Mystery Car

Kamil Kaluski July 9, 2018 Mystery Car 15 Comments

This Mystery Car thing isn’t easy. If I put up something that’s almost common someone will say “I remember when Mystery Car was good…” Put up something obscure and someone will say “I’m not even trying anymore! I can’t identify car with a total production of three by its gas cap!” And then, three minutes later, someone not only identifies the car but says who owns it, where it is currently located, and what TV show it made an appearance at.

Without further bitching on my part, please identify today’s mystery car. Make and model, please. I’ll even give a hint – despite the panel gaps and the cool door handles, this is not a Tesla. Click below to see what last week’s Mystery Car was and congratulate caltemus, as he is now The Person of the Moment!!

  • 1929 Willys Knight .

      I didn’t think of prewar cars with centrally opening doors, if that is the right term.

      But with the exposed screw heads I’m thinking a commercial vehicle.

    Last week’s was another Allard? We had an Allard for the Mystery Car on August 7, 2015.

    • You people still don’t get it. It’s the gift that keeps on giving. Expect more Allard!

        But at the current rate/trend that won’t be until 2024?

        Any inside scoop on when we can expect more Allard? I’d like the unfair advantage when next an Allard shows up on Mystery Car.

    • To be fair, this time around it was a different Allard.

        Aren’t all Allards different?

        • The two previous Allards were actually the same Allard twice, which I suppose is admittedly different.

  • The 1933 and 1934 Packards use the same door handles, so that’s not much help, but the only photo I can find of one in this color combination is this 1934 Model 1104:

      Hah! I knew it was a 30’s Packard right away, and started searching for a picture with this color combination, but then other tasks got in the way.

  • A brief tour of Google confirms that it’s definitely not a vintage refrigerator.

      I should take a picture of the 1953 International Harvester fridge I have on my garage for one.

    1959 Ford Thames Dormobile. Yes, that is a wild guess.
