I’ve no doubt our CC readers will quickly nail the make of this CC, but let’s see if anyone can spec year, and model from this wheel well closeup.
Holy overspray Batman!
That sure looks like 1970s Carmine Metalic.
All I have is that the 4 looks very Pontiac as in something with a 400 engine.
A ’68 Olds “442” because of the 442 being slightly elongated.
Secind digit looks like a round one, though…and since I don’t think Ford ever made a “460” callout, I’m going to say it’s a 400, and a Pontiac. I’ll say 1971 GP, because why not.
You’re right, I couldn’t see that without expanding the photo
No fair posting photos on the Clue, it’s more fun without 😉
1974 Chevrolet Impala.
I think 1973 AMC Javelin 401.
Fender looks more like that of a Rebel/Ambassador/Marlin, 1967-70 or so.
I can’t find where they ever put a black “401” on the fender like that
At first, I thought, 442 from Olds, but now that I’ve seen some of the comments, a car with a 409 in it, though I do think it’s a GM product of some sort, partly due to the font used for the 4.
After posting this, I decided to google 409, and up came the song from the Beach Boys, then a reference to Chevrolet, and 409, clicked on 409, and found out it’s from 1960-1965, so too early for that as the fender looks to be late 60’s, to sometime in the 70’s.
71-73 Pontiac Catalina
