As we’re working on wrapping up the next issue of AUTOCULT, we’re trying to nail down some details of one of our features – that we just know you’re gonna fully dig – and we’re turning to you to see if you can shed some much needed light.
We won’t spoil it yet, but take a look at these screen grabs from a film we’re trying to identify some cars from. Now, the film, itself, is old and rare – 16mm film stock shot in the mid-Sixties – and on top of that, there’s never a full shot of the car we’re trying to identify, much less the guy in it…
What we can see of this hot rod tells us it’s a black ’26 or ’27 Model T coupe and it looks like it’s running some sort of small rear fenders, but are they stock? For some reason, they don’t look it. And does anyone recognize the CA KBL 852 plate?
Another interesting note about the car is that the interior has some Munsters Koach-style dark curtains hanging at the rear quarter windows and the custom seat backs look like red velvet-covered ovals with slits in the middle. Really unique, mid-Sixties show car-style interior that we just don’t see in other eras.
And who is this blonde guy with the flat-top-n-fenders? Anyone recognize him? We have no idea who he is or if the T is his. The only lead we’ve got is that this little film was shot in 1964 or ’65 in the San Fernando Valley – and that’s not much to go on. But if you have even an inkling about the identity of the car or the guy, drop us a note, wouldja? Really looking for some guidance here and we know this much: somebody out there must know something!
