@stratum 14 inch, roughly oem size except the tires are wider. Yes its a size associated with small cars, but 14 inch with large tires are common in the muscle car era. I will resized them to 16 or 17 common size nowadays, suit the taste with younger generation.

 

@universe i guess at that time american are are unique enough to be a some kind of novelty in Europe, . Now american cars are much like the european or japanese.

@stratumI scaled the wheel to 14 inch (which is indeed incorrect) the torque wheels used on bullitt mustang is 15x8, though fairlane can accomodate larger sized.

That makes sense. I know they still sell big American cars in Europe though. Mostly SUVs/Vans but I don't know about sedans.

@universe because the trucks is the only thing that is still American and they like the manly and muscular good looks. If you fitted a Tahoe with a 4 or 6 cylinder diesel then it sells even better overseas. Ive seen a lot of American light trucks in asia, once their gasoline V-8 worn out, they swapped it with a 4 cylinder diesel engine (usually Japanese sourced)

 

 

Better rims, I have to redo almost the whole wheel, using the old ones as reference.

In the Netherlands there's a fairly good amount of American cars but they are not common at all in the rest of Europe, perhaps Sweden aside. They are not economical for Europe. The only American SUV I know they sell in Europe is the short version of the Escalade and I might have seen a couple of them where I live in all this time.

Sweden got tons of the americans cars, Chargers, Challengers, Vipers, Corvettes....only the sport cars and vans really, I only seen one Malibu here, also some cadillacs.

 

But from what I heard GM desided to quit selling Chevrolet, Cadillac and Buick in Europe, for the sake of Opel.

Chevrolet has indeed been discontinued in Europe, excepting the Camaro that I believe will be avaliable but, Cadillac? Last thing I heard was that they actually were going to expand their market to Europe with their newer models.

 

I heard that Lincoln was considering as well to sell in Europe, as a part of Ford's market globalization.

I know they sold old GMC vans in the Netherlands. I can't cap a picture of it for you but I know the link of where it's used as a swat van.

I believe that most of them are imported and converted by particulars. However, there seem to be many Chevy vans used as ambulances. So I couldn't tell for sure.

I remember passing once a 1980's beaten up GM van on the highway, here in Spain.

@roadrunner, just texture mapping and very few modelling. Obviously europeans like certain american cars with a degree of iconic status. Nobody wants a mundane cars like a cavalier or any similar cars.

 

@nik chevrolet is fairly redundant, nearly most if their cars are based on opel cars.

 

@universe lol interesting video, full sized vans get away types (good for long trip) are common imports...only savana/express is the last true american van.

We in Sweden mainly using Mercedes Sprinter's and Volvo's, not obvious or something lol.

 

But as enforcer vans we use Ford's F-E-Series.

@nik these typical european vans are huge and they got a number of configuration, more than enough for their needs. But certain specialized equipment (certain armour trucks or large ambulances are unavailable in Europe) UK had one of these SWAT type armour trucks based on ford F-350 (looks really bad ass)

 

@roadrunner i heard these used american ambulance are sold cheaply in large numbers.

I never knew ford stopped making vans, but then again I don't follow commercial vehicles as often as I'd like to. What I don't get is how they're using a camper van as a SWAT van, since I doubt they do that in Europe. I'm just guessing that's the closest thing to a SWAT van they had, seeing as they're crazy cheap. It wasn't until the movie when they had an actual SWAT van, some

Mercedes van with a machine gun atop the roof.

Cheap to purchase but not so cheap to maintain, at least in Europe with the gas prices. In the Middle East they seem to be fairly common as ambulances.

 

Ford discontinued the E-series after 40 years using the same platform, replacing it with the European Transit (I believe they still manufacture the cab, tho). Kinda sad to see such a classic van gone.

@roadrunner, True, if they choose a diesel powered, its not that bad compared to a gasoline/petrol v-8 counterparts. American ambulance in Europe are more of a niche, for some reason they like the type III configuration (usually a E-350 1 ton chassis) they are only assign on special cases, for example this one from UK for Motorsports emergencies, from the sound of the engine it a V-8 gasoline/petrol engine.

 

 

This one from Netherlands. From the engine sound, its no doubt a diesel model.

@adam hopefully i get this car asap.

 

@nik even these old e series vans are still cool, one thing i like with these american full sized vans are their looks (not too tall or narrow) and they are really truck like but they havent add any major innovations since the late 70's ford transit alone comes as twice the configurations as the e series or gm express (though 3rd party builders comes up with cool additions)

Off topic:

 

Speaking of American cars in Europe, I found something interesting about Netherlands and French traffics when I was visiting them last week.

 

Many American cars that I saw in Netherlands are dominated with the Chrycorp cars and Tesla (especially the Model S), and most of them are Ram 1500, Grand Voyager, and 300C. Hell, I saw countless of Rams and old Voyagers on the street, especially in suburban areas. Those 300C and Voyagers are also used as taxi over there. Universetwisters stated that GMC used to sell cars in NL. It might be true as I found several of them on the streets of Amsterdam and the surrounding suburbs. Also, I found this old Buick on the street:

About French, you guys might know that the streets have tons of Peugeot-Citroen-Renault. But some cars on the streets have Ontario license plate on them. I don't know why people from Canada would like to bring their vehicles to France (especially Paris), or those are novelty plates, but I saw not just one or two of them on the streets. Anyway, here's the Lincoln with the Ontario license plates (notice the plates are shorter than regular EU plates):

I'm not a big fan of Ford Fairlane, but dayum, that one look hot in red! Can't wait for the LTD though!

Were both plates from Canada? I know one kid who I went to school with had a German front plate (in Florida, you only need a registered rear plate) and he was a f*cking poser because he was actually Italian.

E. Speaking of American cars in Europe, I found some footage of the Rammstein airshow crash and you can see a black, fairly American looking car parked there. I think it's an 80s Ford LTD but I could be wrong.

@universe e series is not 100% dead, the 1 ton cut away chassis are still in production until a 1 ton transit with a powerstroke appears..

[...]

The Voyagers are obiquitous in Europe and the 300c are a pretty common sight as well. How come that the guy of the Lincoln wasn't driving with front euro plates? I thought it was illegal according to the EU normative...

I believe it's a Pontiac LeMans actually, they look quite close from that angle though.

 

There are some pictures of some terrorist attacks some communist group named the Red Army Faction carried out in some US bases in Germany where can be spotted many American cars.

 

bazaRamstajn_akcija.jpg

 

I guess that many of the older American cars in those European countries where the US presence was bigger served at some point in the military bases.

That seems about right considering the Pontiac badge over the plate like the picture below, which is one with Netherlands plates/stickers. Funilly enough in that picture you posted, the mailbox looks like the ones we have in America and it even has a USPS logo on it. It seems like they're trying to make those German bases as close to America as they can.

Well, I've heard that US bases overseas are like "little America", with the services, supermarkets and fast food establishments that can be found in the US; there's apparently no need to get out of the base.

 

Sorry for the off-topic, by the way. Hit me up when you need the ENB shots.

@bundi These american cars are probably had been recently imported and either waiting for a special european plate (american size) or it failed the inspection (highly likely for old cars) and it only got temporary operation permit. In UK they got MOT on every cars registered.

 

@universe virtually every US bases all over the world you can easily spot an american made cars. Even okinawa is filled with LHD american cars.

 

@roadrunner yes i better push it up i want to get this car done before September.

@universetwisters: Both sides have Ontario license plates. I saw that Lincoln and a MINI Cooper Cabrio with that Ontario plates.

 

@RoadRunner71: Dunno, probably there is a regulation that allow vehicles from Canada to be roaming around the French streets, although Ontario is the British part of Canada IIRC.

 

@Carface80: Probably true for the Lincoln, but I saw a MINI Cooper Cabrio with Ontario plates too. Some UK cars have MOT in their license plates, many of them still use plates that contain only the alphabets and numbers. Anyway, MOT means the blue part on the left of European license plates, right?
