MJW #269 - Mystery 2
« on: February 03, 2011, 12:06:33 PM »
The second one I have no idea who did this or what it is called.
One point on offer if you can tell me which country this car comes from and which make it was based on.

I'd love to know who/why this was done to this car.
It's not a common Ford/Austin etc........as far as I understand (which is not very much!)

Larch-lap fencing, Lucas electrics, big wheels, short wheelbase - is that a Singer at home in there?

:doh: I've just realised it's right hand drive so obviously not South American.

From the British Isles then?

It's British, not a Singer base but another popular UK car.........
(ps - don't forget I have no idea who built it - only what the base car is)

Sorry - thought it was not based on a popular model. OK, let's start with small things. The side lamps are ex Morris Minor 1954-61, so maybe Morris Minor?

Not quite as popular as a Morris but more popular than a Singer (if that makes sense!)

Building something like this would be easier if there's a chassis to build on.  So is it Triumph Herald based?

If I remember rightly this is based on an MG chassis, TC or TD...

Not Triumph based but it is based on an MG.
A point for Barrett.
I going to promote this to the Pros now in case they know more - another point is on offer for more information.

I'm placing this one in the BH.
Another point may be awarded to anyone who can come up with more information.
Until then........
