Should the Honda Accord 3rd generation be on the list?
I know the Accord Aerodeck was sold in the UK with pop up headlights as I owned one.

In the USA the rest of the accord 3rd generations had pop up lights not the fixed lights we had here.

Had a double-take when I saw this in a car book at my parent’s house today. Turns out it’s the Bitter Type 3 - a proposal for a small sports car, again based on Opel mechanics. Looks awfully familiar.

The Healey Westland roadster prototype appears to have popups or rotating headlights (Donald Healy centre).

The Jensen F type appears to have popups, as well as a Reliant connection :D

The 1972 Jensen F by William Towns. Apparently Towns made a 4/10 scale model and then ‘Indestor’ of Turin digitized the
exterior of the model to allow Carrozzeria Coggiola, Torino, to make a full size plaster model. From that plaster model, Motor Panels fabricated steel panels, and then assembled them into 4 prototype body shells, one of which was offered for sale on ebay

The Jensen G type was also designed by Towns, the story goes that Donald and Geoff Healey vetoed this car in favour of their own design which was launched as the Jensen – Healey.

It was planned for the G Type to use Chrysler France (Simca) mechanical components including their 2.0Ltr. engine.
It is known that a Dutch Jensen enthusiast bought a bare body shell (the only one?) at the time of the Jensen Motor Company liquidation in 1976.
He contracted Lynx Motors (famous for its Jaguar XKSS recreations amongst others) to turn the G Type body shell into a road going car.
It was fitted with a Lotus Excel SE 2.2ltr. engine mated to a Toyota five speed gearbox and modified Ford Escort suspension. It is believed that this car still exists.
