Mystery Car – Weekend Edition Part Two

Ok ass-munches, you have proved that you can guess anything and everything.  You are unstumpable, we get it.  So i’m going to toss this* out there in hopes that perhaps you are humbled and beg for mercy.  Yeah ima jerk like that, but can you really blame me?  If anyone guesses the correct make/model +/- 3 years I will personally send you some autographed and/or stained Hooniverse schwag.
And to be completely fair, I have entrusted the real answer with Ambersand.  Feel free to bribe her.
*not drawn to scale.  or color.  or shape… but they are all close enough.

      Funny. I was just googling 1980 caprices to see if that was a reasonable guess.

    It's a 1961 Renault Dauphine, obviously.

      Why didn't I get here 20 minutes ago!! That is the same one I was thinking of!

      A free ride in that weird bastard. If you can figure out which end is the front!

      1. tonyola Avatar

        That was the idea behind the car – have as many interchangeable parts as possible – hood/trunk, bumpers, doors, fenders, glass, etc.

      My eternal respect.. I've never heard of this car.

    1975 Holden Torana with a Gurney bubble.

    1. crinklesmith Avatar

      Seconded, and with the cowl hood and ducktail (Gurney flap?) spoiler, it's obviously a SL/R model.

    Based on design of what I think is rear wheel opening (the one next to bigger wheel, on the left) which seems to be by Marcello Gandini, I say right answer is 1996 Maserati Quattroporte IV, with custom non-metallic color and shaved…everything.

    1. mdharrell Avatar

      Continuing my efforts to tie everything back to my own damned car, Robert Cumberford wrote of the KV:
      "The front wheelhouse opening suggests the rear shapes favored by Marcello Gandini, minus all artfulness or style, of course."
      I'd guess KV for this mystery car, but the Mini 1 lacks a rear wheel arch. And curved surfaces.

    oddly enough, you guys aren't that far off. I will give a clue, think 80's.

      My first thought was '77 Lesabre, but a mid-80s Lesabre isn't too different…

    'not drawn to scale. or color. or shape… but they are all close enough.'
    Well, then, based on the scale, color, and shape, I've got to go with this:

      Needs moar Green Giant endorsements.

  11. longrooffan Avatar

    Since nibbles ate my endorsement of the 66 AMC by tonyola, I'm gonna go with a 1984 Lincoln Continental four door sedan..

    And I am pretty sure it is diesel powered.

    Bringing up a old meme, it's a DAF 33 (much better than FAF)

    1. Lotte Avatar

      Speaking of memes, I think this edition of Mystery Car is probably the best chance that a certain Japanese sports car would actually be the correct answer.

    2. Alff Avatar

      Ah, but I beg to differ, my friend…

    1976 AMC Pacer obviously!

    Sorry for the pitiful first guess.

    80's, front window slants at the same angle as the rear quarter ones, green…I swear this car was posted about yesterday…

    1970 Chrysler Newport 4-door sedan. Lots of overhang and you can clearly see the B-pillar so that rules out 2dr or 4dr HT.

      With the Torsion Quiet Ride. I'm sold. Gimme one. Hey, I've wrenched on one of these, put in a new fuel pump on the 440. Fun Fact: Lee Marvin drove a coupe version of this very car. Nothing wrong with that.

      I need to pay more attention on the weekends. It seems that is the best chance to actually have a correct answer.

    Ok, so the real answer I was looking for was 88 Chrysler New Yorker. No really. It's funny that pretty much all of the guesses more or less fit the general description. Congrats to all, you all win 3 free internetz!

    1. Alff Avatar

      If only that were a Chrysler factory color.

        yeah, they probably woulda had a chance at not sucking. Props to ms paint for having the exact color I had envisioned in my head though.

      Wrong. It's a Reliant sedan. You can tell from the tire aspect ratios, confirmed by the ASTM numbers on the sidewalls. And the shoulder belt harness mount locations.

        Jo Schmo

        how dare you waltz on in here and question my mystery car and…. oh hmmm you have good point, maybe I was actually wrong…

        1. tonyola Avatar

          I thought this was too sleek to be a K-car. A Reliant would look like this.

            This was my Brian's first car – well, his was maroon, but otherwise that's how he remembers it.

        2. pj134 Avatar

          I was going to guess 'cuda with modifications to make it a 4 door, and as it turns out they are both Chrysler E Bodies.

    3. CptSevere Avatar

      Dammit. I got here too late. It looks like the '84 Chevy Impala I used to drive for City Cab, but their cars are painted white. I figured the color pictured was there to throw me off.

      So, I was wondering…. how the hell do you get a 1988 Chrysler New Yorker from that drawing of yours? Clearly the rear roof angle isn't even close…..

    How about next time we do it with no hints or pics, 20 questions style?
    As in "I'm thinking of a car". Ok "car" would be a hint but you have to start somewhere.

    1. mdharrell Avatar

      Is it a 1962 Fairthorpe Electron Minor?

      1. B72 Avatar

        You guys are good! How did you do that?

  28. Spencedaddy Avatar

    color is all wrong…but could it be a GT40?

  29. muthalovin Avatar

    Man, I need to get some kind if pager for Mystery Cars.
    If Hooniverse really wants to stick it to me, do an NSX as a mystery car on the weekend.
