I recognize that hood, it looks to me like a full size Oldsmobile of some sort. Delta88, 98 regency, etc.
comments anyone?

In case it helps, here's a view of the driver's seat and the cabin lit up a little more, plus some dashboard shots:

Agree on Oldsmobile, but that's all. Could be several different models from these shots.

The film didn't offer any other shots besides what G-MANN originally provided.

Well, I think we can be certain at least that it is a full-size sedan, within the 1977-84/85 generations. A better view of the C-pillar even from the interior would help narrow down the year range, but it is too dark here. Upon further research, G-MANN's third thumbnail actually helps considerably, given that we can see the bright, shiny chrome instrument panel trim behind the steering wheel (surrounding three gauges) - that was a feature only on the 1980-84/85 facelifted models, where as for both the 98 and 88 in 1977-79, that trim was black. This is also confirmed by the amount of trim not obstructing our vision of it by the steering column, which was much wider in the 1977-79 models. That narrows it down to either 1980-84 Oldsmobile Ninety-Eight Regency or 1980-85 Oldsmobile Delta 88. The red dash light we see in G-MANN's fourth thumbnail is likely the 'BRAKE' light after it has been applied, which it appears to have been in the photo. The light's shape and location were the same in both the Delta 88 and Ninety-Eight Regency models, so no help there. Same goes for the apparently leather interior, as well as the shape of the dashboard.

Based on the degree of slant on the rear window, I'd put my money on 1980-85 Oldsmobile Delta 88 Royale, as the Ninety-Eight's rear window was almost completely vertical and abrupt, and also had longer abnormally-proportioned rear side windows - none of which this model appears to have.
