Name That Vehicle



October 16, 2012

Thank you to everyone who commented on the “Name That Vehicle” photo on the HVA website and the HVA's Facebook page.

The vehicle in the photo is a 1971 Lincoln Continental Mark III. It was created by the famous Hollywood custom car designer George Barris for the 1977 horror film The Car, about a demonic vehicle with no visible driver that goes on a killing spree in a small Utah town.

And the winner of the contest is...Maureen Quinn, from Toronto, Ontario!

For guessing correctly, Maureen will receive a free HVA ballcap.

    "The car" was a Barris customized Lincoln Continental Mark III. I can't remember the year but the Movie came out the year I graduated high school which was 77. So I will guess 1976.

    That's Chuck Barris' 71 or 72 Lincoln Continental he customized for a movie. Cant' remember the movie name but I think James Brolin was in the movie.

    When I was younger I thought this car was awesome! So the movie " The Car " was out of the theaters and I watched it in the middle of the night on HBO. It was a good movie and to this day I love the car.

    I saw the movie in the theater when it came out many years ago. It is from the Movie "The Car" I remembered that James Brolin was in the movie so I did some research on James Brolin and found that the car is a modified 1971 Lincoln Continental Mark III.

    1971 Continental Mark III from the movie "The Car". This was a pretty creepy movie. One of the most haunting effects was the peircing blasts of the horn as it approached.

    The design was used on the Futurama episode "The Honking" as well.

    OK, so everyone else (almost) thinks it's a Lincoln Continental. Perhaps, but to me, it seems more like a 1974 (or so) Chevy Monte Carlo.

  77. Ed Georgie Elsberry, Missouri

    This car is a George Barris rework of a 1971 Lincoln Continental MK III which was only partially completed (exterior) for photo-shoot purposes. There were three more which were used in the movie "The Car". I don't think any of them still exist which is too bad considering the movies' significance, amongst movies, such as the fact that it opened the door for "Christine".

    I know that's from 'The Car", but wait! Was it customised by Barris or the great Dean Jeffries? Of course its a Lincoln Mark something from early 70 something, but Jeffries did lots of TV and movie car work well into the 80's.

  96. Mike Mullay Maple Valley, Washington

    From the movie "The Car" made in 1977 with James Brolin. It is a George Barris customized Lincoln Continental Mark III. 6 cars were built one steel car, and 5 others in Fiberglass. The steel car was sold sometime in the 1980's to a collector who presumably still has it. Ertl American Muscle built a 1/18 diecast of The Car several years ago.
