Notes:
Another European Mystery Dataplate.
The exterior is Powder Blue and White Two-Tone, and the interior is Ember Red and White (the passenger seat back is even in two-tone as the driver's).  The production date must be 1957 because it has no carpet and coloumn-shift-automatic (but it has the big backup-lights).

Export model even because of the speedometer that shows km/h (up to 200).  Another speciality is that the horn ring of the steering wheel is closed through all of the three parts.

The spinner hubcaps have White appliques, the engine color is light blue with red valve covers and white E-400 writing (Maybe a Canadian model even if hasn`t a white steering wheel?  Does anyone know where they produced the export-models for Europe?)

The first line of the dataplate is *G8ABXG700058*, and the second line is F63B.24.AX.66BIS-L*.  The dataplate must have been replaced because it's a Lincoln-Mercury Division dataplate that's a bit too big for the rivets.
I would be glad to hear from you.  Greetings from Germany!
