That's a 1953 Chevy.

I know I shouldn't be looking at the automobile. And I know you can't see much of it. But any guesses as to what this car might be?
It "feels" mid-60s GM A-body to me, but then I can't seem to fully match its visible characteristics to such cars via a Google image search. The vent window seems slightly too swept-back, the door panel doesn't seem to match anything I've seen factory (is it custom?), the mirror is missing (but is a flat, chrome disc on the driver's side), the rims look like aftermarket products, and part of the front quarter badge appears to be missing.
Thanks in advance for any help or guesses.

It might be a 1965 Chevrolet Impala as I can make out the letters IMP near her right leg.

Ah, you have better eyes than I do at this age. I was thinking that was a busted-up emblem, but you're probably right. THANKS!
I found a lot of pictures of Impala SS models from the era and they have a script-style "SuperSport" in that location. But the plainer-Jane Impala (which the amateur model here certainly isn't) had block lettering "IMPALA" and the emblem with the African antelope just behind the fenderwell.
So it's probably a GM "B" and not an "A." The only A-body in the photo is the young lady.

1937-38 Willys, rare then and much less common today.
