Sorry only time for a profile snap, but front and rear did not really give any clues.

Ok I am a bit unfair here because it is a modified car, but what was it based on?

Another good guess but nope. Disregard the front wings. The best clue is in the basically unmodified doors and rear below swage line.

Scratch that, rear below roof structure. Think 60ies, and I got distinctively italian vibes from the doors which turned out to be on target.

Believe it or not: It is based on an early Lancia Flavia coupe!

Not sure what is original, what isn‘t- but it looks pretty cool as it is

Lovely cars but rust was even worse than on the Jensen-Healeys
