Thanks for any info on this.
Sorry I only have this one picture,
Thanks for looking
Looks short. Is it the picture or is it smaller than your typical 50s yank?
Look under the hood
I wonder what's in it????
Probably not a V8 ??? but who knows
i like it!
4 cylinder, really little 4 cylinder its a symca. I would say somewhere between '57 and '60.
It's cool, gonna buy it?
What's that behind it that looks like a '56 Plymouth turned into a pickup truck?
Edit: Okay, fin is on the ID car, but it still looks like a wagon turned pickup back there.
ed says its a vauxall
Thanks for the ideas leads. Googling around
Simca Aronde looks kinda similar but have yet to find anything that's a definite match.
It's a pretty small car, I would think its European but it definitly has a late 50's American look to it. (at least in my mind)
I think the car behind it was a Ranchero? can't recall.. need to go get more pictures I guess. the car had a trim with a name of model? on it but I can't remember, I took the pictures back in November.
Goliath 1100 Coupe.
The body side trim and the rear quarter window are throwing me!.
I don't need any more projects but if the price was right I could see saving it. if there is anything left to save! it's been sitting in the mud for a long time from the looks of it.
put a sbc in it and wheely bars and make a drag car out of it!!! lol just kidding
DING DING DING I think we have a winner! Goliath tiger coupe maybe.
Goliath was one of Carl C F Borgward's 4 car companies.
Borgward, Hansa, Lloyd, and Goliath.
I've seen the Coupe as a Goliath Hansa 1100 Coupe as well.
Very short production run.
( only 2 years or so)
Must be a very rare car...
Wonder what it is worth all rusted out as I'm sure it is. Bet that back glass would be impossible to find! Googling I still haven't found one that looks exactly like this one.
I'll have to get more pictures and see if they'll take $400 for it! (I'm sure thats more than double scrap price...)
Let us know.
We're Hot Rodders.
Cut it up...
there ya go! maybe drop a flathead in it and take it to Bonneville
Homely little thing.
Now that is one I have never seen, very interesting. Nice job of I.D. work as always from this crowd. Cool!, thanx for sharing. ~sololobo~
x2. Save it.
out standing my grand pops had one for years
Put a Subaru WRX engine in that puppy. Did you notice that the engine is hug from the same fixture that carries the front transverse leaf spring and there is a steering rack mounted to the firewall. Original engineis an 1100, so a turbo 2 liter flat 4 would kick it up a notch or two.
didn't Simca make a copy of the V8 60?
Im with buying and hot rodding it.
