Mystery Car

mystery_car_23_01_15
It was on this date in 1983 that The A Team premiered, bringing into the lives of TV viewers four Vietnam vets, framed for a crime they didn’t commit, and who while on the run from the military police still had time to aid other innocent victims facing similar fates.
The fate of today’s Mystery Car solution remains in your hands, and while you probably don’t have MPs on your tail, you might want to snap it up before someone else offers the solution. Don’t be too quick however, as we want the full make and model – I’ve given up on those other bits.

    I was thinking a '62 or '63 Comet, but it's not that. I know when I hear the answer, it's going to be a "D'oh!" moment.

    I was on the right track after all. '62-'63 Comet wagon, without the optional backup lights.

      Comet wagons tail lights were horizontal not vertical in placement.

          Yes, it's rotated ~90 degrees. The key is the bumps on the chrome. Here's one that's kinda dark:

      Damned good catch! That 90 degree difference had me looking at '53-4 Buicks and Oldsmobiles for half an hour…
