Yes a Ford Corsair , but I don't find those rubber bumpers in the productions of 1964 to 1969 period :/
So is it a post 1970 model? or an adaptation for export models , a vietnamese modification?... who knows?

Certainly not standard on UK models and I would think they were fitted afterwards in Vietnam.

Agree 1966+ Corsair V4 (until Sept 68 when V-badge replaced by FORD lettering). No idea about the over-riders - they are not Ford-like at all - Ford loved chrome. The only example of something similar - and not a very good comparison - which I can think of is the white 1970+ Cortina Mk3 in the background of /vehicle_34618-Ford-Taunus-TC1-1971.html . Also noted that many of the other 1960s European cars in other entries have over-riders which look unusual (eg Saab, Dauphine and the Anglia in the same picture) - local regulations??

BTW I've never seen orange sidelights like that on a Minor - single units were always white until Oct 63 when a split white orange/white unit combined indicators and sidelights.

Update: there was Thailand assembly for Ford UK models - including Corsair, Capri, Anglia, Escort, Cortina - in late 60s to early 70s, so this is probably local assembly.
