This is not a Chevette HS (or HSR) but standard Chevette.

BeanBandit you're right. :o

You found a better picture than I could and those that I found seem to have been modified from standard.

The silver / red finish and front air dam looks right for the HS.

Again the point of discussion: what "origin" country is correct for that car? Where it was designed and constructed originally? Later on it was assembled and sold by GM under a plenty of different names in many countries around the world.

Just by a short brainstorming I got in my mind:

Opel Kadett C, assembled in D and B
Vauxhall Chevette
Chevrolet Chevette (USA)
Chevrolet Chevette (Brazil)
Holden Gemini
Opel K 180 (Argentina)
Chevrolet Kadett(?), the ZA-version of the Kadett
Isuzu Gemini

Wasn't there something South Korean, too?

Yes, in South Korea there were the Saehan Maepsy and Gemini, and later the Daewoo Maepsy.

Ah, thanks. I know we had discussed about it recently.

Could it be, that this car is the car with the second most names in the world? No.1 was this Humber/Singer/Hillman/Paykan-model.

also there was the lesser known Grumett from Uruguay . Unusually they used the same UK style front end and did coupe and pick up truck variants. The body panels were mainly fibreglass.

Most other countries had the chevrolet or kadett front end.

The chevette in its UK form was also sold in New Zealand. Making it a unique country as it had three variants sold there, the chevette, the holden gemini and the kadett.
