:??: What kind of ideas do you have, guys? It's for 100% sure an American car, to identify by a lot of typical American details, which were uncommon in Europe.
For example: diarrhoea-coloured dashboard, steering wheel and interior, position of dashboard and steering wheel, style and shape of seats and headrests, vinyl-roof for a non-early-70ies-car, the clunky chrome-mirror, etc.

I guess, it's a two-door Lincoln or US-Ford.

Nothing European or upper-crust about this car. But unlike ingo, I'm leaning towards something Chrysler-ish(although the thumbnail may change my mind).

Body line, mirror, as well as interior all match Camargue to me

Odd exterior stlying. Was this considered ugly by Rolls enthusiasts?

:wow: Indeed a Rolls. I haven't expected, that European companies can follow the American taste so abulic and disorientated. :/

@jettalover: it was a kotow for the American market...

The Camargue is one of those cars that actually doesn't always photograph well, and it is very colour-sensitive, too.

Definitely a Camargue. This must be the one!

It's a 1986 Rolls-Royce Camargue.

By the way... It's for sale at this moment :/

So it's just plain ugly in normal jargon.

Ignition on the left of steering wheel. Was that common on old RRs?

Unusual looking, not ugly IMHO.

@ dsl, no I didn't mean "just plain ugly" and meant what I said. The Camargue is a car not understood by most, and in fact, in certain colours comes across very well, but moreso "in the flesh" rather than in moving or still photography.

:??: The basic problem with the Camargue is that Pininfarina did their usual trick of recycling their styling themes whenever they struck gold with an original - in this case the Fiat 130 Coupe - and then tried to repeat the recipe here. But the proportions lost their integrity when enlarged to RR dimensions, the RR grille does not fit the bodylines, and svelte elegance became slab-sided and bloated. My guess is that "most" understand the Camargue's styling as a bad cover version - to use a musical analogy - from a much better original.

Is it just me or is the Camargue the inspiration for Rolls' current range of nouvelle riche vulgarities?

Although it's rather bearable than their ugly today's chunks, it was indeed a step away from the classic style-lines.
