It will help to know your door handles with this Clue!
It looks late 60’s Ford to me.
That’s a 60’s GM upper line door handle, I’m almost 99% sure. Cadillac, a cheapie 1960 Series 62.
1959-60 GM car, I think Carmine is right about a 1960 Series 62.
I’ll go with the GM trend and say that it’s an Oldsmobile 98.
It is a Cadillac. The thin pleats of the cloth seem early 60’s. I do not recognize the chrome on the center pillar, so this could be just another WAG.
I agree with Carmine–my folks’ 1964 Super 88 had the door handle, but not the high, plush carpeting, nor the broadcloth-looking upholstery. Also looks like a hardtop pillar. So Cadillac makes sense.
Well the general era can come right from the fact that there is obviously an ashtray for nearly every occupant of this car. 😉
gonna call it a 1965 or 66 Cadillac Calais 4-door hardtop – Yeah, its the renamed for ’65 Series 62. It looks a few years newer than a 1960 to me…
I think the Calais had a full armrests, even in the back, by 1965.
I’m guessing a Cadillac from the mid ’60s. As close as I can get.
Definate GM product, we had that style of door handle on Holdens from 1963.
I’ve always liked the concept- much more stylish than an exposed handle.
The door handles of many GM cars were like that as late as 1967 but I don’t think post-1960 cars had that chrome trim around the ashtray.
Here’s a 1960 Cadillac series 62.
A better view at the bright trim behind the handle on the front door panel of a two-door 1960 Series 62. The 4-doors have something similar at the rear.
It is a ’61 Electra 225. I am looking at the fabric.
