1.2mm on the floor and 1mm elsewhere or the equivalent 'gauge' which I think is 18 and 16. In repairs though some people like to use a thicker metal, but for the little that I do myself, I tend to stay with 1.2mm

Like Nick, my money's on it being a Mini and Moke World shell.
Take a look here (bottom of page) . Wheels are the same too.

Looking at the photos, i'd say you are right Nick. 

Thanks for solving that one.

I was watching a YouTube video from NFSA - National Film and Screen Archive , Australia and happenend to spot this Moke in the background... The You Tube film was Circa 1970.

Saw this Yellow Moke parked in the car port near my relations house in Bondi over the weekend.. What an apt car for the beach side !!
