Mystery Car

Someone's suggested a Studebaker Commander. I don't think it is as that's too large, but the styling cues are all correct - so this is a European take on the Studebaker maybe?

Mystery Car

Someone on Facebook has just suggested a Wyvern which is a good shout. It has the falling rear line, lack of fins at the rear and the chrome trim things forward of the rear arches. But is the Wyvern just a bit too chunky for the car in the pic which looks quite slimline?

Mystery Car 2

split from “ the mystery car ” thread Anyone recognise the modern (for 1958) car driving away from the camera in this pic? It's 1958 post-war Plymouth, from a Plymouth historical Facebook group I'm on. The car looks familiar but I can't place it - I wondered Borgward Isabella TS Coupe, and we've ha...

What is this?

I think the V6 Coupes all had pre-engaged starter motors from new, unless anyone knows differently?

As Jim suggests, on the Coupe the engine-bay mounted solenoid in question was also an original fitment I think.

What is this?

Here you go.

I think this is original, the starter solenoid to the left of the bracket as you look. I've subsequently added a thermostatically-controlled rad switch & relay to the rear of the bracket as well:

Le Jog 2019

Thanks for posting these Mike - I'm envious :)

When will someone realise that a properly prepared SE5a would make a cracking, comfortable, reliable ride for an endurance event like this? I love it!

Le Jog 2019

Well, despite ticking one or two things off my bucket list this year, the full-fat Le Jog competitive event remains firmly un-entered. The 25th anniversary run starts this coming Saturday 7th Dec from LE, and this year the route appears to be sticking to the west coast of northern England before hea...

Mystery Car

A clever person has made this computer rendering www.3dengineers.co.uk/reverse-engineering/mystery-car-case-study/ It's amazing that this car has gained such wide publicity and yet it still remains unidentified. Especially as it appears to be so well designed and screwed together. Most one-off spec...

Will do, I'd love to get to some hill climbs with her - rallying is a unfortunately a game for men significantly better funded than I :lol:
£120 - so £60 each - for a great, full-day's sport for example: East Anglian Classic Rally :)

Yep, looking great Vic!

Don't forget to let us know if you take part in any events in 2020 so I can feature the car in the Rally column in Slice again :)

SE4 straight six for sale

From the relatively little I know of this car I would say it's on the button and ready to go. A cracking example of a rare car at an attractive price - someone buy it quick! Good luck with the sale David. Hope it's ok to post up a couple of photos here? Bowlas Lavender 1 - Cliff Porter.jpg Bowlas La...

Alternative Coupé register ;-)

It was a massive 50-acre redundant aluminium factory, I'm guessing somewhere in Cumbria or north Lancashire as it was Wigton MC's rally base.
