That is a '67--no side marker lights, but more importantly, it's the '67-68 bodystyle and not the new '69-70.
Oops, now I see the poster had to identify it!

huh. OK. I found more pics and they do all look like that. Really thought '67 would have still had the '65-'66 taillights, and I definitely thought it said shelby on the back.

Yep, the side marker lights are a good way to tell a '68 from a '67 Shelby Mustang. Another is the placement of the hood scoops and the more rectangular auxiliary lights in place of the round ones in the '67.
There's a shiny metal surround on the '68 tailights which the '67 doesn't have.
Oh, and there were no convertibles in '67 (what a shame).

It's a Rolls 20/25 (plate helps ), "where was it built" is a fun question. I see it is RHD, I don't know if a Springfield built car would be RHD, and the body is later than Springfield production.

That picture was taken last September and I didn't look at it very closely, but I thought we had a picture of a Springfield Rolls and that is definitely not it!

although odd color choice for the brand

Springfield production ended in 1930, I think. That car is probably 1935-39. But, RRs were often rebodied. It would be cool in a way to have a US built Rolls.

That's the car that comes to mind when I hear the word "Ferrari", it's a late 50s/early 60s 250GT Short Wheelbase Berlinetta.
Ferraris don't have to be red, Stirling Moss won a race at Goodwood in 1960 driving a dark blue SWB, while listening to the radio.
