Wondering if anyone can identify the black convertible used in the 1985 music video 'I Knew the Bride When She Used to Rock and Roll' by Nick Lowe (viewable on YouTube)...

The car appears from 3:58 to 4:18 with a good front view at 4:12...

The car has a hood scoop, wraparound windshield, smallish fins, wide stance... looks like a late 50's to early 60's model... the shrouded headlights are very similar to a 2nd gen Ford Fairlane, but the grille doesn't look like a Ford grille...

Any help on make/model/year would be greatly appreciated.
