I believe that is a 1960 Ford Thunderbird:

1960 Ford Thunderbird

The 1959 had only two lights on each side and the 1961 was significantly restyled and had only a single light on each side.

1959 Thunderbird:

1959 Thunderbird

1961 Thunderbird:

1961 Thunderbird

Very distinctive vehicle and the key here is the Thunderbird logo in the center of the trunk lid.

  • Thank you jwh20. I should have recognized the Thunderbird logo having lived near the Thunderbird assembly plant many years ago

  • It sure looks like a T-Bird, but the trunk lid on it is funky compared to the image you posted. There's the ridge above the symbol and the chrome piece center/top. Still, I don't see it being anything other than a '60 T-Bird. EDIT: Ah, it's just a trick of light and that the image is poor quality. Jul 21, 2022 at 17:58

    The appendage just behind the rear window is for a radio aerial. Not all models have this, but if you go here (before the car is sold!), you will find several pictures (for example, this shows it clearly).
