Well both 99 and 100 share the name with a Indian car.

Another chance to guess.
Is 100 Lincoln Continental?

Well guys time's up

99 is the 1963 Rambler Ambassador 990

and

100 is the 1966 Rambler Ambassador 990 Convertible.


I gave you a hint that it shares its name with an Indian car.

If you look close enough there are quite a few differences.

This is about the non-ID'd white tourer in post #412 by aniguchisan.

It should have had ID:103, so let's assume that.

The white car in the pic is definitely a Marcos Mantula with the 3528 cc Rover/Buick V8 and 5-speed manual box.

The original Dennis Adams designed 1969-1972 Marcos GT came with a angry-sounding Ford Essex V6.

The Marcos Mantula came in 1984 but its bodywork was expanded for the Rover 3.5 litre V8.

The Marcos Martina introduced affordability by replacing the Mantula's V8 with a humbler (but tuned) 2-litre Ford OHC engine (from my Ford Taunus 2.0 Ghia). To accomodate the wider Ford Taunus/Cortina steering rack, it had flared front wheel arches

Firstly, good work to the guys who guessed the Mantula. Not the most common performance car, these days.

As for ID105, it's a DeTomaso Pantera GTS, a cult favourite...and one of my all timers too!
