The tricky thing about the Pegaso Z-102 is that there were several variants available designed by different coachbuilding companies. Apart from the 'native' design Ram posted and the spectacular Saoutchik, there was also a Carrozzeria Touring Spyder and a Serra edition which I really don't know much about so it might be a good idea to ask Ram for some basic info in order to resolve the Z-102 issue for good.

I must say I feel a little crushed about not having been able to identify the 1967 DKW-Vemag Fissore (as my registration was awaiting approval) which - funnily enough - I had come across searching for the Argentinian edition of the Auto Union 1000 (also designed by Fissore). I feel even more crushed with regards to the Intermeccanica Murena which I actually posted myself in a similar thread on another forum. That was a clever choice, Ram, as Wikipedia only mentions that model without providing any pictures and the ConceptCarz site doesn't feature it either. Just the same, keep those classics coming - it's a truly inspiring, educational thread!

ID:686 is a British Anzani Astra manufactured between 1954-59. Judging by the pictures I've found, I'd say the model in the picture is a 1956.

ID 686
Correct Double Mac,British Anzani Astra 1956
This is the last surviving vehicle that is known

In the UK, British Anzani outsourced the manufacture of their engines to Coventry Ordnance Works Ltd. In the 1920s it was refinanced as British Vulpine Engine Company and then again as British Anzani Engineering Company concentrating on small engines and car and motorcycle powerplants. They supplied AC Cars with the 1496cc side-valve four cylinder (that would become AC's famous 2-litre motor), Frazer-Nash with an 1496cc ohv engine, Morgan Motor Company with a V-twin, and Squire with the R1 twin cam engine. Their most well known products came to be in motorcycles, lawnmowers and outboard engines. Cotton and Greeves motorcycles used Anzani motors.

In later years the company diversified and as the British Anzani Group it finally went into liquidation in 1980.

I should've mentioned that the pictured vehicle is believed to be the last surviving unit but - since I discovered the info immediately after providing the answer - I decided to refrain from double-posting. Additionally, some sources (particularly the British 'Car and Classic' site which features the photo you used) claim that this exact specimen is a 1955 for some reason.

According to Wikipedia the Astra is a relative of the Lightburn Zeta manufactured in Australia between 1963 and 1966. The bodywork, however, was altered to such an extent (I'm referring to the estate version, of course) that my mind initially refused to make any associations between the two. Thus, I had to track down the Astra the hard way.

Wiki also mentions that the Astra was optionally available in kit form. Does it qualify as a 'kit car' then? Personally, I'm a bit hazy with regards to the definition.

ID:688 is a 1951 Packard, if I'm not mistaken. Not sure about the model though.

Aha... 'one of three Packard custom cars built by Carl Schneider and Peter Portugal of Eureka, California'? But that would mean it's a one-off, wouldn't it?
