Which car is this? The 'Guess the car" thread

Recommended Posts

It happens dear. Don't worry.

By the way, `Pontiac' is indicated on the grill (driver side) and `Catalina' is indicated on the

the back of the front wheel on the driver's side.

Forgetting is one thing. Not observing is the other.

Just kidding dear.

What you also see are the numbers

400

433

on that very grill...

May be engine options or trim levels!

I'd seen both the observations & can read the 'Pontiac' badge, but it's impossible to read `Catalina'!

@ MODS please pin this thread, so we'll not need to create a new thread for every unidentified car!

I believe that's the engine size. In America they measure engine capacity in cubic inches rather than cubic centimetres or litres. Therefore 400 cubic inches corresponds to 6,555cc - a 6.6-litre V8.

To me the most iconic number is the Ford 427 - put in their bigger muscle cars and the famous Shelby Cobra - seven litres! Phwoar!

yes it is the Pontiac Catalina and the number on the grill suggests the engine cylinder size.

True definition for the numbers on the grille.
