Roger 628 jumped right out front with the correct answer to Sunday afternoon’s Clue for the ’66 Lincoln.
Today might see another of our astute readers grab this Clue by the throat and subdue it. Are you that person? Then again, maybe not.
1963 Mercury Comet?
It looks like a ’59 Chevy to me.
pontiac tempest 61-62
2nd generation Chevrolet Corvair (65 and out)
That pattern between the headlights screams both ’59 full-size Chev and gen1/2 Corvair, but as to which, I have no idea!
Well, it appears to be metallic aqua–a sure-fire draw to our friend JP! 🙂
Yes Tom, I have decided to restrict my CC contributions to turquoise cars. Short term, I may have to accept my share of white ones until we find someone to replace Perry. 🙂
2nd gen Corvair.
Not sure what the car is, but it’s a Guide brand light. That probably means GM something.
It is a 1963 Corvair and the color is Azure Aqua.
64 full size Ford. I’m thinking Galaxie.
First generation Corvair. Looks like the same color as my ’64. I would ask how the devil did you get in my garage, but I’m pretty sure I don’t have T-3 low beams anymore.
1965-67 Corvair. I think the 68’s had vertical lines within the T-3 triangle logo after that year.
Yeh, ’65+ corvair.
Ok I’ll guess early 60s’ Chevy 2, Nova?
I think that is a 1965 Corvair, perhaps a Monza. The earlier ’63 style would have had a turn signal between the headlights and bumper; this one does not.
Another vote for the 1963 Corvair. I seem to recall that the black paint between the headlight ribs went with that year.
I don’t know, but those old G.M. Guide T-3 sealed beams lasted for years and years.
I never even looked closely at the headlights. I guess the Guide sealed beams tell us just how original this car really is. Guide Lamp was right up the road in Anderson, Indiana, one of quite a few GM facilities in the area that have been shuttered over the last 20 years.
Here’s your answer. Generation 2 corvair, 🙂
For once , I knew the answer at a glance .
Sadly , so did everyone else .
I like these but I rarely have any real idea what the clue photo is .
