    They ran Austin engines and the body was fiberglass, so some design influences & stolen parts is a given...

    When fiberglass became common in the 60's anyone could pen a design on a napkin, slap it together in fiberglass, dump it on a basic chassis and be a sports car builder. In the UK loads did just that, so you get many cars looking much the same style with bits and pieces copied from other designers.

    This one has the Lotus nose, looks like Landrover indicators, hubcaps maybe 105E, rims- dunno and the rear with a fin, so early 60's ??? Can't think who had cars with rims with those many holes....(which may be 70's then ??) sorry, stumped.....
