I stumbled on a website for a car dealer in Brazil that I thought other BITOGers might find interesting. They have a bunch of classic Brazilian market Ford, GM, and Chrysler vehicles.http://www.pastorecarcollection.com.br/
Some of the ones I liked...1985 Ford F100 4.9L I6
- This truck has 1967-1972 F-Series "Bumpside" sheetmetal, but was built in the 1980s for the Brazilian market and came with an EFI 4.9L I6.1982 Ford Galaxie Landau
- Looks like it's based off a 1965-68 Galaxie 500...I like how they slightly modernized some things but kept the basic look.1998 Ford F1000 HSD XL
- An odd overgrown Bronco-like vehicle with 92-96 F-Series RCLB sheetmetal. Brazil apparently used to have a bunch of conversion companies that built vehicles like this. There's an even weirder Tahoe one.2010 Ford Ranger crew cab
- As different as it looks, this truck shares its basic platform with the 1983-2011 US market Ranger. It has a diesel.1996 Ford Ranger XL 4.0 Manual
, 1996 Ranger STX Super Cab 4.0 Manual
- These trucks are like US models aside from some labeling, but I doubt I could find any this clean in the US. These things are absolute time capsules, the condition is just amazing.1978 Chevy C10
- This is a Brazilian market C-10, which has a completely unique body from the US models (including previous generations). It looks similar to the LUV in a way. There are a bunch of these trucks on the website, mostly in excellent condition.1994 Chevy D20 Conquest
- This truck appears to be loosely based on the 73-87 US market trucks, but with heavily reworked sheetmetal below the windows and a diesel engine. There is a similar truck on there with a carbureted gas I6. This one still has plastic on the seats.1997 Chevy Blazer Executive
- While based on the US Blazer, these were built in Brazil for that market. I think the Isuzu Hombre style grille is interesting, along with the 5-speed manual in a loaded 4 door. I don't think a manual was even offered in 4 door Blazers in the US, though I could be wrong there.
This is just the tip of the iceburg and the vehicles that caught my attention. There's a bunch more on there, from small cars to a Tahoe/Grand Blazer with a diesel and manual. Definitely worth a look if you have some time to kill and like unique vehicles. There are other brands represented too, but most of the Brazil-only stuff was Ford/GM/Chrysler.
