It looks for all the world like a cross between a Humber Super Snipe and a 1958 Studebaker President...I don't suppose it could be a derivitive of either...?

A 'piece', perhaps, but that is not the make or model designation.  ;)

Esthetically, perhaps; I don't think there was any manufacturer collaboration.

It reminds me of the Devrim, from Turkey...but I wonder if it isn't from India?

That's the simple Chinese character for "no".

Chinese, but not Eastern Bloc - Does that mean Taiwan? 

Or is it that China is so far east that it's west and not part of the Eastern Bloc from a US perspective?  If you see what I mean.
