    a good "deal" would be about $100.00

    I'm thinking Olds with thermostat housing on top.

    Hey Gary,
    Nice photo of one of the most unusual Chevy sedans made. It was a cool cruiser in our neighborhood as the windows rolled down and the opening was amazingly huge. Our cousins had it for their primary car and even though it was a family vehicle, it was still a cool cruiser. 4 doors, 4 people, 4 windows down, one big open air hardtop were all that was necessary to have a great time cruising. We were amazed how lower center post kept the doors attached. But, it was a 4 door hardtop built for fancy cruising.

    I can't figure out what that exhaust contraption does between the exhaust ports and where the headers bolt on...

    Hey GK,
    They might be tube extenders for the curved headers to clear the steering box. That would allow the headers to stay in their smooth design shape and not have those crazy loops to clear the box. Just my $.02 idea.

    Jnaki
    The headers are smooth, uniform, and look great on this car. The worker seems to have other problems in the photo.

    There's a light mounted on the roof, too. Either some sort of local police or a fire department officer (chief, ast. chief, etc.)
