Boy Harry,

  I think you got me on this one.  That is a face I can't forget, but can't remember what it is.  I've even got the country of origin but that is not helping.  Good choice.

I knew it looked like a Ford Corsair, just couldn't come up with exact year or model. I remember Matchbox having one similar to this when I was a kid.

Boy was I way off!!  I wasn't even on the right continent.  That front end made me think of an older Mazda and the mirrors looked very Japanese. Good one Harry!

I also thought it was a Japanese car but could not come up with anything...

the wheels immediately made me think Ford, right hand drive made me think British, Cortina was my next link but it didn't match so I looked for variants and came across the Corsair.

I had the English Ford part, but I didn't have the Corsair part. BTW, Not to nit-pick, but my research shows it to be a '69 Ford CONSUL Corsair 2000E.

I knew this one straight away when I saw it, but couldn't remember the year. Well luckily my guess was close enough and finally I got one of these right. Can't wait for the next one!

I think the Consul part was dropped when the V4 and 2000E designation came about.

http://en.wikipedia....ki/Ford_Corsair

EDIT: It appears that's the deal. The website www.fordconsulcorsair.co.uk/ states the following:


Welcome to my Ford Consul Corsair website!
This is a website dedicated to the inline, 1498cc models known as the 'Consul Corsair' which were produced from the summer of 1963 until October 1965. It does not cover the V4 models which were introduced from October 1965 and badged simply as the "Ford Corsair."
