Ok I give up, and that doesnt happen very often. I still say the frame, suspension and color on the firewall look very GM in nature. The firewall is very corvette "ish" but the A arms don't look like any GM pieces I have ever seen. The color on the firewall is very close to GM butternut yellow, but I don't think it wa available in the 60-64 range I am thinking this car is from. Plus google called and told me I had all of their servers tied up,to get off there site because other people needed to search for stuff too...........I'm with Jon on this one.....Brian I hate you lol

Obviously this is a "one of " part. Some guy sitting in a garage in Minnesota in the winter got a deluxe ShopSmith for Christmas and said to himself, " Wouldn't it be nice if the old Maxwell had power steering?"
Your a mean man Mr. Martin.

The fittings aren't right for a GM product. They look more like something Ford would use, but the control arms aren't Ford either. The retention clip on the inner fender looks FoMoCo. Absolutely it is a Divco B200 Milk Truck. Or Poncho Villa's Battle Wagon "Esmeralda"
Haw ! didn't think I'd get it did you!

You know what, I have no idea if it's one year only, I don't know the car very well that I got this photo from, it's my bosses. Hell, if anyone gets close I am going to have to call him to ask clarify the exact year.

The funny part is I have tried to google it and can't find another one like it! That's pretty funny huh, I can't cheat on my own question!

Nope, not a scout.

I just can't get away from this one....is the steering box aluminum or just looks like it? It has so many things that just look strange.....or maybe I just don't recognize them? I must admit most of the cars/questions on here were probably restored twice before I was born

Ahhhhhh, very interesting observation. And very important point that I hadn't even thought of.

The exhaust manifold dump would have to be angled outward also by the looks of the exhaust pipe unless it got bent during the engine removal because the flange appears solid. And as for what I can find it has to be early 60's because according to my searches, Chrylser imeprial was the first american production car to use power steering in 58 and this is not a chrysler. Corvette didn't start offering power steering until 63? maybe 64 correct I know one of you knows the correct year. The only american car I know of using an aluminum box was the corvair, but there were apparently others because that is definitely NOT a corvair lol

Ok so far we have figured out it is an American made car, more comon than a studebaker, it has an aluminum steering box, weird looking (light weight?) upper control arms, a funky angled back firewall, power steering, floor shift, and a grommet on the firewall that we can't place and it almost has to be early 60's.......sure sounds like a Fordevroletoldsmobiliac to me
