Whatever it is it's stuck in the Salton Sea.

Either an Impala or a Buick, hard to tell in that condition.

I'm going with '65-'68 Impala.

Disagree.

The c-pillar is too upright.

That varied through those years, the one you posted is a '68?

I think this one is earlier.

They made a coupe as well as a fastback back then.

Also Biscayne was used on lower end models.

I'm looking for a pic.

How about this.

I think this is it.

Well, we have the quarter window right for sure.

'65-'68 B body of some kind.

Electra?, LeSabre?

The chrome strip in the center of the trunk lid could be a clue.

That looks like a '67 Catalina rear bumper and quarter panel..definitely a '67 style 2dr sedan roofline. Interesting rust patterns.

You may have nailed it.

Yeah, I think Moltar is right. Sorry but I have no way to verify, since it was just under pictures of the Salton Sea and there was no indication what the car was.

Ya, I think so..definitely not a '65-68 Chevy rear bumper shape, or '65-66 Pontiac rear bumper shape. I believe '67 was the last year for the Catalina 2dr sedan. I'm pretty Buick and Olds quit their B-body 2dr sedans after '61 or '62.

I don't recall ever seeing a '67 Catalina 2dr sedan in real life or a magazine..pretty obscure body style.

Its the only thing we have found with the body crease ending in the right place at the bumper.

Has to be.
