@Clevermax Since ID 680 is still open, it wouldn't be a clever thing to put another entry....

ID:680

Looks similar to a Abarth Porsche 356 Carrera to me ... the wheels and the extended nose with added headlamps are the clues.

Can't find any evidence of the same, but my guess is this is a Abarth Porsche 911.

Cheers,

FourWheelDrift

ID:682 is definitely a Mopar (Chrysler) product. I would say 1957.
Having said that ahead, let me take the time to identify the exact product.

OK. It is a 1957 Chrysler New Yorker.



The Chrysler Saratoga would have single headlamps, not twin.
Also it would be missing the two lower fangs in the bumper and some alternate cosmetics -- like the side spear.

The picture was taken at the Autoworld museum,
located at
Jubelpark 11, 1000 Brussels, Belgium.
The yellow ochre car next to it is a 1957 Borgward Isabella.

OK. Here goes...

ID:680 is a 1966 APAL 1200 coupé



The APAL 1200 coupé was based on a VW Beetle floorplan with a 1,192 cc VW aircooled 40 bhp engine.

Roughly 150 APAL coupés were made.


APAL, stands for Application Polyester Armé de Liège
meaning Application:Reinforced Polyester of Liège--a provincial town in Belgium.

They were a Belgian company who made sports cars from 1961 to 1965.

Today they are named, Apal GmbH and are based in Ostercappeln, a municipality in the district of Osnabrück, in Niedersachsen (Lower Saxony), Germany.

From 2006 onwards, they have stopped making complete cars and only sell kits and spares.

Nice one again Ram!But doesn't it look strikingly similar to the 1960 Porsche 356B Carrera GTL Abarth, as pointed out by FourWheelDrift?

Attachment 210361
The first thing that I saw were the rounded corners and external hinges on the front lid, telling me it was fibreglass and not the superleggera aluminum that the Porsche Abarth would be.
So it had to be the product of some obscure little workshop.

Another thing was the clumsy headlamp rings on the Apal, as opposed to the elegant faired in headlamps on the Abarth Carrera.

Looks gave the polyester APAL away.

And of course, while the 1.6 litre DOHC racing Abarth Carrera produces 115 to 140 bhp depending on tuning, the Apal putters along with a Premier Padmini sized 40 bhp engine.

As the saying goes: कहाँ राजा भोज, कहाँ गंगू तैली ?
