1968 Plymouth ?

On the way to my hair appointment I spotted this rusty old car among the wild phlox.  I thought they made a pretty background for the old car.  I'm thinking it is a 1968 Plymouth.  Does anyone know for sure?


I am joining Roan for Rubbish Tuesday for the first time.

Thanks for all your kind comments on my last post.
Have a good week and I'll see you next time

What a great shot, I am not familiar with the old model cars.. Enjoy the rest of your week!

Felicia said...

Great photo. I'm not sure of the year but I'm pretty sure it's a Chevy Corvair, not a corvette but a corvair.

Liz @ Sit With Me In My Garden said...

That's definitely a Corvair! The Phlox look cute behind it!

Roan said...

Looks like my girlfriend's Chevy Corvair. We tootled all around the countryside when we were teenagers. Love it. Thank you so much for linking up.

Brian King said...

It's a great old car, but I would have no idea about the year. I'm not a car guy in that sense.

Michelle said...

That is a great shot with the old car and the pops of color from the flowers, behind.

Blackberry Lane said...

What a great car parked among the flowers!

Hey Grandma,
I'm with Roan, probably a Corvair. I had one and liked it. Ralph Nader said they were "unsafe at any speed." Shows how much he knows or maybe how much I know. Tom The Backroad Traveller

Linda @ Itsy Bits And Pieces said...

I was thinking a Corvair, too...great shot! xo

Looks like a Corvair Monza to me, although it maaaay be a Corvair Spyder. Either way, it's a priceless find and perfectly framed by the phlox!

Beth @ "E." Lizard Breath Speaks said...

Liz said...

What a great pic! I bet that car has some tales to tell.

Mari said...

I don't know cars, but it makes a really cool picture!

Sally in WA said...

Like the photo, Barb. Nice juxtaposition between the old car and the fresh flowers.

Judy said...

What a neat find, sorry I know nothing about cars.

Elaine said...

Nice photo! The flowers are a lovely contrast to the beat-up old car.

Mersad said...

Really great find. Sad to see it deteriorating like that. Someone could restore it.

What a great car and a lovely photo - I have absolutely NO idea what it is but I know a man who will - I'll show it to him later and get back to you.

Tanya Breese said...

not a clue but it makes a nice picture!

Debbie said...

ohh this is great barb, what an awesome find, loved it!!

Kaya said...

I don't know much about the cars. Unfortunately. You found a real treasure. Old, classy and still looking great. Every time I see the cars like this one I also take pictures.

Great photo and great find!

Kerin said...

Great picture!
You are right.. the old car makes a great backdrop.

Could be a Corvair. Reminds me of my older brothers old Barracuda.



Rose said...

Perfect for the meme...and the wild phlox are beautiful, too.

Alicia Mackin said...

Hmmm not sure but I bet it was beauty in it's day.

I'm not sure if that car is a Plymouth or a Chevy. It is hard to tell. Too bad it has been left for ruin. Perhaps your post will encourage someone to hunt it down and find it and give it new life. That's always good, right? lol

Yes, a box of sunshine to you, Barb! (figuratively speaking)
♥, Renae

Gail Dixon said...

I wish I could help you on the year and make of the car, but that's not my strong suit. It is a fantastic submission for Roan's meme. :)

Pamela Gordon said...

Yep, that's a Corvair. I remember them back in the day. :) Great photo Barb!

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Hi Barb, love this photo. The car is an old Covair. Late 60's.
Hugs.

This is a wonderful find!

My Little Home and Garden said...

I was just dropping by for a look at your last couple of posts. I noticed you said in the one before this that life was busy. It`s been a bit like that here too!

I hope your health concerns are under control, Barb.
