Any idea what car this is?
« on: Tuesday 24 August 21 20:55 BST (UK) »
Hello,

Ive just come across this old photo of my grandparents. They married in 1954, and they still look fairly young, so Id assume between then and 1960 or so.

I know its a bit of a long shot, but thought Id post in case anyone might be able to work it out. Some kind members helped identify a car for me before. If anyone could please help, Id greatly appreciate it!

They did always buy Ford ;D would make sense to me. Anyone else concur or disagree?

Wrong sort of doors for a Ford Popular, on the Ford they open from the rear like doors do now but these open from the front.
