80 Estate B1. Anyway, "Estate" is the main name of the car (like the other 80 Estate in the site ;) )

I've never seen one of these before. Spritual ancestor to the A4 Avant, I suppose.

I knew that was existed the US-spec one(Audi Fox Wagon),but never had seen that European(knew that in Europe UK was one of few markets where was marketed--it was the replacement of Audi 60 Variant)

PS Limited at UK market,knew that some Audi of Early Seventies were realized as estate cars by specialized Coachbuilders(Crayford,e.g.,done estate cars on Audi saloons that don't own stock-made that body variation,like the larger Audi 100 1st gen.,modified as a 5-doors--and available also as Cabriolet)

I think they were rare in the UK because VAG pushed the near-identical VW Passat Estate instead.

i have doubts, that "made for uk" is correct. at first only in the usa the passat variant/dasher wagon was named audi fox, at second it has us-bumpers. unfortunately hard to see, if lhd or rhd.

i am quite sure, that it was an us-version, which had found the way to britain.

by the way, its very easy to make an audi from a passat. just change the grille, at the european version the lamps either. less than 15 minutes work. only one screwdriver is needed.

Looks like LHD, if its a us Audi (the bumpers are us) its a Audi fox, but ingo is right, could be a passat with Audi logo and us bumpers of fox

The wiper system is certainly RHD. You can clearly see the wiper arms are in use and sweeping towards the right hand 'A' pillar. Its UK registered and carries a tax disc. I don't believe you can see through the windscreen due to reflected daylight. Its built for the UK market I think.

The pivot points for the wiper arms are seen below the bottom of the windscreen even if the arms and blades are blurred.

I saw many in UK with RHD but with USA specications bumpers. I remember even the 1977-78 facelifted version, too. I remember one exactly like this in this colour and a facelifted in a lighter shade of copper metallic (both seen in London between 1979 and 1982)
I saw for sure some in Israel (mk I one in sky blue in L trim with single headlights and a similar one in another colour I cannot recall) and possibly in some Arab countružes.
I met a burgundy one (in the L trim) in an Autobahn near Munich in the 80s but I suspected at the time it was originally a Passat with an Audi 80 grille.
Sorry but I think Ingo is wrong. I read the rear scrip Audi on those cars seen in UK and in Israel.

Estate launched in UK June 75 as GL, 1470cc. Sept 75 upgraded to 1588cc, Sept 76 wrapround bigger bumpers and renamed GLS, discontinued Aug 78. This looks like R plate = 1976-77.

That explains a confusing cross-reference on a different page in Glass's to rectangular headlights.
