I’ll guess a Falcon Futura hardtop, ca. 1963.
That is definitely the base of the C-pillar on a ’66 Galaxie. I was a bit in doubt as it is a car that shows up on CC very often though.
I was gonna say ’67, but the more I look at it the more I think you are right.
Exner in his design philosophy sought to include basic elements of early and fundamental automobile design, emphasizing wheels, wheel openings, radiators, exposed headlamps and taillights, etc. Hence freestanding headlamps on the ’61 Imperial, and that suggestion in headlamp fender areas. The fender blades of the ’62 Plymouths and Dodges, and on the first Valiants, were to replicate “free-standing fenders” with sheet metal. Check out his Mercer Cobra Concept, it helps define some of his philosophy!
its very obviously a reflection of the grassy knoll, so has to be the motorcade Lincoln.
1967 Mercury 2 door hardtop
