Tricky. This one could be tricky…
I honestly have no idea. Given the color silver with red paint stripe, I’m going to say something from the late-70s to early-90s. Something Lincoln, maybe?
80’s vintage Gran Fury or Diplomat
That is a 100% GM pinstripe, and so is the chrome rocker panel trim.
Not enough side view mirror image to tell if it is a Cadillac chrome traditional mirror or a sleek aero (Euro) mirror that was used on most GM mid sizers by the late 80’s. So, going to take a big chance and say it’s the traditonal Cad mirror with the optional thermometer we’re looking at.
’85 Eldo (not Biarritz)
I agree on the pinstripe being GM, but I don’t see chrome. Must be something with an incredibly low belt-line to have pinstriping that low.
Chrysler Fifth Avenue.
First generation Mercury Cougar.
1985 Caprice Classic.
Hmmm, I’m beginning to think I mistook a reflection for a character line…
1977-90 two door Cadillac B body
80s GM B-body wagon tailgate?
Possibly a late 70’s Buick Regal, or 79 or 80’s Toronado. Most of GM’s cars seem to have some sort of trim on the doors but this one does not. Pin stripes are not something from the 60’s and are gone in the 90’s I think.
That’s fifty shades of gray right there…
Playboy Bunnymobile? Dodge Dildo? Toyota XXX Starlet?
The chrome rocker panel does have a ’77-92 B or C body look, but that crinkle in the door shape screams FoMoCo. The sides of the Bs and Cs come down flat to the chrome rocker. The Box Panthers have that crinkle but also wider strips of chrome.
’86 Grand Marquis…with ’84 Park Avenue chrome rocker panel strip?
Just kidding I give up.
Lesser spotted grebe!
The pinstripe makes me think GM, but that ridge on the top is telling me Mopar M-body. Fifth Avenue would be too obvious, I’m going to go with Diplomat?
Im taking a shot in the dark and saying 1978-79 Buick Electra
Just finished photographing my ’77 for a planned submission. If an Electra I think there’d be.a chrome edge guard.
88 Chrysler Fifth Ave?
busted, the solution was already posted when you guessed this correct response – unfair
Yeah, folks do that a lot. Apparently they find it amusing…
they’ve even been credited with correct guesses! kinda sad…
