Tossed up between ERoY and Shropshire for my next guess.

Shropshire ?

I thought that was a Morris Marina van - shows what I know about vehicles!

The post office is long since closed, although the village shop continued.

Here's a new card (unused and probably dating back to the 1970's or 1980's)

Where is this?

The general idea of this thread is that you have one guess at a time.

However, in this instance I can tell you that it is not Lisbon ... but it is Gibraltar.

Although purchased in 1980, this post card dates back to before the formation of the "new" states in 1976.

No confidence at all. I was going to go for Lagos, but you said not coastal, which narrowed it down a bit.
