What kind of car is this?



Anybody have any idea what kind of car this is? I love the size of the wheels in proportion to the car itself.

Definitely not a Toronado but it is an Oldsmobile. Im leaning towards Delta royale. Even more impressive is the rear bumper made out of a 2x4!!!

Because we all know "442" lost its true meaning in 1968.

Dual exhaust. In 68 they changed it to 400/4 barrel/ 2 exhaust. A real 442 has a shift tranny as should any muscle car of that era.

Oops. Sorry, in 68 they began putting slushbox trannys in them. This is why they changed to 400/4barrel/ 2 exhaust.

Come on, give credit where credit is due. Those are clearly 2x6's making up his/her rear bumper. Much more stout than your ordinary 2x4 construction.

And on closer observation they went all out and used green treated lumber. Now that is true dedication. You don't see that kind of craftsmanship anymore now everything on cars is plastic.
