Both are correct statements. A Mustang Station Wagon was produced, but Ford never did a Mustang Station Wagon.

There is interesting reading at:

But my black ID:677 car however is none of these.



Please identify Year, Make, Model.

: AFAIK, I don't think there has ever been a Jaguar E-type shooting brake. So I thought, why don't I try to make one?
Here's my version.

ID:677

I've been following this one since it was posted.

No, I don't have an answer.

But my thoughts are as follows :

4 exhaust outlets implies a V8 or V12 in front ... so probably something British / Italian and even possibly American.

Borrani type wire wheels with wing nuts, tilts the balance towards the exotic British / Italian side.

The above, taken with the round chromed wing mirror and slim rear bumper, implies European '60s car.

Additionally, Ram gave us clues regarding "shooting brake" and "break de chasse" ... which again is very European.

The external fuel filler cap and 2 tail lamp configuration look very Ferrari-ish to me. But these cues are by no means exclusive to that marque. And '60s Ferraris' flanks were never so plain.

Given that the flank and rear are rather plain, leads me to think that the car is coach-built ... but I doubt Ram would flout the rules of what cars can be posted on this thread.

I would guess this car is photographed in the US, given what looks like the rear of a 1st gen Chrysler minivan in the background. Also car is LHD.

But all of the above would have crossed the minds of the veterans on this thread ...

Cheers,

FourWheelDrift

Default ID:677; 1969 Intermeccanica Murena 429 GT two-door station wagon

It has been 24 hours and there have been over 71 views.
But wow, FourWheelDrift. After that brilliant, perspicuous and astute analysis, I can hold-off no longer.

ID:677 is a 1969 Intermeccanica Murena 429 GT two-door station wagon.

Eleven of these cars were manufactured in Turin, Italy between 1967 and 1969 and exported to the USA.

Called the "fastest station wagon in the world, the Intermeccanica Murena was an Italian luxury sports station-wagon.
It was designed by Franco Scaglione (1916-1993) at Construzione Automobili Intermeccanica.

The first prototype was displayed at the April 1969 New York Motor Show, where Intermeccanica had 3 different stands.

The engine was a Ford Thunderbird 7,045 cc [429 cubic inch] 90 degree hi performance V8, breathing through a 4-bbl Autolite carburettor.

Name:  429V8motor.jpg

The V8 developed 360 bhp @ 4600 rpm and 650.79 Newton-metres of torque @ 2800 rpm.
It drove the rear wheels through a Ford C3 automatic like a Ford Thunderbird.

The Intermeccanica Murena weighed 1.713 ton compared to the 2.168 ton Ford Thunderbird.
In 1970, Road & Track magazine testers reached 60 mph in just 7.5 seconds and covered the mile in 15.5 seconds.

The 1.7 ton wagon stopped by using Girling disk brakes all around.

Inside were four leather bucket seats, cut-glass bars, deep-pile carpets, aircraft switches, a state-of-the-art 4-speaker 8-track stereo and an automatic rumble window, which separated the cargo space from the passenger space.

Orders were received for 35 cars but only eleven of these specialist wagons were actually delivered, before Intermeccanica chose to move on to other products.

Intermeccanica, now no longer an OEM
In 1975, Intermeccanica stopped manufacturing cars and changed their business model into that of a replica car builder.

They relocated to San Bernardino, California.
Since 1981 they are known as Intermeccanica International Inc. and are based out of Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.
They now make replicas of the Porsche 1958 roadster, the Porsche 356 1959 Convertible D and the 1940 World War 2 VW Kubelwagen Type 8.

Nope it was a 4-door always with an extra side-rear glass and a pillar since Rover SD1 time. I've never seen a two door pic of Standard 2000, it was one of the most wonderful cars of the 80s, beautiful headlamps, very much futuristic. I think Tata owned one.
