Unidentified British Car?

Unidentified British Car?

We have received these photos from USA advising "  Unidentified British Car?  Here are some shots of a body only I rescued in Los Angeles short while ago.  Alloy body, mixed wood and steel body frame, steel front and rear wings - no bonnet, radiator, frame, engine etc Would be most thankful if someone could possibly make an ID!"

Our wise sages have not come up with anything so far.  Perhaps not a British car? Seems LHD unless (smallish) cutout on lower right dash panel is place for steering column. Numberplate on wrong side, and the number could be French (75/Paris)? Remnants of, or location place for, an owners plate on dashboard by the speedo/rev. Unusual fuel filler cap but could be a 'Bonora' as on MGs. Non British air vents on scuttle. Some French sports car kept RHD until WW2.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Looking for a prewar hearse for my Dad

Saturday, 22 April 2017


I have just come across your latest email circulation in my Dad's emails.

My Dad who was a prewar car fanatic sadly passed away last week and I would love to find a prewar hearse for his final journey. Do you know of any that would be able to help in my quest? We are based in the Stockport area, near Manchester.

Thank you so much in anticipation of your help!
