1964+ Vauxhall Victor [FC]?

If it is a Victor (and I'm not 100% it is because I cannot understand the grille and headlights) its an [FB]. The Victor 101 [FC] had very curved/flush side windows.

Yes, [FB] seems to be the newer Victor 101; incorrect info in my book... There the 1964 face-lifted version of the [FB] was called [FC]. This facelift had the moulding next to the headlights, and still the heavy moulding near the taillights. But the pic is quite blurred, and I'm not sure.

Yes...

The moulding by the tailights and the general body shape says its a Victor FB but the front is so dark and without detail I cannot see if its before or after the facelift.

I 'm not convinced with this one as a Vauxhall Victor whatever the version FB or FC, isn't the rear wing too sharp for a Velox? circumflex shape of the body near the grill doesn't match so well with it neither

something else ? (US ?)

There are quite a few details, other than those already mentioned, that confirm for me this is a Victor [FB]...

Windscreen shape and wiper spindle positions.

Pronounced bulge at the sill line.

Central rib in the bonnet and central divider in the grille.

Front and rear bumper shape (unlikely in a US car).

Agreed that its too dark and unclear as an image but I am 80% convinced.
