Coor! this looks a tough one!

Is it a one off car? Possibly 40's? Maybe American?

Built on a 1936 chassis, rebodied in 1947

This was his last, and most daring, design.

So yes was a one of, still exists today

And yes that is gold plating.

It is a Delahaye roadster either that or a very rare Bugatti.

Sorry neither a Delahaye or Rare Bugattti.

The company that made the chassis is still in production.

If still in production, my next guess is a Rolls Royce or Bentley chassis with a one off coach-built body.

Rolls Royce

That's the easy part

I could ask what coachbuilder but do you know the model.

BTW I had to edit out the Spirit of Ecstasy or it would have been a give away.





RR ???? 1939 re bodied 1947

I thought I had saved the website but can't find it at the moment

Mulliner Park Ward is the only RR coachbuilder I know the name of so I'm guessing them!

Coach enamel!

The modern re-invention of this is the famous Rustoleum $50 paint job.

oil based paint, rollered on a coat at a time and sanded down between coats.

No in those days it was cellulose brushed on using a retarding thinner, for those old enough Belco was probably the most famous

I would guess its styled by Bertone judging by the look. Alfa or Lancia concept from the 70's? There are a few weird creations from then.

That pic made it easier, there is a prancing stallion missing from the grill! The car is a Ferrari rainbow concept from 1976.

Well done Richard

The camera angle of the first photo, from a russian website, makes the car look smaller.

I edited the other phot as it would have been like posting the name of the car all over it.

Roger.
