That took some finding, these are getting harder! I believe it's a AC Cobra 427 Willment/Ghia Coupe
Sorry, you already got my one and only shot of it, I am only human, after all ..
Yes! The body was originally fitted to a Fiat 8V chassis. John Willment stuck it on a 427 Cobra chassis for a bit of fun, got bored and sold it on
Having just seen it, I love it
I think the Tatra may be a good shout @docjohn for the canal side car. Tho if it was a two door I’d be going with @Meltman shout. Good to research a make I’ve never heard of anyway.
No, Cruella Deville drives a red Citroen C1 and lives two doors from me. Horrible cow.
A mate from school had one in the early 80s. Looked loads better than that one but it still ended it’s days in the scrap yard
That should actually have been a "Ganz" in my book ......
I thought at first it was a one off body on a Trojan Utility but it would have had solid rubber tyres, so then I thought it was based on a Morris Commercial. If you search that then it comes up with this 1934 Duple bodied promotional vehicle.
Not sure on the car but the plane is a Handley-Page H.P.45
It was one of eight H.P.42 and 45's built for Imperial Airways and was the biggest airliner in the world when introduced
I stole the pic from Twitter, where it was labelled as a 1934 Morris commercial.
I will bow to your far superior knowledge!
I can only tell it’s an aircraft of some sort lol.
And it's parked up just south of Croydon airport control tower.
The grill is a giveaway. It's a Studebaker Champ from the early '60s. Nowadays it would be promoted as a corporate look, but then it was just expediency in using the Studebaker Lark front panels. Just another take on the Aussie Ute I guess.
The roofline is very distinctive, which is the giveaway.
Separate names with a comma.
