The "guess-what-car" game


#5624

were still quite far off.

it’s not a Morgan, Bristol, Allard, AC, MG, Jaguar, or Triumph, just to narrow it down.


#5625

It’s an Austin Healey Sprite.


#5626

that’s about as far away as any guess has been.


#5627

Time for questions.

Production model or prototype/extremely small number?


#5628

it was a low volume production car, and it shares the mechanicals with something very mundane


#5629

Mini engine, no?


#5630

no


#5631

Hint: it runs an engine that was first introduced in the 1930’s


#5632

ok, time for a bigger expansion on 2 previous clues.

The car is Ford Popular 103E based.


#5633

Morris Minor 1000?
Edit: Nope, Engine is too new.
Could the Engine be the Ford Sidevalve?

I thought you said it wasn’t a kit car man?


#5635

that’s my bad on two counts. firstly, i was referring to a modern, retro style kit car, so wording there was 100% terrible. and 2, i honestly didn’t think a re body constituted a kit car.

really sorry, guys :cry:


#5636

Don’t worry men.


#5638

This had a couple of possible model names so I’ll take either of them.


#5639

Allard P4


#5640

Nah the rank Lexus is merely a distraction to prevent google images from finding the answer I was after which was “Morrison’s Large Steak Pie” in a 70s disco hall.

Your go sir


#5641

ohno


#5642

I’m sure I’ve seen this car before but I don’t think I’ve ever heard it’s name.


#5643

Is it a Bond Bug with 4 wheels? Webster.

Edit: Or just a white Bug but I figure possibly more obscure.


#5644

Yes, WMC Bug, Webster Motor Company kit car.
