Not surprisingly, yesterday’s Minx was identified pronto. This one is (hopefully) a wee bit more challenging, although some distinctive details are quite visible through the cover.
I’m going to say… a Mercury, almost assuredly a Breezeway. Probably a ’64.
Studebaker Starlite coupe?
There’s one of these a few blocks from my house. No idea what that one is either.
Until I came to CC, I had never head of the “Breezeway” this thing is a remake of the Mercury Turnpike Cruiser with that opening rear window. I guess I must just be too old for you guys who continue the breezeway name. To me it’s just a Turnpike Cruiser and that is my guess.
Maybe it’s because I was away from the civilian world in the early 60s, serving in the Marine Corps.
I’m a product of the Sixties so it’s “Breezeway” for me 😀 .
It is a second generation Thunderbird.
I’m not sure. I’m sorta leaning toward early to mid 60s Chevrolet or Pontiac.
Is it another homemade Batmobile???
A big Hooray..from me If it is 🙂
+1 or maybe 63
The headlights appear canted, so I’ll say 1958 Lincoln.
Third generation Thunderbird- “bullet bird’.
Looked several times… nothing. I think you nailed it.
I’m with the guy who said Mercury Turnpike Cruiser. What a great name for a car built in the late 50’s!
Lincoln Mark II, ’56?
Leaning towards ’64 Olds as well.
I guess that it’s a 65 Chrysler New Yorker coupe.
Looks like this beauty that I am forced to drive past every day… unfortunately she’s only a beauty from a distance.
Wow, that thing is still there. Google street view June 2014 shows it parked in nearly the same position. I’m tempted to drive past but I’ll need a reason to go that way first. I thought posting pictures was frowned upon.
Whatever it is it’s old enough to look good with whitewalls. Maybe.
Toss up between the Breezeway Mercury and ’62 Impala for me although the back of the quarter panel drops away too quickly for it to have the stubby fins of the Mercury. Sixty two Impala is my guess.
Upon closer inspection of the contours, it’s not a Starlite coupe, it’s a Starliner coupe.
How about a 1964 Cadillac Coupe de Ville.
