Thought this would be an interesting thread...a "test" of sorts. Post a picture of a part of a car and we gotta name the car it came off of.

Here's the first one, I snapped this pic at work today.

I think Stoney had a thread like this going a month or two ago...

Now lets see: 4 cam & 32 valve must be a V8 or V16, but no V16s in the 80-90s that I am aware of.

I am going to go with a Lincoln ...................?

1990 ZR-1. The only corvette ever to have the DOHC/32 Valve Setup. Designed in part by Lotus. Cost new: $80,000..more than a brand new Z06 today!

This example had 684 original miles. That's right Six Hundred and Eighty Four. Everything is original, including the tires and even the OIL FILTER! This is the same customer that has a C6 ZO6 and has a C5 Z06 as her winter beater! A Z06 as her winter car!!!

Only the Toronado and Eldorado had a completely flat floor, but the shape of the dash and rear windows didn't look like they were from the Eldorado. Matter of deduction.

If you look at the guages, they have no needles, but the entire white cresent shaped backround moves. They only had that style of "needle" in 88 & 89, in '90 they had the same dashboard, but they rearranged the gauges a bit and added more typical needles.

Both pictures are from an extremely rare '68 Impala SS427 (http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Rare-427-385HP-4spd-optioned-68-Impala-Super-Sport_W0QQitemZ290057409008QQihZ019QQcategoryZ6169 QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem). Only the SS427 has the fender gills. Although technically, it is an Impala, the Impala name appears nowhere on the car. This car also has the rare guage package. In a standard '68 Impala or Caprice, the tach is where the fuel gauge normally appears.

81, MAP and Boost (second MAP) or Baro sensors right there by the air intake on the second picture. 80 has no computer control.

Also the AC compressor is wrong, might be a replacement, the 80 for sure has a thick "interia ring" on the compressor to help with the engagement of the compressor being smooth, but it saps up hp to spin. I know, I have an 80 Turbo....

We are looking at a middle 70s Sedan DeVille, of course. The Buick had worse upholstery.It's a '75. From the brochure: "Interiors continue to play a role in Sedan de Ville's popularity. For 1975, there's new seat and door panel design. Shown is Maharaja—a rich multipatterned design in Medium Jasper with bordered with Jasper leather." Also available in '75 was "Metamora—a tastefully muted plaid in Orange, Jasper or Saddle." How can anybody call orange plaid "tastefully muted" is beyond me.

Just by coincidence, I recently saw on YouTube a video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8SSg7N89Be0) of a '74 Coupe de Ville with the lovely orange plaid interior. Here's a screen capture:

But that one Lotus that had it, I liked it (it was an Early Early Esprit and is now very rare). But yes, I once almost bought a pristine 1966 Sixty-Special Fleetwood Brougham in gold with gold brocaid upholstery not unlike the above. Sigh.

How about an easy one.

Remember now, this one is a special one. One off car made by ASC for GM. Only 1 exists like it in the world, and fortuneatly it is in the hands of someone to take care of it and restore it.It's a '77 Olds Toronado XSR (http://www.toronado.org/FAQ/GenII/xsr.htm).

I'll be honest; I knew it was either a '77 or '78 Toronado, and I knew there was an X in the name, but I Googled "Toronado" and "ASC" to confirm the correct year and model designation.

right car company? Or year?

What I am thinking...

Console, not a GM style, rules out GM, steeringwheel strikes me more Fordish, but ChryCo did that too (at least not so ugly as the Ford Torino horn buttons that were 6 inches thick...). Based on script on pass door in "B", it has 2 words to name it. Rules out Pony cars like the Cuda, Charger, Challenger, Camaro, Firebird, Mustang. But size is right.

Have to look at Jetfires too. Right size, a little older. Lacks headrests, that forces it to be 70 and down.

I knew I shouldn't have given away the ASC tip.... It is the uber rare XSR with retractable T-Tops... A friend of mine had a 77 XS with the wraparound back window. Very cool. We always wanted to make convertable out of one that had the window broke ($2K+ for a replacement)...

Here's a tough one—four of them, actually. Points to whoever can name them all:

The bottom right looks like a 70-74 Challenger/Cuda. Mopar always used those odd looking seats.

Dave, I meant no disrespect towards your DeVille. My comments were directed more toward the interior designers and the styles of the 70s.

IIRC, yours is tan, so does your car have the Maharajah upholstery in Saddle? It may look better in Saddle than it does in Jasper.

Could be worse; it could have been your '74 Buick Electra.

Oh I didn't take any offense anyway, yes mine's tan with the "Maharajah" (never knew that's what it was called) in the Saddle color. It does look better than the green. But eventually the whole interior is going to be redone anyway. :thumbsup:

OK, I'll help you guys out. They're all Mopars, and you're close on the year. One of them is a 'Cuda, but it's not the one on lower right (D).

I knew I shouldn't have given away the ASC tip...I knew it was either a '77 or '78 Toronado. Just didn't know the exact subseries. VIN is 3 57M 000055, BTW.

I should have known it was a Toronado from the rear decklid, but I saw the rear glass and the bit about it being a rare car and jumped to a conclusion.

The Mopars -A and C appear to be coupes. B appears to be a sedan, except it has a lever on the seat as it to suggest it swings forward to admit rear passengers. This seems to fit with the script, two-word name or designation, suggesting a sedan, but the seat handle... D we cannot tell. I'm going to go out on a limb here and take a stab:
Top left is a Charger. Top right is a Cordoba (Corrrrinthian Leatherrrr), Bottom left is the Baracuda, and bottom right is a plymouth something-or-other.

Bottom left (C) is indeed a Barracuda. Bottom right (D) is a Plymouth something-or-other. Just what other is it? Charger and Cordoba are good guesses, but wrong.

Actually, it's not that hard. It's an International Travelall. Probably late 60s, but it could be early 70s. My grandfather had several Scouts and I got some early driving practice with one of his old ones in a field. Accidentally mowed down some corn, but he didn't mind.

international harvester was nicknamed cornbinder,I dont know where the name came from,maybe they were used in corn fields a lot?.

Red_October_7000

Int'l Harvester made a lot of tractors and farming equipment. Now the make trucks a lot, and they're not particularly good ones. Most truckers I know call them "Intertrashionals" and prefer a Mack or White Western Star. The farm implement origin is the origin of the "Cornbinder" nickname.

Perhaps (A) is a Mirada? (B) I am puzzled by -there is a subtle sporty element to the seats, but they're not sport seats by any means like the others in the series, and the script on the door pannels suggests a luxury model or trim level. This car is stumping me! My next guess at the something-or-other is a Volare.

Yes, they are all Plymouths. You're correct on the first two.
A. Beep Beep = Road Runner
B. Christine = Fury
D. Feather = Duster

Actually, A. is the standard GTX interior, but it was available for the Road Runner. B. is a Sport Fury GT and D. is a Duster 340.

In the immortal words of Frankie Valli, "So close, so close, but yet so far away..."

Definitely not a Supra. DOHC, Variable Electronic Fuel Injection, Non-interferance design, 7600 RPM redline. Optional on the car was a form of forced induction...
