Hi guys!

Tidying up the house a bit and I came across this photo of my great aunt.

Image

Can anyone identify this car? If it helps any, this photo was taken in Hong Kong. - I thought it was some sort of Toyota but I haven't a clue towards older cars.
If it is a Toyota, does this means I'm a third generation JNCer? :lol:

This is the best and only film print to digital I got, this is what I was dealing with.

Image

Tiny! :D

Same here...

Keep squinting to see if that hood emblems says VAUXHALL (what it looks like to me)...

Very similar to the Vauxhall Velox of the mid 50s...

maybe a vauxhall branded car with opel trimmings. most cars in asia are marketed this way. especially that hong kong used to be colonised by the british, tons of british cars compared to japanese cars in that area

same like in malaysia. 1965 honda s600 is an alien in a car country dominated by austins, bmc's and such.

It's a British Ford Consul.

I actually knew what it was the moment I looked at it. I've had a Revell model kit of one for ages I've never built.
