The cactus and palm trees reminds me of Palm Springs or San Diego. The license plate looks like about 1968. What year is the car?
It's a 1964 Mercury Monterey "Breezeway" model. Notice the rear window goes up and down, hence, Breezeway.Some of those old Mercury's were getting to the point of gaudiness with all their adornments, see this "Turnpike Cruiser": https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercury_Turnpike_Cruiser#/media/File:1957_Turnpike_Cruiser_(8106404537).jpg
I remember Arnold Palmer doing a commercial hitting a ball through the rear window in '64...
I am fairly certain that it is a Montclair, rather than, a Monterey.
I believe you may be right. That trim work between the tail lights is the give away. Booth models are very similar in appearance.
From the looks of the photo I'd say it must have been taken in 1882.
