    The more I look at it the more I can see some AC Cars in it which happens to have gone into receivership in 1966 before being sold. Used 6-cyl engines from the Ford Zephyr at some stage. Only problem is the grills don't come close

    The side vent looks like Zagato styling, while the front end and overall shape is like an Austin-Healey. I guess that the engine is a FFFFord, but I have no idea of the manufacturer.

    Yes they did but it looked more like an Alfa DOHC, and not like this one which looks either like a Jag or an Aston Martin engine.

    AC is not it, but the Zephyr engine was used in this............as well as the Jag motor, as FFFFFazda said.
