    Chrysler obviously; since it's RHD, I'd say from Australia.

    Brazilian VW Type III Variant.

    Could be, Bob. danged if I can recall what a Type III was but the picured car was sold as
    the VW Brasilia in the mid 70s. They were very numerous when I was in Rio during 1976.

    How 'bout this?->

    That's what the Aussies call a Ute but it's wearing a Euro license plate. It's obviously based on a mid -50s Chrysler, the spiffy wheels and probably the tonneau are add-ons.

    I'm stumped. (No one-offs remember!)

    I deleted that image, but yeah it was a Chrysler "UTE."

    Well, the Chrysler part is right anyway

    Bob is that some kind of Humber military vehicle?

    how some of those little foreign cars look like they have "faces" ripped off of older domestic cars. For instance, look at that Ford Anglia. Then look at a '57 Packard (or, more appropriately I guess, a '57 Packardbaker :-) Very strong resemblance.

    That 1966 Fiat 2300 sedan looks like they forces the front end of a 1958 Chrysler Windsor on to it! Right down to the medallion in the center of the grille!
  • andre1969andre1969 Posts: 22,233
    well if it was a domestic car, it would be a 1969 Dodge, either a Polara or Monaco. But if it's an import, most likely it's actually on the shorter Plymouth Fury wheelbase, just wearing Dodge sheetmetal, and with some Chrysler name that hadn't been used in years, such as "Windsor" or "Saratoga"

    It's a South African export model...sold as simply the Chrysler "383".

    Probably about the last fullsize Mopar export model.

    Whoa, that's one I've never seen. :surprise: It looks like it could be one of Exner's earlier Italo-American/Ghia efforts. The windshield suggests it's from the '50-'54 time frame, as do the two-tones and wide whitewalls.

    Izzat a one off Bob :confuse: :surprise:

    Nope, not even close. it is from 1950s Europe though, and no, not a one-off (as far as I know).

    a Fiat. The meanest teacher in my elementary school owns one. why i remember this? Cause I keyed it one day. Hers was light green and i believe has 4 doors.

    that those 0-100 times for the 1981 Zastava are in km/h, and not mph! :-)
  • andys120andys120 Loudon NHPosts: 16,795
    1981 Zastava 101
    Exactly, it's that exact car in your link, obviously a license-built
    Fiat 128 sedan, curiously the steering wheel bears the Fiat logo. Zastava, a Croatian-based auto maker are the same folks who sent us the execrable Yugo
    which was mechanically also a Fiat 128 but with different hatchback bodywork.

    The C-pillar of the Zastava 101 is slightly different from the 128 as is some of the trim but otherwise it looks identical.

    I'll let Shifty take a stab at it, before I spill the beans. :P

    Bob
  • andys120andys120 Loudon NHPosts: 16,795
    It has to be Italian or French,Bob. I'm pretty well versed on Italian cars and I don't know it so I'll take a stab that it's French possibly w Italian styling :confuse:

    There are more countries in Europe than France and Italy.

    Oh Shifty, where art thou?

    That's a tough one....I'll take a guess because it sort of reminds me of the style of Pegaso, from Spain, but I don't recall that body style exactly.

    1992 Moneverdi Hai 650F1

    Yes, I'll ignore the fact that you misspelled Monteverdi if you can tell us Peter Monteverdi's nationality and the numerical designation of the first Monteverdi Hai.
