This is again a car that does not qualify for our thread. It is a kit car.
ID:473 is an Amante GT, first manufactured in 1969 under the name “Gazelle”, fit to a Volkswagen Beetle pan.
The windshield and backlight were from a Rambler Marlin.

The car was made by a variety of companies (Hebina Plastics, Voegele Industries, Performance Designers, and Amante Cars). Went out of production in the mid/late 1970s.

Default ID:474; Austin Lancer Series II

ID:474 is indeed the Austin Lancer Series II.



It was produced by BMC Australia at Sydney between 1958 and 1962.

With our venerable Ambassador, it shared the BMC B-Series engine with the single SU carburettor, front torsion bar/rear leaf spring suspension and rack and pinion steering.

I was searching for pop up headlamps in google image search. After nearly two hours of browsing ( my exams got over yesterday ) I came across the same image you had posted, so managed it. I was also a bit lucky here that after changing words from pop up headlamps, pop up headlamps ferrari, old cars with popup headlamsp, etc. It was basically through headlamps that I finally managed this. I have also mentioned that point in post. I finally caught up with the image. I came to its amante GT. Then it was searching " amante GT " in web search. I got the image I have posted.
