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!


Yea, that was the clue I picked up on but never got to the South American connection. I saw the red centers on the rims and was looking at Fiat's. that was a tough one Harry.

I see the VW bit, but to me it looks like a cross between a Mark 4 Ford Cortina, a '74 Toyota Corolla and a shopping trolley! The body is too big for the running gear. Bring on the next one!

Like everyone else I began with european cars from the 70's-80's. At some point I discovered the South American connection and it went from there to the right answer. I got it wrong once, real darn close but wrong none the less.

 

I just knew that sheet metal in the rear quarter panels but could't place it until I saw hundreds of photos.

 

Good one Harry.

I got the right date. I got the right manufacturer. I even got the right country. But evidently I failed to try all three in the same search because I certainly didn't get the car!

Well, I had my fun with you guys when I suggested the Bolwell Nagari. Not only had I seen one on the streets (very rare) but I also knew one of the Bolwell brothers when I was a child.

I thought the three-lug wheels would be a huge clue...

I tried Renault then VW and a picture of an old VW ad showed up comparing it to two other cars and there it was ! Wasn't thinking Ford at all til I saw the blue oval on the grill in that ad. It's interesting looking at all the cars while searching but you can sure kill a lot of time doing it !

Do you have any idea how many cars were made with three lug rims? I do! Fiats, Volvos, Subaru's, early Volvos(check out the ones in the background) not to mention the wacky French cars. I never knew there were so many. I figured that would be an easy thing to Google when I started. Wrong!
