Guess the interior

08-22-04, 06:21 PM
I dunno was gonna say last night but .....

86-90 Fleet Limo ? (going by the headrest and rear side door winow markings) well not exactly a limo but one of the executive type streches

But it also could be a mid 80s FWD Chrysler New Yorker Executive limo ie:
courtesy of : http://my.net-link.net/~dcline/limopres.htm very very cool site to look at

Im guessing the NewYorker because of the hardware used for the seatbelts, me' Dodge Shadow ES uses items that look simmular.

08-22-04, 07:54 PM
i keep looking at that new yorker and thinking "What if it had a 93 Daytona Iroc Turbo engine in it "...itd make a nice stang killer ....

I'll be an oddball and say a Cadillac funeral coach, make that a Broughm. :hmm:

08-22-04, 09:02 PM
it could also be this :

or this russian oddity "41041 came into production, since 1985. The V8 engine reach the "monster" displacement of 7700 cc.: the power remains the same (300 hp). ZIL in Washington, in the front of the Soviet embassy, during the Gorbachov's visit, in the 1990."

or this :

but im pretty sure its this :

im haveing too much fun with this one all above pics from previously mentioned web site

after looking at the russian car a little more im begiing to think that is what we are guessing for (note rear opera windows )

The ZIL guess is right, StoneAge. I am presantly surprised that you are even aware that they made, and make, cars in Russia.

An interesting part is that, unlike American limos, which are just strecthed and armored Fleetwoods, DeVilles and Town cars, ZIL is just that, ZIL. This is not a mass produced car, let alone some stretched version of some other car. And since those cars were produced strictly on demand, spare parts are more then a bitch to find.

ZIL is an abbreviation and stands for Zavod Imeni Lihachova, or factory of Likhachov. I don't know who he is though.

By the way, how much is 7700cc displacement in liters?

08-22-04, 09:29 PM
just take 2 decimal places off to get litres out of cc's so .....7.7 litre

a 454 chevy is 7.4 litres and a 500 caddy is 8.2

Sounds like a car i want

been trying to get more information on russian cars for months , im a closet fan for all mechanical things from cold war era russia

something scary about russian engineering :

A U.S. F-16 Fighter needs a manicured runway with no objects larger than a bee bee to take off without damage , it has been said a russian mig 21 or the like can take off in a ball bearing factory due to its varible inlets (sucks air in from above the wing at takeoff) and can take off on gravel roads !!!

Oh and by the way i knew of ZIL(lada's too) but not of this car till i stumbeld across it 30 minutes ago reasearching something else , the rear window really stuck out at me ...I beive ZIL is acutally a Truck builder who gets tapped form limos (not unlike the group who makes the chinese goverment limos)..makes sense to have truck builders make limos , even GM uses 3/4 ton truck chassis for presidentail limos (outside the 00+ presidential deville)

Not saying there stuff is beatter but it is some of the most overbuilt and over engineered stuff i have ever seen

08-22-04, 09:49 PM
ok now guess this one (i made it easy for my first shot )


08-22-04, 10:12 PM
Ahh i always loved the look of the ZIL.. just never seen the interior of one. Truely the status of the Russian government. Lada... ill take a Niva and put a GM 2.8 V6 in it!

Yes, the MiG-29 can do that and a majority of the Sukhoi fighters do too... flaps cover the the main intake and luvers on the top side of the intake suck in air from there. The landing gear, structures all made to handle rough stuff. Engines arent that reliable though (MiG-29).

Stoney, thats the Chrysler TC...

last one for me tonight , gonna do the next game off my camera .....

I will calll it "Guess this car at night"

08-22-04, 10:45 PM
Here is another shot of that car, StoneAge

08-23-04, 08:27 AM
Are there any ZILs in America?

08-23-04, 10:12 AM
