    It's a late 60's Holden Monaro. I'm lost on the SS badge though, I recall that there were the GTS Bathurst cars, but don't remember the SS badge.

    Can't see any wheel on the left so unlikely Sth American.

    Looks more like the South African Chevrolet SS... Basically a re-badged Monaro.

    That's the correct title. I had no idea these existed till stumbling across a page with some examples of cars like this from around the world.

    The Chevrolet Opala SS is a typical example of a Brazilian muscle car they produced in the height of the muscle car craze. They presented this handsome fastback coupe in 1969. It came in a wide arrange of formal body styles as Chevrolet’s main mid-size model for the Brazilian market.
    Also, the name, “Opala,” was a bit controversial since the customers thought it represented the mix between the names, “Opel” and “Impala.” But Germany’s Opel was a part of GM who produced a model they called the Rekord. It was visually the same, while the U.S.-made Chevrolet had the Impala. The Impala used the 4.1-liter straight six, the same as the engine for Brazil`s Opalas.
    Either way, Chevrolet decided to introduce the performance version of the Opala that used the same 4.1-liter straight six they tuned to produce 169 HP. Although it was not much by today`s standards, it helped the Opala SS deliver a decent performance. The Opala SS was even successful on the race track, winning many events in Brazil during the 1970s.
    And lastly, the Opala SS got a distinctive appearance package. It included a vinyl roof, racing stripes, graphics and sporty wheels to differentiate them from their lesser cousins.

    South American


    It's an IKA Torino from Argentina

    Process: Left-hand drive but too small for USA. Left-hand drive so not Japanese , Australian, South African et al.
    Too large for European and a bit boxy. So narrowed it down to South American. Not FIAT etc from Brazil so must be from Argentina.

    It looks amazingly similar to a 1970 Chevy Nova that I briefly owned. At that time I drove a rather beat-up Triumph Spitfire Mk 2. My girlfriend rode in it once or twice and then put her foot down. She wasn't going to ride in a car that occasionally had to be push-started!
    I bought the old Chevy as my second - need to get laid- car.

    This isn't my old car, but this is what it looked like, except that mine had a lot more rust!

    Here is the Opala from another angle.

    Where that car threw me was its obviously (to me) an Australian Monaro but with a front end like I'd never seen, and the whole SS thing too. Was very surprised to see that's how they came out of the factory in another continent! Here's the Aussie model for comparison:
    Name That Car-screenshot_20201120-102442_chrome-jpg
    Name That Car-screenshot_20201119-212951_chrome-jpg

    The engine part was interesting too, a 4.1 litre (250ci) straight-six. GM never had a 6 pot engine that size in Australia but had a lot of other options during the Monaro years including 6's sized at 186ci, 202ci, and V8's in 253ci, 307ci, 308ci, 327ci, and 350ci. Might have been others too but I'm a Ford guy so don't know for sure!

    Easy to see it's a LHD by the wipers mounted the other way.

    Here is a pic of the Chevy 250 six that was built from the '60s up to the mid '70s. This is the engine that was in my car.

    How does it compare with the 4.1?

    ^I would think we're talking about one and the same motor, but don't know for sure.

    About as poorly as the Ford six does against the mighty Chrysler Hemi six.

    Reminds me also, stumbled across this last night.

    Pretty sure most will know the make but not the exact model, it's a special homologation version:
