Hi guys,
Can any of you recognize what kind of car that is in the background? Only the front can be seen.

Looks like the front end of a 69 cyclone

German or English Ford Granada, late 60's/early 70's.

Or a 3rd-generation Cortina.

I don't see that big yellow turn signal in the first pic. Otherwise, I'd agree.

The car was left hand drive.
The last time I remember driving this car was 20 years ago. It's a shame I didn't see the beauty of these cars back then. Would really like to know what kind of car it is and see if it is worth searching for. My father doesn't remember who he sold it to some 10-15 years ago.

What about a MKI Capri? I would of thought Cortina as well. My first car was a 67' Cortina GT with a Lotus 1500 in it.

Bumper is wrong for a Cyclone.

The picture was taken in Laos back in 1988. I'm pretty sure it was a US spec car since the US was all over Indochina during the 60s until 1975.

The fact that these people are smiling indicates that they haven't really driven any distance in this Cortina GT....
