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...

;-P

Wow I thought I knew what this was , but I have not found it yet. It looks like everything else built during this period. I am sure I will kick myself when Harry post the answer on Friday. Hey Harry can we get a hint. LOL...............

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!

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.
