Very close but a bit more to go.

TVR SM250 1971

Thats the one! And as Accord83 mentions it was also known as the Zante. This was going to be a tough one in that its a one off prototype yet you still manage to figure it out. The TVR SM Zante

I'll try again, is it,

1, Ford Falcon XM (Australia built)

2, TVR Zante

7, Toyota S800 Publica Sport

 

I was going to accept a Ford Falcon as the answer as being Australian the model was probably a bit elusive. Its not an XM though. Its actually an earlier XL. The rears have a different look tail-light bumper arrangement.

XL

XM

Number 7 is in fact Toyota's very First Sports Car the S800 or 800 Sport.

Number 10 has a well documented history. It was a 246 Dino that was stolen as an insurance fraud by the owner not long after it was purchased. The thieves couldn't bring themselves to chop it up as the owner requested so they buried it instead and just cut out the rear Dino badge as proof. The police received a tip off where it was buried in a back yard years later and it was subsequently dug up, sold and restored.

Not altogether convinced on that one . . . . . .

There is a distinct flair on the bottom of the bronze car which is absent on the white one, and the Blue oval would imply a later car ? 78 on - how long were Mk1's around?

Agreed and that's what I thought but @notenoughtimesaid Mk2 Granada Estate much earlier in this thread and it wasn't accepted.
