So Stephen got the closest on the first try and googootz added the safety of bracketing the model years on the Nova. I call that a shared crown. Who will take the crown this round? Can you identify the King here?
I’m going to say it’s a mid 70’s Lincoln Continental Town Car.
Edit to remove Grand, if it’s a Merc it’s a regular Marq.
1969-70 Cadillac (all exc. Eldorado). The Lincolns and Mercurys had a chrome strip on top of the fender.
Looks like a Mk.III Continental–they looked good in that colour.
One of those special edition Lincolns….not the Bill Blass….the other one.
It can’t be any of those because on all of them, the hood ends flush like a hatch cover,, and the fascia is separate. On this, the hood wraps all the way over and down.
Call me crazy, but I think we are looking at a ’72 or ’73 Ford Cortina.
Or a 78 Ford LTD from OZ but yeah MK3 cortina fits
