I don't know the Ford Cortina but that head lamp area looks an awful lot like a 69ish Nova.

I don't think it looks quite like either one, close but not quite. But the doors and the rest of the body look more like the Cortina.

I was thinking '72 Chevelle sedan.....

Went back and looked again.........I agree, Nova

And that brings up another mystery. WHY all that time and money in a sedan ???????

I do believe this is in Europe or Austriala or somewhere like that. There are many places where there are literally almost zero two doors. The reason being is you bought a family car for life. They didn't have three cars like us spoiled Americans, they had ONE car for years it was common for families in these countries to have ONE car in the family for many decades. So they had to be practical, hints the four door.

There are plenty of two door cars over here, some like the Cortina came as two and four door cars.
Funny name for a car, "Cortina", Spanish for curtain.
Cortina
