Roofline is Chrysler product, fins are 57-58. The height of the red tail lamp makes me think this is some kind of hybrid model like Dodge Mayfair/Kingsway or DeSoto Diplomat sold inside Canada or, more plausibly, Mexico.

Looks like a 1957 Plymouth to me.

Yes, for some reason, the blur produced by the light looked like a feature. Here is picture of a different 57 Plymouth's tail lamps illuminated:
Impossible to tell if this is a 4 door Sedan or 2 door Club Sedan because the latter also had a rear vent window. The Business Coupe only had a center post. This car has a center emblem on decklid instead of PLYMOUTH lettering, also proving it to be a 57.
Here is an image I found:
I don't know if it is the price or the dealer's understated "features list" that makes me chuckle a bit! :lol:

If the car is seen closer to the camera from this view, look for chrome moulding at the base of the deck lid. I scoured the net for photos that illustrate this, so here goes:

Restoration photos sometimes lie about trim or options, but this junkyard beauty doesn't want to show off the lower deck trim piece.

It's a very cool early 57 with that lower pan the way it is.
