The A-pillar gives this mule away

The picture of this mule was sent to me by my Italian pal, Paolo. He said the Italian magazine merely labeled it, “Oldsmobile.” He asked if I knew what it was.

For a moment I thought, 1981 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme but quickly noticed the A-pillar; unmistakeable E-body, from 1979. Then everything else fell into place.

The basic but successful camouflage up front appears to be a smothering of some type of material around the forward lighting. The large opening, in front of the radiator grille, is peculiar but difficult to study due to the quality. The faux rear wrap-around window also does much to deceive.

Thanks Paolo for your contribution!
