I know this isn't the whole answer but I don't know the "series" name. I am thinking 59 Chrysler.

Longest car

And what is REALLY annoying is that I saw the answer to this on another site a few months ago - I seem to recall that it showed a pic of something like a Packard of a limited production series - somewhere in the 1939 area for vintage. If I recall, there was a certain model and the the "super" version of that model that was 18 inches longer, making it the record holder for length.

However, it has been a long day and whatever remains of the ol' gray matter may not be functioning well.....

car length

I am going to go with the 58-60 Lincoln as this was quoted in Newsweek over
the summer as the longest American Production car. (not truck) Joe G has the floor.
By the way they are also unibody construction.
Went to a car show with my GF and her father with his 46 continental conv
and their 60 Lincoln conv. A man pulled up next to the 60 with his 64 Caddy
and could not believe how much longer the Mark 111 was. Her father bought
the car in 1963, it was their family car until the late 70's. Jim

My apologies, didn't pay attention that it had to be a car.

Hey guys, I know that this is off thread but we have had a lot of fun at this thread over in the body section. Check it out: Help me identify hood ornament? One of you might even know what it is. Oh and I hope that no one gets angry for me cross threading behind their back (Brian, JoeG) but these last few questions have been tough.

I don't know what the heck happened here but how can you tell if a 66 Mustang has a six or a V8 in it without opening the hood and if it has no emblems or chrome trim on it?
