Ford ? Yes

Prototype? not sure.

I would say more of a concept by a coachworks well known to a few TC members based on a popular mid range ford.

Slightly thrown by the West Country reference. I was thinking Italian, though not sure why.

Lee, you could also have had Dorset and Hampshire, with Hereford to make the set. But itis certaily none of those.

A lot of american motors from the late 30's have this kind of styling with suicide doors, split screen and long side vents eg Chevy coupe. It can be difficult to tell a Chevy, Ford, Buick etc apart.

Is it a US car or should I be thinking more European?

This side of the atlantic, with only a fleeting mention of America in it's history.

A lot of cars / countries had suicide doors from the 20's through to the late 40's and beyond.

As to the west country hint, the company I refer to used this as a basis for their first car.

The cabrio version has doors hung at the front,

Your all going to kick yourselves.

Another hint, you could say this model was produced in three countries in one name or another.

Correct again

The Bristol 400 and the 327 are very similar
I have tried to post photos of each and a ref to wikapedia but something is playing silly B's

Try again

1938 BMW 327-28



1947 Bristol 400



During the 1930s, Eisenach was the centre of BMW’s automobile manufacturing. In 1945, Eisenach was occupied by United States forces. However, the wartime allies had already agreed that Thuringia would fall within the Soviet occupation zone. BMW's automobile factory in Eisenach was not fully destroyed, and assembly of the 327 resumed. Clear production figures are hard to obtain, but many of the 327s surviving with collectors into the twenty-first century were post-war products. After the war, it became clear that the Soviets would not return the Eisenach factory to BMW. BMW-branded automobiles produced between 1946 and 1951 were therefore being produced outside the control of BMW headquarters in Munich. This cause a protracted dispute concerning title to the BMW brand and other assets, but in 1952 it was determined that Eisenach-produced models such as the 327s should be badged as EMW (Eisenacher Motoren Werke) rather than as BMW (Bayerische Motoren Werke). EMW changed their badge from BMW's blue and white roundel to a red and white roundel.

It is not clear how many of the post war 327s were branded as BMWs and how many as EMWs, but probably more than 500 were produced with one or other of the badges.

the 400 was the last car Bristol used a steel body on

Also I prefer the BMW lines.
