Default ID:758; 1960 Mercury Frontenac

You are right about Frontenac of Canada, sir. But not quite about Ford.

ID:758 is a 1960 Mercury Frontenac

These cars were sold exclusively through Mercury-Meteor dealers in Canada. The Mercury Frontenac was a single year model: 1960.

The mechanically equivalent Ford product also sold in Canada, was the 1960 Ford Falcon.
The Mercury Frontenac shared the same 2360 cc straight six Falcon engine that could develop 90 bhp.

The Mercury Frontenac differed from Ford Falcon in its uniquely different
Frontenac grille,

Frontenac tail lights and Frontenac external trim.

The logo included a red maple leaf. This car was deliberately not branded as a Ford.

So it may be right to call it simply a 1960 Frontenac (as a marque by itself)
or 1960 Mercury Frontenac. But you can't call it a Ford Frontenac.

ID758

Point well made. Built by Ford ltd in Canada, sold through Mercury dealers, looks just like a Falcon, no definitive badging. I believe a real albatross here, and a great car for a thread like this.

ID:759 seems obviously a 1973-1976 GM midsize wagon.
I would say 1974 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Cruiser.
But the hubcaps are non-standard half-moon caps.

Default ID:759; 1973 Chevrolet Chevelle station wagon

ID:759 is obviously a 1973-1976 GM midsize wagon.

Based on the twin tail lights in the bumper and the half-moon caps, I take back 1974 Oldsmobile Cutlass Supreme Cruiser.

I say it is a 1973 Chevrolet Chevelle station wagon. There were Super Sport "SS" wagons too. But this is a plain non-SS Chevelle wagon.
Yes I am confident, the twin sidemarker lamps in the front and rear announce it as such. Enough sleuthing. I rest my case.

Yes,both of you are correct!
The Chevelle station wagon is a very rare and rather obscure car.It was offered with the SS/Z15 option too,though only in the year 1973.Incidentally 1973 was the last year that the SS package appeared on the Chevelle.

Chevelles came with three trim levels-Deluxe,Malibu and Laguna.The car in the pic is a non-SS version(no SS identification on the wagon lift-gate,front fenders,wheels etc),as pointed out by Ram. And its indeed a 1973 Chevelle Malibu wagon,as pointed out by CCC!

ID 760 appears to be a 1962 Chrysler New Yorker station wagon,though some subtle differences in the tail-lamps and window line exist.

You are correct sir! Your answer is right, but your picture is wrong. It shows a 62 Dodge.
