Judging by the license plate, ID:698 might be a South African product, although I haven't managed to find anything relevant. Anyway, gentlemen, what's with the recent trend of introducing offroad vehicles? Have you run out of ideas?

Guess the make and the country of manufacture . it's easy enough but with a twist.

I would say late 50s AC Aceca - but too easy, no? I have to be missing something.

ID:698 If we combine Ram's and Double Mac's responses, we have it.

This is a Trax from South Africa. And judging from this site Mammoth Trucks-Geoff's Trax, it appears that our Indian Trax got it's inspiration from this vehicle.

ID:699 Looks like karlosdeville has it.

Cheers,

Default ID:700; 1965 SIAM Di Tella 1500

Ah, this car has the classic sixties Pininfarina midsized saloon look -- like the Morris Oxford V, Fiat 1800, Austin A55 Cambridge, Isuzu Bellel, Riley 4/72, MG Magnette III, Wolseley 15/60, Peugeot 404, ...

But ID:700 is a 1965 SIAM Di Tella 1500 made in Argentina.

SIAM stands for Sección Industrial Amasadoras Mecánicas (Industrial Section for Breadmixer Machines)

It was powered by the same 1489 cc 55 bhp 4 cylinder engine driving a 4-speed gearbox with column shift as our Hindustan Ambassador.

Like its siblings also designed by Pininfarina, it had a monocoque body.

Like the Isuzu Bellel in Tokyo and the Peugeot 404 in Paris, the SIAM Di Tella 1500 was a very successful taxicab in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The factory was in the town of Monte Chingolo in Buenos Aires Province, Argentina.

It is interesting to note the front bumper over riders. Even contemporary Fiats of the era (like the 1100s, 600s, 500s) sported similar over riders (only in Argentina). Was it some sort of legislation there?

Well, it would've been moderately easy, if karlosdeville hadn't solved the puzzle for me. I do expect tougher entries though, say, of the DKW-Vemag Fissore / Intermeccanica Murena caliber.

By the way, your Polish, sir, appears as flawless as your automotive erudition.

I'm afraid I haven't a clue what this is, though the resemblance of the Gazel to this is uncanny!
