Some pictures-topless-look at your own discretion

Post by steve_car » Tue May 14, 2019 11:57 am

I bought these 8 X 10 pictures on Ebay recently, showing a 66-67 Roadster. They were advertised as promotional photos from the personal collection of a former Datsun Manager.
I have blocked out portions that may be offensive to people.
I am puzzled by the hubcaps. You would think that they would be stock if these are really Datsun authorized.
Anyway, here they are:

Those wheel covers must be to help make the cars more appealing to the British car enthusiasts, LOL.

I would suspect that the hubcaps are an aftermarket part as we know that we have not seen them offered by the factory-- probably a dealer installed item-- they are great photos though! (and now we know how the dents got into the fenders!)

Very nice. I would have bought those. The hubcaps look like GM hubcaps. I had a set in the trunk of a parts car. If you make copies, let me know

I can post the unedited pictures if one of the moderators says it is ok. I just don't know where to draw the line.

My first thought was...That's an odd place to place a "paint swatch" sample.

I would love to have high res scans of these unedited of course. I love stuff in historical context and being a former semi pro photog it's always interesting to me what "marketing" material hits the cutting room floor. I have a trove of stuff shot by a local photographer who worked for a well known greeting card company including proofs for a weird calendar they did with women posing in risque (see semi, fully n*de) all over town.

My Fairlady posed topless for the calendar a couple of years ago.....don't see a problem with it.

The strange thing is that this car has a top on.

Really dig the building. Actually, really dig it all. and I am with Michael, I think we need the unedited photos for historical perspective..
