Hey Percy, I've got your back.   Here they are flipped 180° using an old shareware program called Graphic Converter.  I cropped the main car shot as well for good measure.

 Grab that steering wheel, rare Custom Sport Pontiac wheel from 69 through 73 usually found as highest optional upgrade on GTO, Firebird, LeMans, Grand Prix and available on all others too.

The 73517 on the cowl tag is what gives it away as a 6 cylinder car.

What an unusual combination. A51 buckets, D55 console in a 6 cylinder Beaumont.
