I think the fact that its in a later mk3 shell and has had too much taken out of the roof tells you that its a home built car

Looks like a S&A Minisprint on the right on this Seiko brochure...

Had the image for ages but only spotted the 'Sprint this morning! Car behind it looks like an early Mk3 so it could be a '70s brochure.

It's pre 1983. K. Hattori & Co LTD changed their name to Hattori Seiko Co LTD in 1983.

There is a blue Sprint like that in one of those cool Japanese Neko Mini picture books from the late 70's. They show it being restored in one of the books (1978?) and I think completed in the next one.
