I like the colour though. I should have taken a picture from the back: the spare wheel mounted on the rear was the original and probably half the size of the others. I can’t see how that would work if there was a flat...

Close enough Shaun. (AT-ST Walker)

Was built as a playhouse a few years back.

Now besides the A38 upsetting the locals !

From the front number plate it would seem to be a California car which seems to indicate that it does rain there sometimes.

This is a puzzle.
Even if you think you know it I'd be very surprised if you were right.
Any guesses?

Well done Dean! That's so close I must let you have it.
A now defunct firm called Brabazon made it from a 405 saloon after shortening the chassis to that of a 404 (I don't know why either)
They made a very tidy interior and even reduced the diameter of the signature Bristol steering wheel in view of the addition of power steering.

They then put in a new engine to replace the original 2 litre Bristol unit.
