I can identify certain parts of it but had to take a break after 20 minutes of "close but no cigar"...

Gadzooks Harry, could you have picked a more generic car!  It's a ToyNissanChevDodgeAMCeuroFordHolden 2 door hatchback from the 70's.  Frankly I can only see one clue and it is driving me nuts !

I dunno -- there can't have been many cars that came with a small-scale cut-out version of itself fitted to the windscreen...

Are you sure? After searching that line, I wasn't entirely convinced it wasn't some rare fiberglass thing. The headlight ring doesn't look quite right!

This week's car is a 1981 Ford Corcel II.

 

Corcel II was built in several South American countries between 1977-86.

Well I'm amazed! I picked up on the 3 wheelnuts but thought it was some kind of Renault  12/15/17 or Citroen based thing but that was as far as I got. And it turns out it was based on a Renault 12! Henry would turn in his grave...

Good one Harry!
