Definitly a european 80's Ford, probably a Granada with some body conversion for use as a taxi. Some were used as the base for hearses.

Frontal aspect suggests Mk 3 Escort.

Found a few for sale ads for Australian Metrocabs (copying the most useful pictures in case the ads go off line):

Quote 1991 Reliant Metrocab, x taxi with Holden running gear


This one is a closer match for this one here (grille, bumper etc): Link to "www.ebay.com"

Quote VIN: SCD253103MF103803 (MY digit = M = 1991?)
Engine No: VH1186093
Date of Manufacture: 12/1993 (?)
Date of 1st Registration: 07/26/1994


Info on this ad is a bit conflicted, built 1993, registered 1994 but described as a Reliant Metrocab (so should be before 1991?). VIN has M as a modelyear digit which usually means 1991. Also there is a Reliant badge on the steering wheel, which points to Reliant and 1991 or earlier being correct.

So what does this mean for identifying these? Well, it seems they mirrored the UK manufacturer names. Not sure when they stopped (were there any after Reliant sold off the Metrocab?) but as an earliest possibility it seems this type of front (grille and bumper) started with Reliant there. I'm clearing these two unknown Metrocabs as Reliant for this reason pending further information.
