If anybody needs any bullet-nose Stude parts, I found this old carcass while hiking in the woods this past Saturday...
I think the Judge was essentially a budget GTO, designed to compete with low-priced musclecars like the Plymouth RoadRunner and Dodge Coronet SuperBee, models that were cheaper than the likes of the Plymouth GTX or Dodge Coronet R/T. However, the Judge was still a real musclecar.
In contrast, the "Heavy Chevy" was just a trim package for the Chevelle/Malibu. They took a few SS pieces and threw them on, gave it standard rally wheels, some blackout trim, and decals. But you still had to separately order the equipment to make it go fast (quicker axles, muscular engines, etc).
Saw one of these for the first time. It's called an "Earth Roamer" --seems to be Ford diesel powered. Photo is distorted--it's not THAT big. Obviously a Survivalist toy.I always thought those class-C mini-motorhomes based off of pickup trucks, rather than van cabs, were pretty cool. They were always less common, most likely because a van front clip is shorter than a pickup front clip, plus it's easier to move from the cab to the living quarters in a van. But, I thought the pickups had better proportioning.
Seems like this generation was somewhat common...
It wouldn't be my first choice, but that Grand Prix does wear it well. I think the white top and Rally wheels, and pinstripes help set it off. Curbside Classics is showing a '73 LeSabre here, and it looks to be that color.
Maybe Chevy could have made the buttons on the radio spell out "Impala", but for only the Impala? And either just "Chevy" or nothing at all for the lesser models. That could've given a bit more catchet to the Impala. Of course, you'd still have to figure out what to do with the Corvette radio. "Vette" would fit, but like "Chevy", it's also a nickname, rather than a proper name.
If my Grandmother's '85 LeSabre had buttons like that, it would've only spelled out "BUIC"
