Saab 96

Like it?

The Saab 96 was first introduced to the market in 1960. After five years, it got a big facelift that made it look like the example in the picture, which is rusting away somewhere in Colorado, USA. That also means it has a four stroke cycle engine, which was a big innovation for Saab.
The next facelift in 1969 changed the headlights to a form that was kept nearly untouched until the end of the production in 1980.
Pay attention to the wooden bumper of the abandoned Saab.
As usual in the 1960s, the bumper originally was chrome, as you can see here:
