This looks like a Second Gen Trans Am(1970-81). The tyres are odd. IMHO these are mismatched for the car (sorry Ishan for treading on your turf ). Shes shod with Pirelli Scorpions, essentially only a SUV tyre. Thats why you see the huge profiles. Also they look too big for the car due to their high profiles.
I agree with Scooby on the dual exhaust bit. It never came with dual exhausts, so obviously its an aftermarket job
And No its not Jackie's car as his cars got a T-Top.
Someones gotta fix this thing, put the right rims and tyres (lows the way to go) and fix the exhaust, maybe put chrome tips to look the part. VROOOOMM!!

There's a MH registered black transam lying in chennai.
She weighs a ton and goes like stink.
I know about the owner who's quite prominent in the car collectors' circle.
IIRC, she's up for grabs...and not many seem interested(includes me ).

The car in Chennai has proper OE rims and genuine Good year Muscle car tyres which must be real old since the font style was different.
OT:

It means U are not looking in the right places.
I've also seen a Dodge Charger and '67 Ford Mustang in chennai.

According to a friend of mine who's an Olds fanatic, this is a 1966 Oldsmobile Dynamic 88 sedan - remarkable that it still has what looks like the original hubcaps.
