Bingo, we have a winner (unless it's a Clubman with a 1000 badge).
That's what I reckon is most likely. BL wouldn't expect anyone to notice and just photographed whatever they had to hand ;)
Especially on earlier adverts and brochures there was a lot of "touching up" by hand wasn't there :lol:
It is a UK advert, so they used a UK car and just stuck an Italian plate on it.
It also has a Mk.1/2 boot handle on a Mk.3 lid. Unless that was an 'Innocenti thing'.
I have a Mk3 S Aug 71 (K) purchased new it has the old handle, but I have seen many J registered Mk 3's with the newer handle, I am led to believe that my car is in the last 500? :shock:

Lovely Christmas adverts by the BMC Publicity machine. The problem was that the BMC marketing people just didn't know how to sell the products

Any relationship to the AMAL 8-port crossflow A-Series?

Update
Now found this:
