If you click on the bar at the top of the image you can read the badges quite easily - I don't think its cheating if you use anything in the image itself.

Correct - its a Nissan built Austin. Nissan did a deal with Austin just after WW2 to manufacture CKD cars eventually manufacturing all parts locally in a kind of technology transfer. The engine in this car was the basis of the B20 engine used in loads of Nissans.

Ok...A little twist.

A American car company that was in business for nearly a quarter of a century.

Some of the features offered by them were - automatic transmissions, unit body construction, safety glass tinted windshields, aluminum doors and fuel economy approaching 65mpg.
