First glance I thought it might be an Opel GT.
Mid seventies. I knew a guy who had one - diesel, column shift :)

Jim, my brother worked for BL Australia until it closed down.
He bought the very last Mini they produced direct off the assembly line for his daughter, his grandson still owns it, restored it after it was left in the garage for years.

Yes looks like you have hi the nail on the head there :) Any more precision on model/year.

edit....not one of the most difficult whatsthisthens? no need for any skullduggery just the simple technique of making the image bigger! Yes it says Steyr-Diesel bottom of the grille, and bang in the middle of the badge is 480!
