Sorry about the Clue’s intermittent appearance, but here we go again. LAx was either trying to hard to suppress his certitude about the ’65 Coronet, or…? Either way, he gets the win. Now it’s your turn.
1977 Cutlass. With accessory Mack hood ornament and brush bar?
Kinda like Deathproof meets Dukes of Hazzard.
+1 on the 76-77 Cutlass.
If that’s what I think it is, then it’s definitely a 1977 Cutlass Supreme.
No, I wasn’t certain until someone pointed out that it was specific to the 500 series of Coronet ’65… When I looked it up, after I replied all I saw was the slightly different tailight on the more basic Coronet. I think I just recalled what it was from my memory. As a 7 year old in 1966 I was obsessed with searching for the year in the taillights of every car I came across. I am rather amazed how much of that “knowledge” has stuck with me to this day. I still wish they would at least alter the taillight lenses somehow from year to year. I might be the only one, but I was also obsessed with looking into every parked car as I walked by to see if it contained my beloved Power Window Switches. Later,
as a teenager, this obsession attracted more than once, a bit of unwanted attention of the passing Patrol officers.
Me too. I think as a child those wonderful cars with their brilliant and ever-changing faces were my best friends. They’ve never left me.
Too bad the safety, efficiency and design expense of the modern unibody leaves them all looking so blandly alike. Certainly not what I dreamed the cars of The Year Two Thousand Eleven would look like. All the same, the car I’m driving now would have blown my ten-year-old mind.
PS: Nicely done on calling the ’65 Coronet from memory. That was me who called the 500. I saw your post, remembered how Mopars of that era had so many variations, got curious and got lucky with ‘1965 Coronet’ on Google.
