Looking at it, I think I see plug wires coming from the front of the engine, I'm thinking Mopar from the way the duel blowers look set up, just my humble opinion.

It's just a pic I found on the web. But it interested me for some reason. I know old Buicks had the distributor at the front like that too. Look where the master cyl. is though. Maybe it's an Aussie.

the "strut towers" are a fairly unique deal ....along with what looks like a long nose

GM and chrysler i dont think ran cars with that setup in the 70s

got a good feeling its a aussie falcon from the 70s ....

WOW, Stoney. You ARE good.

I was guessing Ford, but I was thinking it was a mid-60's customization.

It's funny that I read this post when I did. I replied, went to Walmart, and what do I see parked in front, a Ford Ranchero in the same baby blue. The resemblence b/w the two is amazing.

I had a '64 Ranchero, and the position of the shock towers is very similar to that picture. But there were too many other differences for me to make that easy guess. I couldn't find any pictures on eBay that matched that picture so I figured I was WAY off.
