Wrong front end for Honda S. Wrong side shape for MG B.
I was thinking about Simca 1200 Bertone. Close but not match.
It's something other...

I still think MGB, but see what you mean about body side around the rear wheel arch. Car looks slightly modded - no front bumper and lights in grille, but still narrow wheels so rear arch widening unlikely. Recessed headlights match MGB, but Datsun Sports would look similar, or even a bumperless Spitfire/GT6, though smaller GT6 rear window outline would probably be outlined in the glare. Honda S800 too small, Midget/Sprite did not have recessed headlights.

Well I was thinking about MGB GT also:

However this car here has more bulbous wings (rear especially) - if may I say - much wider hips than MGB. ;)

And it's a coupe, I suppose. Convertible shouldn't have misted up rear window. And feels rear-engined. :think:

Grille opening definitely means front-engined to me - can't think of anything rear engined with a front grille area that big (apart perhaps from Simca, but agree with you that it's not one of those). Try a Spitfire without bumpers eg /i041118.jpg - I'm warming to the idea.

i think it's a B GT as well... and i think that it does have a front bumper ~ complete with over riders similar to the B GT linked above.

Yes, it has front bumper. One more thing doesn't match to MGB. It should have much wider grille.

What about any sign of oilpan on front and wider rear track?

MGB seems most likely, especially as the orange indicator/side marker lights are under the headlights. but the back end doesn't look right. I don't know quite why, but it makes me thing Italian, possibly Alfa. Then again, it could be an optical illusion due to the odd way the car it lit from behind.

Definitely MGB from new picture - now clearly the early grille 66-69.
