That's because it's a truck.

You're both on the right track, but Curtis was the first to mention GMC, which is the answer I was looking for.

The Gaucho was one of the models of G series full-size vans offered by GMC in the mid 1970's. I suspect that the Gaucho was a Canadian market vehicle, but I'm not sure. They are very rare. This is the best picture I could come up with on a Google image search:

(seriously, that's the best I could find)

My neighbor had one of these when I was a kid. It is the only one I've ever seen. In my area, they called this a GMC Rally or Vandura, and it's Chevy equivalent was the Beauville. Beauvilles started as a 4 door Bel-Air station wagon in 1955.

In case anyone's wondering, the Caballero Diablo was one of the GMC versions of the El Camino. It had a huge decal on the hood similar to what a Firebird had.

Wow, I thought this would have been an easy question.

Curtis, the floor is yours....

Redlightning posted his answer after I started composing my last post. I didn't see it before declaring Curtis the winner. Furthermore, the answer I was looking for was "GMC"; Curtis was the first to mention GMC.

Here we go

Askam Kamyon Imalat adopted this name for his truck production in Argentina, Finland, India, and Turkey... but only after one of the big three was done using the name for one of their own foreign-market trucks.

Dodge Fargo



Some guy even put the word "Dodge" on the front of his Fargo.

A quote from the Fargo wiki article...

Quote:
The name Fargo was discontinued after 1972 for Canada, but lived longer for other countries around the world under the Chrysler Corporation's badge engineering marketing approach. Most of the Fargo trucks and bus chassis sold in Argentina, Finland, Australia, India, and other countries in Europe and Asia were made in Chrysler's Kew (UK) plant. Most were also sold under the Dodge and Commer names.

The Fargo brand still exists in Turkey, where Fargo and DeSoto trucks are made by Askam Kamyon Imalat with no technical or business connection with Chrysler.

Ok, it's past noon, I can't wait!!

What is the difference between a 64 1/5 Mustang hood an a 65?

And for bonus points, big time bonus points. What is the difference in the passenger front seat the first two weeks of production compared to the rest?
