Found elsewhere.

Someone saw it and noticed the yellow Jeep in the center, its a G503 of some kind.

Great photo.
I know that "circa" means "about".
The car circled in red appears to be a 1963 Chevrolet, of course the new 1963 models would have debuted in the fall of 1962.

Someone said 1950s but I knew it was wrong, I used the 62 Ford on the left as a reference.

In reality, the odds of a high schooler having a brand-new car are slim, so it's probably mid-1960s.

How about a contest regarding that pic to 'name those cars'?

I see a Model A, Volvo, and Corvair....maybe a Bug-eyed Sprite too?

Yes it is a Frog (bug) eye Sprite and a Morgan I think. On the jeep you can see the missing toolbox lid so WW2 definitely.

A Google Image search with that picture returns: Burbank Senior High school, California, 1966.

Good to see someone made good use of his/her jeep.

Kind of cool some kid had a G503 as his ride in that place and time given all the options available to them.
