Maybe we shouldn’t bother with clues during a theme week? It does rather narrow things down quite a bit. But then you seem to guess pretty much everything we put up. Don Williamson guessed the Nash hood ornament, narrowing it down to “a 1952-1955 full size Nash”. Close enough.

’65 or ’66 Marlin. I don’t think this emblem was used on the ’67.
Marlin. Can’t wait to see the whole car.
A previously missing portion of the Antikythera mechanism!
A 1965 Rambler Marlin in Lancelot Turquoise. Most likely with a black top/trunk.
65 or 66 Marlin. My first car in 1969. My license was hours old, I was 16 and it had a 2 day old white over blue paint job. Plus a Rambler 327, 4 bbl, 3 speed torque flight (I think) with 270 horses getting to the ground on 14X7 bias ply tires that kept wearing out for some reason. Perfect first car for a 16 year old male, it was a tank, took all the abuse I could think of and the worst failure was a u joint that snapped when I dropped it in drive at
3, 000 rpm.
PS. This emblem is mounted on the center of the trunk lid. To my eyes it looked like a 67 Dodge Charger, even had power discs up front and
the A/C, i mean weather eye, had the desert only position near the ash receiver on the engine turned dashboard panel. Of course the power steering removed any road feedback.
