Thisd is not a Montego for sure. Its a mid eighties Nissan or Toyota. Not an Isuzu cause the Isuzu had a very shorty stubby back. Also the finger points towards more it being a Toyota (Carona) due to the rear lights which look very similar to a toyota corona or rather look very Corona-esq. Also the front rim is from a Maruti 1000. May be a Nissan too. Is it a sunny?....nope. Can we get a front side pic? With the lights and the grille I think we would be able to solve the puzzle or else ab toh sirf Ram par hi bharosa hai Ram where forth art thou Ram??

It sounds more Japanese to me. Even the faces on the cover.
