That would be [FB]. I'm a bit surprised to see the writing above the wheel arch.

Not a Vauxhall I believe, 75% certain.

Cresta and Velox PB had script in that location but not Victor FB.

Sidelight/indicator and bumper wrap-around not long enough.

Shape under the headlight looks wrong.

Not an expert on Opel (Rekord) before 1970s but I would say its possibly that rather than Vauxhall Victor.

I would say it looks more a 1963+ Velox ( or Cresta ) [PB].

Cresta indeed (Velox had painted window frames). Cf the writing on this car: /vehicle_34034-Vauxhall-Cresta-PB-1964.html

DynaMike my previous comment was not very clear I'm afraid.

Its not a Cresta PB (or Velox) because the side-light and the panel moulding above it on both PB models.

I still believe it is probably a Opel Rekord but it is not in my opinion any Vauxhall. ;)

:/ If not a Cresta, what could it be?? I'm sure the Opel can be excluded as well. Those had much straighter lines, a sharp adge halfway the sides, pointed front, bigger indicators...

In fact, that area of the body doesn't have enough light to be clearly seen, but if you focus your attention to other design details the main pic and the thumbnail cars match pretty well.

I am going to admit it is after all a Cresta. ;)

By changing the contrast the Cresta script is visible.

However as rpcm there is so little light the details are not visible around the side-light. I was definitely fooled by the area at the front.

Thank you both for continuing to convince me you were right with Cresta. :)

It sure is a PB Cresta and in a super~rare colour scheme of Cardinal Red ! I've never seen a Cardinal Red one "in the flesh". Even the interior was red!
