Rewind to Stockholm, Sweden, in the middle of the 1960s

We’re traveling back to Stockholm, Sweden, in the middle of the 1960s. We assumed that 99 percent of the cars roaming around the capital 50 years ago would be Swedish, but a glance at the pictures below reveals that’s far from the case.

What car(s) can you identify in the pictures below?  What one(s) would you most like to have in your garage?  Personally, we’d be happy with any of the two-stroke Saabs.

  1. As a Dutchman I am happy to see the Daf on the fourth picture, but the ‘auntie’ Rover P3 on the second pic is my favorite despite the damage on the LH front side
