What is this?

Recommended Posts

I am not intimately familiar with these european-market variants, but I'll talk it thru. Right off the bat it looks like an Opel circa 1960, but that side trim is straight off a '56 Ford. That's as close as I'm going to go: circa '58 (eropean) Ford. Cortina?

OK, here's a hint:

This model has gone through tons of evolution, and it still exists today. It has diverted from its original market at least twice.

Nobody?

Here's another hint: The name still exist, but the particular manufacture of this one is gone. It's related to two of Sixty8's cars.

It does put me in mind of a Euro or Aussie Ford, but I guess it has to be a Datsun/Nissan, and the model has to be Bluebird, President, or Skyline.

I was going to say a late 50s Ford Taunus but now I'm confused.

Is it related somehow to the Q45 & 810 Maxima? :huh:

Yes.

Damn... I didn't know this one is that hard...
