No... It's a Kimberley. That police car is NZ Transport dept traffic police, from the days when the regular Mr Plod regarded a speeding car as somebody else's problem.

Yup you are right - the four headlamps give it away.

Oh yes, told you they were all different!
It was the closest I could find , that wasn't wood trimmed, got a strip speedo or had heater control sliders.

Mark one 110s got round dials but a token strip of fake wood across the top half of the dash, most Mark twos had all-wood with a strip speedo (except the standard models, but we're in danger of nerding out here)

Just to confuse things. mine has a metal dash, painted to simulate wood. Padded top. Slider heater controls round dials with the clock sitting above the steering column.

Like this. but without  the small extra dial next to the radio.
