Yes. ADO16 for sure. For the make/model, I do not know if it is Austin, Morris or MG though.

Where did the year come from?

Would have thought it 1970 or so myself.

The Austin America was launched in 1968. In 1969 the bumper overriders were rubber covered.

Shouldn't this have a made-for USA flag?

Were the tall headrests introduced before the rubber covered bumper overriders? If not I would suppose these 1969 seats were later installed into a 1968 car.

Have asked about the over-riders.

Although using your therory couldn't someone have swapped over-riders? ;-)

This is the answer I got from Todd :-

"It's not a '68 or a '70. re-read what I wrote."

I guess he doesn't like to be questioned :-(

Sure, but I guess it makes more sense to add newer stuff to older cars, especially safety equipment.

Probably he doesn't know himself but didn't want to admit. ;)

Let's keep 1969. If you or I or someone else find more information we can always change it again.

The shape of the headrests and the recessed reflectors in the side trim identify a 1969 model year car. The overiders with rubber and the side marker lights on the front and rear wings were only added for the 1970 model year.
