ran across this old thing in a wash, i think it was a car at one time!

hilariously, the bumper sticker is holding out pretty well...

@Curly or anyone else, can you identify it from just the handle?

or maybe from these body lines?

ok, final hint is these weird steps coming off the back bumper on each side:

it can't be too awfully old, there's lots of modern plastic and wiring in that pile.

First impression when I saw this on FB was 1960's, based on the width of the car.  That door handle looks like GM to me.  The bumper steps mean it could have been a station wagon, but I never saw steps like those.

Here is a pic of a 59 Chevy wagon, step looks similar. Paint color too.

That rear bumper is reminiscent of a '63-64 Mercury's, which would also have had that style door handle, "wing-vent" in the doors, and the belt-line crease on the drivers door matches those models.    Would be cool to get a personal inspection, to see if we couldn't dig up more clues...   I'm sure that between Curly & I, we could come closer to what it used to be... ;)
