Matra-Simca Bagheera, 1973. Designed by Antoine Volanis and named after the panther character from The Jungle Book, Matra’s Bagheera used the transverse drivetrain from a front-drive Simca 1307 placed amidships. The car’s most unusual feature was its three abreast seating configuration with the driver on the left. It remained in production until 1980 when it was rebadged the Talbot-Matra Bagheera after Peugeot’s takeover of Simca. It was replaced by the Talbot-Matra Murena

really depressing to see what lancia is making now, they basically make a 500 rebadge, a chrysler 300c with a lancia badge, a chrysler grand voyager (town and country) with a lancia badge, and a fiat bravo with a lancia badge, no sporty models, nothing exciting, just plain shit

AMC Rambler American Station Wagon (330 trim, 3rd Generation 1964-69)

Today’s post comes is another dose of car culture thanks to Shahin of Paykan Hunter

This fascinating find would be rare in the States, but is even more interesting since this American happens to be in Iran. Shahin was able to chat with the owner and learned some interesting details; the car was owned by a former US Embassy staffer, and is (most likely) the only one of it’s kind in the country.

On top of that, here’s a little bit of trivia: from 1966-74 the Rambler was assembled in Iran for domestic use. They didn’t use the name, but rather rebadged them Aria and, coincidentally, Shahin to denote trim levels. 

Seen in Iran
