    Looks like an Edsel. Kind of hard to tell for sure with out being able to see the front. They were built by Ford in 1958, 59 and 60. Not one of Ford's better cars!!!

    Looks like a 1959 Edsel or Mercury. They were pretty much the same car with just a few different styling cues.

    '58 - '60 were bad years for car sales. All manufacturers introduced new styles just in time for a downturn in the economy and a steep sales slide.

    I thought Edsel too, but looking at the number of letters along the rear quarter and even on the front fender, there are more than 5.

    Here's a photo of a '59 Edsel 4-Door Ranger. Looks close.

    That is a Mercury pictured. Mercury, Ford and Edsel of that vintage used the same sheet metal among some models.
    Edit to include Ford
    Second edit: I would break the ID down further to it being a 1958 Mercury Montclair.

    If it wasn't for the rear door handles I'd say it's the spitting image of the 1960/61 Rambler Ambassador Super.

    I was thinking Mercury as well but they had a different rear door window arrangement and the roofline overhung the rear windshield.

    Hmmm.. all of the pics of Mercury's I can find in that era show the rear roof pillar swept forward. The car in that pic has it swept back.

    While I know nothing about old cars my first impression was Rambler.......
