Time for a special Bonus Clue, for an extra CC to run tomorrow. You can probably guess the era of tomorrow’s CC, but that alone will not get you the win.
LTD Landau/Crown Vic, 1979-1980.
I’m getting a C-body Buick vibe… early-80s Park Avenue or Electra.
Judging from the grain of the top, I’m going to say 76.
It is, I can spot that Tuxedo grain vinyl a mile away… Actually formally called “CADILLAC SMALL TUXEDO GRAIN”
76-79 Seville used Tuxedo. 1980-on Cadillacs predominately used Elk which became the standard for most GM cars at that time. Especially for heavily padded versions.
An additional factoid, Sevilles were all vinyl roofed in the early days because the unique for Seville cap on the X platform covered the welding. Later, they were able to engineer a smooth transition for the cap allowing the offering of a non vinyl model.
I had my handy-dandy American vinyl top spotters guide available.
79-82 Dodge St. Regis or Chrysler Newport, maybe a Gran Fury.
1974-75 Chrysler 4-door sedan, possibly a New Yorker.
My first reaction was Seville, but that’s already taken, so I’ll guess ’77 Sedan de Ville.
78 Seville in Waxberry Yellow.
Only problem is, PN already did a write up on a 76 (I think it was a 76). Maybe this ones a diesel.
1980 Buick Century sedan
I’m going to take a wild guess & say a late ’70s Checker made for civilian use.
I’m getting a GM vibe, close to a 75-79 Seville.
