Mystery Car


On this date, August 16th, in 1812, American General William Hull surrendered Fort Detroit to the British without so much as an arm wrestle. The recent bankruptcy of the city that shares that name didn’t go down quite so peacefully, and in fact having so large a city, – and Motor City at that – fall into financial ruin is pretty dang depressing.

Of course, we’re here to take your mind of such things and right now were here to bankrupt your Friday productivity with a brain teaser that we like to call the Mystery Car. Not to be a downer but there are some rules to the contest, and those are: make, model, likely engine and year range for the mask avenger above. Oh and, I can assure you it’s not an Avenger.

    That's either a tail light from the 60s, or a dash vent from a Spyker

    The closest thing I can think of is the Vauxhall Victor badged as a Holden, that was used as a development mule for the Corvair.

    Looks like it came from the same reels of footage that include Bigfoot or UFOs.

    I'm thinking that this is a Porsche Abarth Carrera from 1960-61 based on the Porsche 356B platform with the 1600cc motor.
