The first and second generation Singer Gazelle was an Rootes group sedan/estate/convertible that was built on a shared platform with the Hillman Minx.

The Gazelle was not imported to the USA in any significant quantities, and the seller supposes that there are fewer than a dozen of these things on the road in North America. However, there is an active owners club in the US and Canada that can help with sourcing parts.
