What Am I? Can You Handle It?

Welcome to another edition of DT's cure for the Monday morning blues -- What Am I?  This week the What Am I feature was postponed until Tuesday because of the Memorial Day holiday, but as always, we take a random picture of a car and you get to guess what it is.


Go ahead and guess the car.  Comments below.

Great job to Tom Minch who solved the puzzle.  This door handle belongs to a 1962 Oldsmobile Starfire Convertible found here on eBay currently bidding for $21,000 with 2 days to go.  Great job!

  3. The handle and lock were GM for over a decade, but the square trim is unusual. They could have taken it off easily for the repaint!

  4. Ford Falcon or Mercury Comet, circa 1960?

    1. Funny, that was around my guess too. I was leaning towards a Fairlane from 63 or 64.

      Close?

  7. So then it's the '62 Starfire...but the reflection under the trim is misleading, on purpose?
