  1. You should start here. They probably will charge you for research. https://sloanlongway.org/automotive-research/ I also may have some info, but not exactly what you want. For example, is your car 8457? 8439? 5,232 Limited 2-doors and 18,625 4-doors built. I can tell you how many by interior option if you wish. I don't have any info on two-tone numbers.
  2. Roberta, Roger (7-Litre) is the impetus for the research and Terry found the ads. We're simply coming full-circle now. 🙂 I hope you're doing well.
  3. One is Renault, the other is Chenard & Walcker. Also posting the backs. Ads are far from perfect, but if you frame them or what-not, it should improve the presentation. Can take detailed pics upon request.
  4. Cool....I'm compiling production statistics for some select options.
  5. Ha! While I have your attention, do you know what the body code 860 is? I can't find it, so I'm guessing it's a long-wheelbase chassis.
  6. I'm tabulating production information for 1964 Olds big cars and am running into some issues when it comes to engine order codes. In particular, I need to know the following: L65 L74 L76 L77 L65 seems to be a 260-horse 394. But L74 is giving me issues because for the Cutlass it's a 330/260, but based on this page, it's a 394/330: http://www.oldcarbrochures.com/static/NA/Oldsmobile/1964 Oldsmobile/1964 Oldsmobile Salesman's Specs/image6.html I am leaning towards police engines for L76 and L77, but don't know their output other than they're likely 394s. Thank you for your help!
  7. May have been ordered by an American stationed in Germany and it was routed to Vietnam?
  8. Well, it seems there are both Windsor and NYer Highlander models, and the Windsor traditionally had the 6, the NYer the 8.
  9. Your Highlander is a NYer? Do you know if it ever was available for both models at the same time, or varied over the years?
  10. It's been my understanding that T5s were built for the German market and not just any export market.
  11. Good information is a little tough to find on this, but I thought perhaps there would be someone here more familiar with this. Seems like it was somewhat of an upgrade to the New Yorker in 1940, then became a submodel for both the Windsor and New Yorker (depending on the year) thorugh 1952? Thanks!
  12. This item is a bit difficult to decipher. In total, 1,224 Wildcat Gran Sports were built. How many of them were Wildcats Custom is difficult to read, but it shows 852 were Custom hardtops.
  13. I may have some info. If you list the options (codes will be helpful too), one by one, plus the model/body code, it's possible I can help.
  14. If true, it's the CKD version of that because all the people and the printing of the item point to being Argentina-centric.
  15. I think you're looking at old ads with contemporary eyes. Anything from that era seems to be exaggerated, especially when it comes to Art Deco or streamlining.
  16. I scored this in Buenos Aires. Haven't read it yet (my visit was to improve my fluency, so it takes me some time....) but it looks like some kind of "thrill" show that may have been sponsored by Plymouth. Also picked up this gorgeous 1939 Dodge ad....anyone a Mopar expert? Was this art ever used in American ads?
  17. A friend is trying to find out how many Electras were built with the Super Wildcat engine. I know the numbers are known for Wildcats, but he's interested in Electras . . . anyone know? Thank you!
  18. Indeed that is a special car, but I am suspicious by the "police" attribution of the seller. The bucket seats for a wagon just makes it sweeter.
  19. Was looking for info on the Ambassador 4-speed and stumbled upon this. The last year for a 4-speed Chevy was 1969. I'm betting that's what you saw.
  20. Lump: I completely forgot about the LT1......I must've stopped at 1969 as I was thinking the L79 had different hp ratings in 1967-68 but I think the ones installed in Chevelles and Chevy IIs featured downgrades compared to 1966 (although strangely not available in the Chevelle that year, prob due to the introduction of the 396). But don't you think the exhaust manifolds could make a 10-hp difference? Otherwise, I am unsure if there was a Corvette with a higher hp rating for a +/- identical engine. Regarding LT1 terminology, I believe it was the ordering code (much like L79), and that engine was an option for the Corvette; in comparison, the engine was not an option for the Camaro but rather part of the Z28 package (also an ordering code).
