Bam! Tom Klockau got the XR4Ti right off the bat. Now, the picture is bigger but maybe not as distinctive.
I’m thinking ‘fuselage’ Chrysler product…1970 Imperial?
1970 Imperial is too new; the chrome looks like its a 1966 but the yellow turn lens doesn’t jive.
When I was a kid I could tell you every single year of just about every American car, thanks to those front grille identification pictures that the MOTOR manuals had in them. Too bad they don’t do that any more (not that it would help much, when you have to give your VIN often times just to get the correct parts anymore).
Or worse some one had to identify the aircon compressor in my Peugeot just to get the right belt. The vin didnt guess right! and no I cant fathom that clue yet
On my dad’s 1950 Packard, you had to specify the manufacturer and part number of the distributor to get points. Packard, already a fairly small outfit, probably took hind tit in the booming postwar market to get parts.
Dodge RAM Van (full size, not mini)
It reminds me so much of the side marker off of a `80-85 Delta/`80-`84 Regency.
Ooh ooh, I know what it is now (but not what car it is from) – It’s a cornering lamp! Standard on most luxury cars, optional on some mid-line models like our 1971 LTD which had them (they are great when you are trying to find that driveway out in the sticks at night).
RedmondJP is right. A ’76 Fleetwood Googled up on “cornering lamp” and it looks pretty darned close. If that’s right he deserves the credit. I was looking at taillights. (Jordan’s close too.)
Thinking citroen, probably DS but could be SM.
Oh well, so close, yet so far! I hardly remember seeing any of these – most people opted for an optioned-up LTD which was basically the same car.
