I give up. Looks like a blast to drive. Reminds me of a TR-3 in my past.

Aston Ulster 40 - at a guess. I have a resin body of an old aston ulster rod, this reminds me of it.

Hi Phil,

What no clues.......

From it's colour, I would say it was French ?????
The side scoops look like a renault possibly an early Dauphin ??

Come on, give us a clue..

OK....... French with a Renault side scoop....

How about a "Renault 4cv Cabriolet Brissonneau et Lotz (1957)"

Something like that....
