Is that an Opel Manta in the background?

I think it's a Capri (English Ford). 70's era.

How about this nice round body 2-door wagon. This is on sale @ EBAY (not mine). Fun car.

That looks like a '63 Sedan Delivery. I wonder if it would do a wheelie?

And yeah, I agree with Gene. My first thought was 70-something Europe-based Mercury Capri. Used to see them a lot, but not so much anymore.

This Capri might be faster...

I "googled" images for the Opel Manta and Mercury Capri and found the following. They do look similar, but the shape of the back window is different.

Mercury Capri
3130

Opel Manta
3131

While I was looking at Opel pictures I saw this nice looking 1964 Opel Rekord. The front grill at least appears very similar to a 1963 Falcon's. The vertical fins on the front fenders are nice. The 1961 Plymouth Valiant had horizontal front fender fins. Those would have opened another car up like a can opener in a collision.
