I think this vehicle inspired all the boxiness you see in cars today.  Ugly is not the right word for it.

It looks like it should have the word "generic" on it somewhere.

The power bulge is because the designers forgot the high single barrel when they put that awesome nose down slope in the hood.

What bothers me about this one is that is looks like a four door that somebody at the factory for got to cut out the rear doors. Weird looking car.

Looks like I stumped you guys with this one! Only five of you got it right. The car is an Autocars Carmel from Israel. I'm not sure of the exact model year because info on this car is hard to fond, and the info I did find was contradictory. If you guessed anywhere from 1960 to 1968, you got credit (I think it's a 1967 model).
