1995 Land-Rover Range Rover Series II [P38a]
The Medallion (2003)
uhm ... Model Year is pre-1999 ... 2006-12-19 07:50
1988 Alfa Romeo 75 [162B]
Asfalto (2000)
J-2 wrote 1992

Impossible.
May have been registered in Spain in 1992, but is an earlier make. Wing mirrors, rear 'plastic' emblem and rear orange reflective strip give this as a 1st series, 1985-1988 or 1989 (not sure).
By 1992 there was only one model in the 75 range, it was the 1.6IE (Iniezione Elettronica), and it had a red reflective strip and the 'rubber' edge rear spoiler.

1987 Ford F-100 4X4
La Ciénaga (2001)
Though landrover1 is right, I believe the 4x4 version was dubbed 'F-150' to differentiate from the 'standard' one ... I also believe this version of the F-Series started to be built in Argentina later than 1987 (maybe 1989, I have to check). 2006-11-12 09:03
1982 Ford Falcon Rural 3.6 Ghia [71-B/C]
La Ciénaga (2001)
"Aguante el Falcon!"
Great car ... one of the few Fords I accept ;)

According to the insignias, it says 3.6 Ghia (221 engine) ... last generation (1982 onwards), model anytime between 1982-1987 (after they used a rubber strip all-around the chromed bumper)

Historias mínimas (2002)
Uhm ... similarly to here /vehicle.php?id=63751 we should consider origin of this vehicle.
Usually Argentinean F-100s had Falcon engine/transmission (221 engine if I recall right), which I believe it was dropped from US models after the 4th gen ...

Renault 12 Break [X17]

Uh I forgot ... early cars have IKA and not Renault badges .. I'll search to check from what year the change was introduced ... 2006-11-10 09:26
Renault 12 Break [X17]
Historias mínimas (2002)
antp wrote It is considered as a French car even if built in Argentina I guess... maybe just "made for Argentina" then


I disagree ... a lot! :D
Dacias are considered 'Romanian' cars and they are also R12's .... the Argentinean cars are not CKDs, they are "the real thing". Some story:

When Renault studied the possibility to build the R12 in Brazil and Argentina, they started to negotiate with Willys (after Ford) in Brazil, this deal resulting in the 'Ford Corcel', which was much less Renault and much more Ford than the French expected (much US-styled) and pretty much died on its own.
Dealings between Renault and Kaiser (through its local branch IKA = Industrias Kaiser Argentina) were more successful, echoing the excellent results achieved previously by IKA with the Dauphine, the Gordini, the R4 (still in production at the time) and the R6.

So it was that the first Argentinean-built R12 started assembly in the IKA-Renault plant of Cordoba on 1970, and it was officially presented for commerce on May 1971. Production would last until 1994, including other a range of engines (1400 e 1600 and a diesel which displacement I cannot remember) and trim never seen on its european counterparts (including AC and leather seats! :D).
Many people believe Renault Argentina (formerly CIADEA after IKA abandoned its operations in Argentina) should not have stopped production, but unfortunately the 12 was too old to compete with more recent imports, though still a top-saler at the moment of its demise.

Over these 23 years of production 444,045 units were built, making it one of the most successful Argentinean cars ever. Nine times it was acclaimed as the year top-seller, five of these times it was consecutive ;), peaking at 42,921 in 1980, and complete vehicles were also exported to Chile and Uruguay y Angola. A true success.

Imho, the Argentinean-R12 is as French as a Dacia is ... you guys choose.

(sorry for the long post ... I've learned to drive in my granpap 1980's R12 TL ... I much miss him ... and the car :( )

1984 Honda XL 350 R
The Wraith (1986)
antp wrote I do not know why these bikes codes are often mixed in this way, we often have different code style for the same code (i.e. sometimes number first, sometimes letters first)


Let's establish a criteria and if you want I can try to equal all of them, at least Honda ones (my first homework! :lol:)
I'd suggest use the Honda standard: my ex-Transalp was, according to bike manufacturer documents, labeled as "XL 600 V Transalp".
What you guys think?

1979 Ford F-100
Historias mínimas (2002)
In Argentina it was called F-100 (and built there).
The F-150 applied only to the generation that came after (the one with rectangular headlights flushed with the hood).

Renault 12 Break [X17]
Historias mínimas (2002)
No. Renault 12 (and 18) station wagons were called "Break'. 'Rural' is the translation, but it was not applied commercially (for Renaults).
Should this be labeled as an Argentinian origin?

:D that was a trick one ... OAO would translate as 'Inc.' in english ... in a way it is part of the make ...
Same way as Ford is 'Ford Motor Company' and Honda is actually 'Honda Motor Company, Ltd.', or Fiat is actually FIAT S.p.A. ...

datsunZ wrote

All Fiats outside equipments could vary Country by Country(probably in France you 've got different body trims respect Italian-marketed ones),and those fender widening could be even an aftermarket accessory(I exclude could be a Uno 70,'cause that model was much diffused on export markets,like Germany;in Italy the more diffused Unos of that series were the 45,the 55,and the diesel-fueled Uno D,the unique together at Uno 70 to have 5-doors,being the sporty Turbo i.e.only with 3-doors)


I did not understand ... all Unos were available in Italy in either 3 or 5 drs (except the Turbo) and various trim levels ... ?

yep ... 1/2 ton ... not much light-weight actually ... :D
I remember reading somewhere that by the time the vehicles were "ready" the choppers that were supposed to lift them (Wessex I believe) had upgraded their load, which could enable them to lift a "normal" 88 ... :D

1985 Nissan Cherry Europe GTI [920]
Esto es un atraco (1987)
mm wrote Well, the Arna was seen as one of the Alfas with the lowest quality ever made. And it didn't sell too well...
The Arna was named from the initials of "Alfa Romeo Nissan Autoveicoli".


I tend to disagree with you ... Arna's failure rate was in the better part of the Alfa average at the time, surely better than the Alfasud (not hard actually), better than the 33, and generally even better than the Alfa-Nord production of the time.
The Arna did not sell mostly because customers would not identify its design with a "true" Alfa Romeo, helped also by a lame marketing strategy.
PS: I've had the pleasure and opportunity to drive a TI around, and it was fun, like a souped up 33 can be ;)

1988 Moto Guzzi V 75
Lovejoy (1986-1994)
Agree with jplemoine .... the V75 it is in fact a rare bird ... even in Italy nowadays ...
In addition to the "known" electrical quality problems and 16" handling, the V75 had - like the V35 Imola II and the V65 Lario - a 4-valve per cylinder layout, which gave a lot - I mean a LOT - of serious problems due to the poor quality of the materials employed (valves dropping inside the cylinder, etc.)
Pity, because a bike so light and balanced rides great when tuned 'right' ;)

Compliments for the great find! :)
