Interesting thing, maybe just about 12-15 years ahead of its time. One of the directors of V-Eight / Cropredy (whatever they were called that week), was involved.

Yes, Paramount 1 1/2 litre with Ford Consul engine.

On the way to work this morning- they were not there yesterday. I missed out on the action last night, unfortunately.

Difficult to name the car I guess :D

Fiat 850 rear lights and Fiat wheels, so an Italian vehicle based on a rear engined 500 or 600 ?
