Does the car have to be a specific model when producing the play?
No, as long as it's from the period (the 1970s) the play is set in, it does not have to be a specific model of car. Within the play-text, it is defined as a 'small popular car'. For example, in the original production in 1976 it was a Morris Minor and in the Stephen Joseph Theatre in the Round's 1996 revival, it was a Mini Cooper. It just has to be a common car of the period.
