Now remember at the time all of those cars were produced by the same company British Leyland in the UK, making this, like so many other BL cars a parts cars. It was produced from 1971 until 1977 with a minor face lift in 1973. In total more than 21,500 were built in two trim/power version were built the Apache, with 63bhp and the TC with 75bhp from its 1275 A-series engine (the same one fitted to the Mini).
This is a car until recently that I never knew about, with such a low production run in a limited market I imagine it’s also now rare in South Africa.
