    Talbot-Bristol, I believe.

    They were all mostly hand-built, and no two were exactly alike.

        Yes, it is quite similar to a '62-'64 GT Hawk type grille.....I wonder what model year this Talbot is?...(Who copied who?)

          That's a custom supercharged race MGA with a non-factory hard top. The intake scoop is also from the original MGA, just "moved" from its original location.

          More on it here, post 7991 and 7996.

            The rounded hood and the windscreen, and the general lines of the car resemble an MGA.

              Yes, especially those rear mud guards (fenders) look very MGish.

                Thanks. I knew it was a modified European car of some sort, but not entirely which make. Closest one I have seen in person with a Hawk-shaped grille opening was the one I posted above.

                    Anyone remember the custom Corvette known as "Harerazn"?

                      Looks to me, based on the windows and roof line that it is a Triumph spitfire GT. But they had a one piece flip front end. Oval hood looks like MGA.
