With the side trim a Chevette 'GL' or 'GLS'.

The Kadett was also sold in the UK at the time, but front or rear not visible to say it was the Opel.

Doesn't the black (plastic?) air intake indicate a later version?

@Sunbar, I think the dashboard with the big instrument cluster (which is visible here) was reserved to the Chevette.

Good spot! I found it on the 1981 version.

Edit: and by then there was no Kadett [C] anymore.

According to wikipedia the new airvents came with the 1979 update.

Quote
A minimalist facelift in 1979 saw protruding headlight covers applied to the front of the car and plastic trims to highlight the extractor vents on the rear pillars of the saloon Chevette.

GL confirmed as the GLS was discontinued in 1978. The raised side mouldings were introduced 1979 on the GL.

October 1978 - GL 4 door saloon model introduced...with sports type alloy wheels and additional bright trim around the windows. GLS saloon discontinued.

September 1979 - All models revised with flush fitting headlamps, restyled seats, front door pockets and, on GL models only, protective side mouldings.
