Another Classic Painting Job

The idea might be old, but the execution isn’t! Whether or not you had the privilege to see our ancient painted trucks (both fake and real ones), vans or buses – you have to admit that the illusion works. Perhaps in one of the best examples yet, company under the name of Liskey used this well known idea where they hyper realistically painted ______ car on-top of their _____ van. Now please be kind and fill the gaps with missing vehicle names and types as I was never good at recognizing them…

  1. it appears to be either a 48 to 50 gm turtle back or chrysler of the same period, with approx 8″ chop top, raised suspension, lead decks and custom paint with rear skirts and rolled rear deck. Hidden selinoid door latches, tinted glass.

    I want to say buick or oldsmobile.

  2. This looks like it belongs (or belonged) to Liskey’s printing (not painting, sorry to say). It’s not the logo on their website or on front of their building, but they do have the same logo in a different coloration on a business directory website:
    They would probably tell us the vehicle makes. The car looks like it’s from the 1940’s.

    1. Even at my age I can’t say for sure but it could be an old Hudson or even a Tucker. Just wanted to get you researching.

  3. Love these kind of illusions. These are the kind of illusions that got me hooked to the site in the first place. It must be confusing for other road users though!

  4. Forgot to fill in the blanks. As I know nothing about cars and use words like “shiney” and “lovely” to describe them. I will fill in the gaps with “A SEXY” and “CRAPPY” Although not the correct name for the cars they are fitting!

  5. I can’t fill in the blanks but I can say it gives me a great idea of what to do with my 1988 Grand Caravan. Thanx.
