Mystery Car XVII

It took me a little while, but I found it.

Ford Anglia. Likely a 105E.

I looked at the picture, deduced the following:
1. Country of origin: UK. Based on the right-hand drive and Euro plates. Additionally, in the upper corner that is definitely a Euro-spec Jaguar X-type.
2. The time of manufacture was between the late fifties and middle sixties based upon styling alone.
3. It was not likely a car that was imported to the US since I didn't immediately recognize it.
4. I guessed that it was likely either a Vauxhall or Ford UK because of the US styling influence.

Armed with those facts and the internet, I found the car after eliminating Vauxhall and some Ford models.

That was a toughy!!!

Nice work, eggs. You're a hard egg to crack. :) However, I'm thinking my next Mystery Car will stump you.
