This obviously customized or custom built automobile is a real unusual little car. From studying these photos I get the feeling that there is a British convertible hiding under all of this.
The sheet metal and trim on the front end has the look of being narrowed and possibly of US origin. It appears that someone spent a lot of time on the front of this little car getting it looking good. The rear end seems to be a different matter, it has the appearance of being rushed and not as well worked out as the front. The top, if this is a convertible appears to be crudely done and the rear window treatment does not appear to be moveable.
All in all a big mystery and our only clues are the UN on the trunk and the back of the photo has writing that lists Earl Patrick and a date of Nov. 21, 1950. Can any of our readers shed any light on this little odd ball ?
