Right on Darcane!

In America, it officially ended as a '70 1/2 model subname for a Fairlane that had what we call the '70/71 Torino look. Absolute basement model w cheap looking electric shaver looking grille! Not a nice way to end the name.

The sister was the Mustang. The cousin was the Mercury Comet.

3yrs ago, I watched a very hot '65 Falcon run in the Portland Historic Races.
It ran VERY strong, always near the lead amongst Mustangs, and early Camaro's!

Your show Darcane! ( my 1st car: ;67 Chevelle was about the color of that Saab)

The window line and overall shape suggests AMC Pacer, maybe a styling buck or prototype ?

But the wheels seem to scream Toyota to me for some reason.
