YAK Car Pic of the Day

It appears that what we have here is a 1972 Chevelle SS (which was an option package, not a separate model). Appears, I say, but I wouldn’t bet the house on it. The SS came with a domed hood (check) with lock-down pins (nope); black grille (check) with the SS emblem in the center (nope); left-hand remote-control mirror (nope); SS front fender emblem (nope, that’s a 350 badge we see here); and 15 x 7 Sport Wheels (one more nope, but wheels are often changed over the years). I’m guessing it’s a de-badged Malibu with an SS/Heavy Chevy hood, and rims I’ve seen on many-a 1971 Monte Carlo. Still nice though. Saw it yesterday in Wheatfield.
