Name That Orphan: Part One

Automobile Staff

"Please, sir, I want some more!"

Out of respect for the classic car owners who planned to show at the Ypsilanti Orphan Car Show, despite a rainstorm of thunderous proportions the night before, we begin a weeklong tribute to the now-defunct brands and models.

Each day, we'll post a picture of an emblem, badge, or oddity by which to identify the vehicle. Then, after you savvy readers have a go, we'll post a larger picture and the answer.

We'll begin with a relatively easy one today.

Think it belongs to a rusty 1957 Toyopet Crown? Or a like-new Plymouth Sundance? (Really?) Let us know in comments below.

Come back at 3 p.m. EST each day this work week for a new orphan to identify.

It would be a '59 or '60. The emblems were doubled and moved to the front fenders after '58.
The picture above is of a 1958 or 1959 Edsel which was made by Ford from 58 through 60.
