These cars were licenced all over the world, originally coming from the British 1971 Nova kit car. If you're American, you can pick one up as a Sterling (completely unrelated to the imported Rovers). This one seems to have been somewhat modified, with the whole rear fascia redesigned into a striking futuristic grille design, and the bonnet scoop appears to be aftermarket too. It all drags the design into the 1980s nicely.
The Eureka is named after the Eurake Stockade; a rebellion staged by gold miners against colonial British soldiers in 1854. It lasted half an hour, and was the closest Australia ever got to a civil war, a la America. However, the flag the rebels used remains a bogan symbol to this day. Fortunately, the Purvis hasn't been caught up in the historical shrapnel, instead remaining an interesting footnote in the Australian automotive landscape - which is a footnote itself, really.
