I'm unfortunately not going to be of much help either.
When I first saw the picture, the first name that popped to mind was Lenham...
The car certainly seems too small to be based on a Daimler Dart, Harrington Alpine or Trident Clipper.
But looking closer, I think Jim might well have nailed it with Ashley.

How about this one guys? A few mention of early reliant or Ogle designs were made. I'm stumped.
May I ask where you came across the picture? And would you mind if I used on

Kind Regards,

Stephen started this thread, at about the time that the thread started on Pistonheads, so I guess there's a link? I think there's only one known source for the photo, which is the book that Stephen mentioned earlier in this post, and illustrated a couple of posts later.

Personally I just think it’s a very well made home built special , latest thoughts on another forum are that it’s a FSO Syrena Sport , similar but not near enough .
