So, it must be a Volvo, right? But I already have a Volvo. What the hey is it!
1975-77 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme
Downsized GM A-body. I vote 78-83 Malibu Classic or Monte Carlo.
Looks like the dowsized Caddy dash from 1977 onwards.
1977 Cutlass Supreme Brougham.
It has to be a Brougham anyway!
I want it too.
That looks like it – you can just make out the round instrument binnacle.
Ah! You rats beat me to it! I see the binnacle of the mid seventies Cutlass instruments, but the first thing that caught my eye is the fake wood strip steering wheel and the speaker grilles that screamed out “OLDSMOBILE!”
The K-Car also had a fake wood strip steering wheel, so it’s the dash that makes the difference here in what the car is. I believe that style of steering wheel was popular in many makes and models of the time period.
I remember the partially delaminated foil strip on one of these wheels slicing into my finger on a past Oldsmobile of some sort. This car has to be a real peach for the steering wheel to be in such good condition.
It’s a Jeep Cherokee! 😉
In front? yeah, a facelifted XJ.
From the shape of the speaker grille, I imagine some sort of Malaise-era Oldsmobile.
The speaker grilles on my ’72 Delta are identical.
custm cruiser or caprice classic wagon 1995ish
Having learned to drive with this exact view, with the same blue dashboard and woodgrain steering wheel, I am certain that it is a Colonnade Olds Cutlass.
Definitely some Oldsmobile around 1977. Not one of the downsized full size models however, as there’s a curve to the front on this along with the ridge by the defrost vent. Has to be a Cutlass.. but that seems too easy.
Datsun 310 GX
This car is in excellent shape with low miles, because that’s the only way these steering wheels survive completely intact.
But…look at that flat, featureless hood. To me, that rules out any 70s era car, and the hood doesn’t look that long, and that speaker grille is from the 80s A body, so will go with Cutlass Ciera Brougham, possibly with the rally gauges!!!!
What do I win?
“What do I win?” Generally speaking the winner of the daily CC Clue receives the usual coffee table. The table is a turbocharged Corvair engine topped with Gorrilla glass and signed by Richard Petty himself, we all have one or more.
However, you nominated two CC clues so I am sure you have missed out.
