Mystery Car

So you’re sitting there at work, or maybe your mom’s basement and you’re asking yourself, it’s Friday, so where’s the Mystery Car post? Well wonder no more because you are reading – right now – this week’s Mystery Car postarino! For this one we went all the way to a place where they paint cars red, and demand a particular cylinder count. Oops, I’ve said too much. See if you can beat Tonyola with his nano-scond spot-ons, and if not, simply take solace in the fact that it’s Friday and that means the weekend is but mere hours away.
Okay, get busy.

    I know this one. No question about it. Should I wait? I'll just say that graverobber pulled a little stunt with the image.

      Yep, PFG got it. Graverobber horizontally flipped the picture, probably to prevent image searches. Here's the original.

        Maybe he should change up the colors too. That red and black stripe with a concealed headlight is rather distinctive.

      Damn! Beat me to it! I guess that's what I get for sleeping until 3pm…

      If I ever get it, (which I did) I figure there's not much of a chance that several other people haven't got it as well.
      You probably actually knew it's name though. I knew what it was, but the only name that came to mind was 'Mercury Maverick Comet Cyclone Torino Talladega Bobby'.

    Ford was about to introduce their version as well. The Ford Taladega King Cobra:

            Maybe a '67? No blower motor, but otherwise damned close.

            Warm, but not there.

            Is it a B-Body? maybe a '66-'67 Belvedere?

            I'm going to change that to '68-70 B-body based on the wiper motor.

            I agree with the 67-68 B body. Notice the heater core lines, and the firewall bubbles just to the lower right of the lines. (warning gratuitous hemi shot below from

            And from International Chrysler Collector Authority:

            The firewall changed between '67 and '68 (along with the outer body). Notice in your pic (and my white '67 pic) the wiper motor is pretty much parallel to the rest of the firewall, but in my '69 pic and one on the site you linked, it's on an oddly slanted plane similar to the one at the top of Jeepy's pic. My '68-'70 B-Body guess stands. It could easily be a Belvedere, Satellite, Road Runner, GTX, Coronet or Charger. No way to tell from a bare engine bay shot.

            I see exactly what your talking about. 68 to 70 it is.

    If it's an E-body, it's probably some HemiCuda "tribute" convertible.
