I love it when in animated TV shows there is a touch of realism in the cars, when you can recognize what they are supposed to be. So when I spied this K car, I recognized it immediately as Peggy Hill’s car from King of the Hill. It seemed somehow fitting that Peggy would drive a Lee Iacocca special. It seemed right for the Hills’ socioeconomic class.
Except that when I did some noodling around the Internet for details, I found out that in Season 2, Episode 8, “The Son That Got Away,” Hank called Peggy’s car a Buick. Meaning that this is Peggy’s car, an early-mid-80s RWD A body.
Let’s look at Peggy’s actual car, shall we? I never looked below that perfectly square and non-A-body-like roof; it screams K car to me. But below the shoulderline, the deck slope, those wheel arches, and that rear tail light clearly say Century/Regal sedan. There’s even a mark on the fender ahead of the tail light where the Century or Regal badge would go.
