This is an Austin 1800, rather than a Princess, which was introduced in September 1975. You can tell this is one of the earlier 18-22 Series by its lack of chrome trim on the sills, plus the lack of a small Princess crown on the bonnet. This is an Austin model as it has trapezoidal headlights and is a basic rather than a High Line model.

"When it was launched in March 1975, the car was not originally called the Princess, but it was originally called the 18-22 Series, which referred to the engine sizes available. "

The 1977 Austin Princess 1800HL I (unfortunately) owned back then had round dual headlights, and I remember that the 2200 had the same headlights as on the pics. Was this following to a facelift, or could that white car be a 2200?

"The 1977 Austin Princess 1800HL I (unfortunately) owned back then had round dual headlights"

Yup, in 1977 the BL Princess 1800 DID have round headlights - the name 'Princess' was introduced for the new wedge shape in September 1975 only after 7 month of being Austin or Morris. Princess 1800s had dual round lights whilst Princess 2200s had trapezoidals. Prior to September '75, the range was either Austin, Morris or Wolseley (i.e. NOT Princess), and only Austins (both 1800 and 2200) had trapezoidals. Morris and Wolseley versions had dual round lights.

Confusing, no?

I see a nice Citroën GS in the left of the picture, in the beautifull colour Orangé Teneré....is it by chance any better visible than this?

Also visible in the same sequence is a very brief shot of the rear of a bright yellow Renault 8, possibly 8S. Another/same yellow 8 with 1968 G plate briefly seen parked at roadside by flats complex after about 24 minutes.
