Looks quite a nasty bump.
Was your father in law badly injured?

Comments by Baldylocks, 21st May 2014  
No,Mr T,he was not badly hurt.
All he got was a small cut above his eye.
His mate (I think he was called Eric)picked him up from the hospital & back to where the car got towed away & recovered to,to get his personal effects from it.
He also took these photos & that was the last he ever saw of the car.
As for his ordeal,my father in law just shrugged it off & went back to work the following day,with a story to tell his workmates.

Cars weren't very safe in those days but the 'crumple zones' on that one seem to have worked OK.
