I don’t know how he did it, but John Loveless correctly identified the Chevy C20 pickup. Well done! Tomorrow’s Curbside Classic is waiting in the wings, but first we need somebody to identify it. Does anybody recognize this one?
GM, Cadillac or maybe Bonneville, early 80s
I’m going with 1971-75 Cadillac Fleetwood.
1977-80 full-sized Buick without its hood ornament.
That looks more like a 1964-ish Olds 98 to me
1974-76 Cadillac Calais or Deville Coupe
’63 Olds F-85
’82-’84 Cadillac Sedan de Ville.
74-76 Fleet. Ruling out 71-73 because leading edge of front end looks more squared off.
Possibly a CDV because of that huge opera window that’s almost as big as a door, but look at the big B-pillar, which was back when the name Fleetwood actually meant something…
PS: where da hood ornament at?
Interestingly enough, for Cadillac hood ornaments were optional during that period.
Yes, you are right. I remember when my dad bought his 75 SDV, he went back to the dealer to get one put on. And there were at least a couple of styles to choose from.
It would depend on if one chose a d’Elegance Package or a DeVille Cabriolet roof option, most standard DeVilles had the V and crest, Fleetwood Broughams has the wreath and crest, but if you were to get a d’Elegance option, you would get a stand up wreath on a deVille and a stand up wreath and crest on a Fleetwood. Eldorados had a stand up wreath and crest pretty much from 71 and up, Sevilles too. After the standard Cadillac was downsized in 1977, all Cadillacs has stand up hood ornaments.
