Not hatchback. It's 2-door sedan with small trunklid. Class: supermini.

I strongly think an Australian built Mini.

Yes - also for quarterlights. I guess an early Morris Mini Clubman but either there's more than 1 car or the grille gets swapped from 1275 GT in main to ordinary in thumbs.

The light green small car behind, what's that?

I've a book called Shire Album no. 299 "The Mini" by Jon Pressnell, 1994, Shire Publication, Princes Risborough, Buckinghamshire.

In a chapter called 'Foreign variants, British experimentation, and model development' I read on page 17:
"Over the years the Mini has been assembled in many countries, and some of these have produced their own distinctive variants of the car.
The Italian firm Innocenti, for example produced Minis equipped with Mark II grilles and Mark I rear lights, and when it changed over to wind-up windows it used a configuration incorporating quarterlights. In Australia, meanwhile, one could buy a long-nosed 'Clubman GT' with a Cooper S power unit and with wind-up quarter lights set in pre 1970 doors with exposed hinges. In South Africa a Riely Elf shell fitted with a standard Mini front was offered."

Isn't this a Clubman front, and isn't a GT badge (just) visible in the grill?

If it's a genuine GT (as grille in main) it should have sporty wheels like UK 1275 GT, which thumbs show aren't present in those pics. Thumbs also show a different normal Clubman grille. Assuming nothing happens in the film to explain a grille change, there are probably 2 cars. Main - relying on grille as the only diagnostic clue - 1971 Morris Mini Clubman GT [YDO23], with thumbs seem to match 1971 Morris Mini Clubman 1100 [YDO22]. They switched to Leyland instead of Morris within a year or two, but my hunch is to go early for well knackered appearance(s) by 1986.

Or perhaps the main picture shows an ordinary (British?) Clubman GT, and the the thumbs an Australian built Clubman?

OK definitely 2 different cars - main has door mirror and bonnet pins. Would fit UK 73+ (for mirror position) Mini 1275 GT, but has had a hard life - maybe previously a circuit racer for the pins and what might be a rollbar behind the windscreen (there's someting odd there anyway). Thumbs Aus made 1971 Morris Mini Clubman 1100 [YDO22] - and probably worth its own page as Aus Minis were normally confined to Aus and finding one in HK is a rogue.

The rolled Mini in the third thumb doesn't have exposed hinges either and might be the same as in the main picture (which seems to have roll-bars indeed).
