Identify Me - NEW on p8

Recommended Posts

Time for another dump of stuff in here then.  Let's see what you can figure out.

 

100 - this one has been really bugging me, as it happens.

Hand-built Russian car probably based on an Opel Rekord.  http://izismile.com/2011/06/25/brilliant_russian_man_builds_his_own_sleek_car_37_pics.html - Mercrocker for the link and AMCRebel for identifying any part of it.

101 - familiar shape, but I can't pull it out from the recesses of my memory.  I'm guessing something like a Lincoln or Oldsmobile.

1967 Cadillac Eldorado - Asimo, Junkman

102 - I think these are all Ford Falcons, maybe  mid-60s?

1962 Ford Falcon Wagon - Junkman

1964 Ford Falcon Sprint hardtop - Junkman

1961 Ford Falcon Wagon - Junkman

103 - Chevy, or Pontiac?  Something else?

1964 Chevrolet Impala Sport Coupe - Junkman

post-5335-0-75260400-1524791739_thumb.jpg

 

104 - Another familiar shape that I can't place.  Buick perhaps?

1959 Ford Country Sedan - Junkman, davocano

post-5335-0-40192700-1524791763_thumb.jpg

 

105 - 50s Chevy or Plymouth?  I can't decide.

1949 Chevrolet - Junkman

post-5335-0-72641400-1524791815_thumb.jpg

 

106 - No idea.  Something 60s.  Sunliner?

1960 Oldsmobile 88 Holiday - Junkman

post-5335-0-45709800-1524791837_thumb.jpg

 

107 - Ford again?  I'm rubbish at these, they all look the same to me :/

1956 Ford F-100 - Junkman

post-5335-0-60317500-1524791858_thumb.jpg

 

108 - I suspect Invicta or Electra.

1960 Buick Invicta Hardtop - Junkman

post-5335-0-55243500-1524791882_thumb.jpg

 

109 - There's what look like Chevy bowties on the hubcaps, but it seems a bit small and looks a bit like an Opel or Toyota.  Stumped on this one.

1969/1970 Chevrolet Opala - Barrett, Junkman

Bit custom heavy in this batch, not very Autoshitey, just happens to be what's at the top of my stack.  Usefully stuff that's been identified before has helped me clear some others I didn't know, so a dozen answers in here can often help identify several dozen in my reference folders.

Yes, but what IS IT?  I had to convert it from a bmp file.  Who even uses bmp files online?  It was a recent accidental find and had no info attached.  Folks in the background looked dressed for the later 70s or early 80s, that's really the only clue I have.  Maybe the tyres hint at America?

Are we sure the yellow thing is real? I know that's a lame response when faced with a car one has never seen before, but surely we would know about that if it was an actual thing?

 

ps - 109 is one of those Brazilian-built Chevrolet Opalas

100 has the look of a Cavalier 2/Ascona C/Isuzu Florian ASKA (the doors and esp the handles)from side on.  I was wondering if it might be a Bitter given their Opel tie-up - but Google says no.

 

Edit - Mercrocker beat me to it as I was typing that

110 - That looks like a Lada badge on the front so I'm guessing it's a concept car of theirs.  Can't find anything else on it, often don't have much luck finding stuff on Russian cars.

111 - I'm being lazy on this one, so it's an easy score for someone.  I can see it says Comet on the back so I can probably guess it.

112 - Genuinely no idea.

post-5335-0-17162700-1524837977_thumb.jpg

 

113 - Plymouth?

post-5335-0-13394200-1524838027_thumb.jpg

 

114 - Daihatsu?

post-5335-0-60355200-1524838045_thumb.jpg

 

115 - Not a clue.

post-5335-0-71702000-1524838072_thumb.jpg

 

116 - No idea here either.  I reckon I'd know it from a different angle.

post-5335-0-17420500-1524838092_thumb.jpg

 

117 - This had better not be an Econoline, the van I can never identify.

post-5335-0-07383100-1524838124_thumb.jpg

 

118 - This one is a Ford, I think, I want to say either a Sunliner or a Victoria... Junkman will know.

post-5335-0-60920000-1524838184_thumb.jpg

 

119 - Can't decided between a Datsun or a Toyota for this one.  Maybe it's neither.

110 - Forward looking: A Lada-made electric concept car is revealed at the Russian International Auto Exhibition in 1999

 

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2130942/Lada-Russia-announces-end-manufacturing-ridiculed-car.html

 

119 - Datsun B110, That one is specifically a Datsun 1200 Coupe as it is a New Zealand car.

119 is Epic. I used to see lots of seventies Japanese coupes driving around Christchurch in the early 2000's.

 

NZ has a good JDM scene, lots of older Japanese cars still pootle around in good condition because they don't put salt on their roads. Not unusual to see sixties and seventies cars with smokey engines and faded paint but minimal rot. I still think there is money to be made shipping older cars from there to here where the parts and shells could be worth decent coin.

 

For example this is about £400...and an awful lot more solid than one that had been living here. And it has the advantage of being RHD

 

Buy it and trailer it back. Now that would be an epic thread! "Three weeks in and just docked at Mumbai ready for the drive across Asia into Europe"
