Generic GM



"In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." (1987) -- Carl Sagan

Has a hood with a big bulge also. Was that a GM option?

My guess is it would have an engine swap.

That’s a generic aftermarket cowl hood, aka a reverse hood scoop meant to scavenge trapped air at the base of the windshield. 99.999% of the time the hood scoop doesn’t exist (is blocked off) just a cosmetic style unless you really needed the extra height because of a tall racing intake. Much easier to install a cheap hood than to install actual horsepower.

Interesting. I always thought those were to let air out, not in.

Signal lights on the front indicate it is probably a 79. I owned a 78 and that is not a 78.

I was also gonna guess '79 Monte. I love car trivia!

Does bear a little resemblance to Fords of the period with those fat front turn signal lights, though. Monte Granada indeed.
