They're series 1 Familia Rotary Coupe (JDM R100) hubcaps. Same as what Aus delivered R100s had, but Aus cars had a 14" rim and cap, and JDM cars had 13". That's why they fit on the RX-3.

I can almost match that (shame it isn't a rotor but it's damn close!)

This is my old man with his Capella! It was the first good car he bought upon graduating uni as a schoolteacher. I'm not sure about the date but I'm guessing he'd be about 21 in this pic, making it 1976.
