Nobody got the ’49 Land Cruiser. Oh well; on to the next one…
A mid 1950’s Packard or a 1958 Buick Roadmaster
On third thought, maybe a 1957 Packard which was really a tarted-up Studebaker.
1959 Rambler American
1963 Ford Galaxie, or possibly a Fairlane. Maybe a 62……….
A ’58 or ’59 Fairlane retractable hardtop convertible
Greyhound Silver side bus.
Is it that Packard coupe that was a rebadged Studebaker Hawk with the catfish mouth and padded vinyl armrests on the OUTSIDE of the doors?
Anybody seen one of those? Weird car.
’59 Ford Galaxie
Rats, Rats, Rats. I was the first one here and I knew had the right answer. I have been afflicted with Studebrain recently, and my first thought was the G T Hawk. Only Studebaker would have put an exposed screw in the C pillar trim. I had my comment done and was ready to smack the “Post” button for the win when it hit me: As an author, I have access to titles on drafts in process. If I was right and there was a G T Hawk article in draft form, well the SCANDAL of it all. Trading on my insider status for the fame, glory and fabulous cash prizes awaiting the first to guess the clue. With great sadness, I wiped out my unposted comment and closed the window. It had been a long time since I was both first and correct on the clue. But with great power comes great responsiblity. Or something like that.
You’re an honorable man, JP. My lame excuse is not seeing the exposed screw on my little smartphone screen last night. And forgetting it’s Stude week, duh.
