a '60's Ford came to my mind also. That badge on the pillar looks like a FoMoCo design,

Weimer,

My first guess was a '62 Galaxie but a picture I found thru Google looks close, but no cigar.
Notice the two chrome strips ? Does the emblem on the roofline look familiar?
I'm looking anywhere I can, trying to help my wife find the answer for something she has going at work. She is in the Advertising Dept. at a local casino

I take that back....It looks like a 64-66 (Fairlane)Thunderbolt now that I think about it.

I will see if I can find a pic of the emblem just to verify that.
Later,
WEIMER

Hey this is tougher than I thought.

The door handle looks to be in the Top chrome strip so I don't think it's a T-bolt, but I do agree it looks to be some sort of Ford emblem The search goes on...

Ya'll may have it figured out already, but I still wanna thrown in my .02. The emblem on the pillar looks like a squished and widdened Lincoln emblem to me. I may be way off, but I wanted to throw that out there.

Looks like this 63 galaxy


i think in the original, you can see the 'ie' from the word galaxie in line with the bottum trim towards the front.
