If I saw a pic or a clip from that I could problee tell ya
I'm pretty good with car id-ing.

Edit: I just read a very vauge discription of the car ~
Any chance the doors opened in a normal fashon, but the UPPER window
area of the door opened in a gull-wing manner???
If so, I might know what the car is.

Probably not what I thought it might be then.

The best online resource for movie cars is www.imcdb.org but they don't have anything from Under the yum yum tree. I'll look around, see what else I can find.

I was wondering the same thing. Here are some screen shots I saved:







The side windows are glass slats that are opened like those old crank-operated jalousie windows that '50s houses had in the breezeways.

I sure don't recognize this one. Does it look familiar to anyone here?

Thanks for posting the pics BluntFronts. I searched several sites, but I didn't have any luck finding pics of the car.

It's a possibility that the car will be in the credits at the end of the movie.

Lummox will let us know.

You're welcome. To me it looks like some kind of Bordinat/Ghia creation, but this car didn't turn up in any of my searches either. This is going to bug me for awhile.

I deleted the rest of the movie weeks ago, incl. the end credits, which I didn't watch.

Although most closing credits back then weren't very detailed, we can still hope for the best.
