It's all Ford. They've continued making roundbodies up to 1982 in Argentina.

Falcons were built in Argentina until '91. They were built on the round body style and later models had square headlights. 2dr, 4dr, wagons, Ranchero.

Big following, still modified and race on road courses today.

Personally, I think we waste too much capital redesigning and retooling every few years, I think what they did in Argentina is awesome.
1967 mustang coupe - 200ci, 69 dizzy, adjustable rockers, headers and dual exhaust, T5.

1964 convertible falcon - Gutted.

1973 EB Bronco - 302ci (sorry!) DUI ignition, C4/D20, Dana 44, 33's

And especially since modern cars look extremely ugly to me. "You want HOW MUCH for that ugly thing???" Not sure what medication modern designers use, but they need to ban it.

Perhaps, but imagine if they froze things right now. Ugh.

I'm still hoping for a major resurgence for rear-wheel drive.
