ID 621.

That car is definitely not from the US. My guess would be its from an Eastern Block country or from South America.

Been racking my mind but cant place it. Is it a Moskovitch ???

Default ID:621; 1963 Willys Aero 2600

It isn't a 1963 but Yes, SAHIR.KITTUR, you were closest to the answer. Congratulations!

ID:621 is a 1967 Ford Aero-Willys 2600.

Willys of the Willys Jeep fame manufactured the Willys Aero cars,
alongside the Willys CJ-3B, the Willys Station Wagons and FC Trucks from 1952 through 1955.

After building 91,377 Aeros in Toledo, Ohio, USA by 1955, USA production ended. Kaiser-Willys USA decided to concentrate solely on Jeeps thereafter.

In 1956, Willys shipped the tooling for their cars to their Brazilian subsidiary, Willys-Overland do Brasil S.A.

Willys-Overland do Brasil S.A. built the Aeros from 1960 to 1972
at São Bernardo do Campo, in the state of São Paulo, Brazil.
Until 1962, the car was assembled almost unchanged from the old USA model.

Brooks Stevens restyled the Willys Aero for 1963.

Willys-Overland do Brasil S.A. made altogether 1,16,967 cars in Brazil.
The models were the Aero 2600, Itamaraty, and Executivo stretch limo.

These had the F-head in-line 6-cylinder 2638 cc engines in 90 bhp, 110 bhp and 132 bhp variants.
The 110 bhp variant put out 110 bhp @ 4400 rpm and 190.25 Newton-metre torque @ 2000 rpm.

Ford acquired Willys-Overland do Brasil in Oct. 1967. They continued to build and sell the Willys Aero until the 1970s.

The car in the picture is a Ford-built Willys Aero 2600, immediately post acquisition.

Ford also built and sold the Willys Itamaraty, the Willys Itamaraty Executivo stretch limousine, the Willys F-75 pick-up truck and the Willys Jeep in Brazil.

ID 623 : No not the right one.

ID 624: You've hit the bulls eye sir. Its a Vauxhall Victor and its production was between 1972 - 1976. It used to have 4 different engine options from 1.8L to 3.3L and produced 78bhp to 124bhp.

But let's not post the next ID, until ID 623 is identified.
