Ford Manx by KyleAndTheClassics Ford Manx by KyleAndTheClassics
1975 Ford Ghia Manx concept car, one of the cars that was built in response to the 1973 Oil Embargo Crisis. I want this thing and I don't know why (Probably because of an obsession I have with the odd, unordinary, and four doors).

from the Sarasota Classic Car Museum

I would love to use your picture for the German Wikipedia article about this special vehicle. But in order for that to happen I need your permission to use it under Creative Commons BY-SA (creativecommons.org/licenses/b…). Would that be ok for you?

Somehow it ended up the inspiration for the Smart Fortwo and the Honda Fit.

I'm not all that into mid-'70s compact cars, but like you, I've got a thing for the odd, unusual, and four doors. And THIS is definitely odd and unusual.

The original ForFour? It looks like Ford beat Smart to the punch.

I'd own that if I could get into it. Just to see all the "WTF" expressions people give me going down the road.

Nice, I liked it.

But it's the Vivance that's awesome!

1996 Ford Ghia Vivance concept, unlike the Manx the Vivance is called a "rolling chassis" concept, which means that it's literally only looks, no interior, engine, steering, lights or any details, it was only for publicity and was shown at auto-shows, it's surprising to know both of these concept cars weren't crushed after the show, very few concepts still exist to this day.
