ID:363

This beautiful two door sedan was photographed in a town in Scania, southern Sweden. The town is host to one of Scandinavia's largest 17th century institutions for education and research.

But what is this car parked in front of a cosy downtown shop front area?

Is it a Swedish car? Nossir!

Default ID:363; 1958 Borgward Isabella-TS two door saloon

ID:363 is a 1958 Borgward Isabella-TS two door saloon.

It debuted at the Frankfurt Motor Show (IAA) in September 1955.

The 1,498 cc engine breathed through a large twin choke downdraft Solex, putting out 75-bhp din (82 bhp SAE) @ 5200 rpm. It was probably the fastest 1500cc; volume produced; standard 5-seater 2-door saloon car; in the world, attaining 146 km/h, whilst still returning 16 km/litre !

What is this little brown two-door runabout?
Wouldn't you say, it shares the spirit of the old 1983 Maruti 800?

Bertone rebodied Mini but later Daihatsu mechanicals replaced the old 1275 cc engine. innocenti used to assemble Minis and Austin 1100 in Italy till BLMC went bust then Detomaso took over.

Default ID:364; 1974 Leyland Innocenti Mini 90L

No Ajmat. ID:364 is not a de Tomaso Innocenti, but you're close.

ID:364
is the deTomaso's predecessor, the 1974 Leyland Innocenti Mini 90L with the chrome bumpers.

As you've mentioned, its three-door hatchback body for Mini mechanicals was indeed styled by Bertone. But it had a BMC 998 cc A-series engine putting out 43 bhp.

When BLMC went bankrupt in 1976, Innocenti was sold to de Tomaso.
The deTomaso Innocentis came out in 1976.


1976 deTomaso-Innocenti Mini 120L

They had ground effects plastic paraphernalia, moulded plastic bumpers (in place of the original chrome items), with integral front foglamps and a go-faster air intake mounted on the bonnet.

The Innocenti Mini was even sold in the UK and targeted to replace the British Mini, but failed to do so.

Default ID:365; 1971 Fiat 127

Mechanicals
The 1971 Fiat 127 used Fiat's tried and trusted 903 cc 47 bhp pushrod OHV engine.

It was not Fiat's first street car to have transverse engine, front wheel drive layout. That credit goes to the earlier Fiat 128.
The Fiat 127 continued the state-of-the-art (for 1971) transverse engine, front wheel drive layout like our Marutis.
It was a scaled-down Fiat 128 with exceptional utilization of space (80% of the floor space available for payload: passengers+luggage).

The 127 had Fiat's legendary roadholding. It had a unique transverse leaf spring suspension at the rear.

Fiat paid special attention to passenger safety in this small package, with the body designed for progressive deformation in an accident impact.

Accolades
The Fiat 127 was the first of the ‘superminis’, a size and type that has now become universal.
It became Europe’s best-selling car.
Other manufacturers were quick to copy its ‘packaging’ – the first being the Renault 5 in 1972.
It was also the role model for Ford's Fiesta hatch.
It was a unique combination of a small city grocery-shopping car and a satisfying car on the highway in the holidays.

It won the European Car of the Year award in 1972.

History
The Fiat 127 was made from 1971 to 1985.
In 1977 was added, the facelifted Fiat 127 ‘Nuova’ with a 50bhp 1,050 cc OHC engine.
In 1978 came the 160 km/h, Fiat 127 Sport with its tuned 70bhp version of the 1,050cc engine.
In 1981 Europeans started to demand diesels, and the Fiat 127 was among the first to offer a 1,301cc, 45bhp diesel in this class of car.

ID:366 is the lovely Fiat 2300S 2+2 coupe
, designed by Ghia. Most Fiats were designed by Pininfarina. It is not certain how many of such robust coupes were made and they were produced between 1961-68. This car had all round disc brakes and did 119mph with its 2279cc six cylinder engine by Abarth, churning out a healthy 150 bhp @ 5600 rpm. It was nicknamed the poor man's Ferrari. This was more of a GT than a sports car as the heavy Ghia designed body did not allow it to sprint in a lively manner as expected.

What's this big American?
Its OEM chrome wheel covers were shaped to mimic uncovered steel wheels (lugs and all).

No @pawan.

It isn't a Chevrolet Impala at all.

Chevrolet Impalas of the 'sixties are easily identified by their
three individual tail-lamp theme.

That's with the exception of the 1966 and 1967 Impalas which had rectangular tail lamps held in a cluster.
