    Morgan +4 or 4/4.

    Very common... many in the US even. Have seen several in Colorado.

    (Most people know Morgan due to their 3-wheeled 'cars'.)

    I would argue that the traditional wood chassis is more widely known than the three-wheeler, but yes the three-wheeler is a signature offering as well.

    All the best,
    Andrew.

    Perhaps... but for the first 30 years or so of their existence they only built 3 wheelers.
    That's what I think when I hear 'Morgan'.

    I know this is way out of left field, but this couldn't be some version of a Turner special Hillman Imp could it?

    Is anyone familiar with this thing?

    It appears to be Citroen-based and probably a 3-wheeler. The stamping at the top of the grille looks like "GD". While similar, the stork(?) on the fender is not a repurposed Hispano Suiza badge, but it could be some kind of reference to Alsace or Georges Guynemer.

    Considering the headlight situation, this little thing was probably not something to be out and about in after dark.

    I know there have been countless Citroen-based creatures like this, but I'm curious if anyone knows who built this one and what it was called.

    Thanks in advance.

    Given the size of it, I wonder if it's one of those garage projects utilising a WWII aircraft engine on the chassis of an old firetruck or something along those lines.

    All the best,
    Andrew.

    Looks a bit like an Iso Rivolta. But this is something else. Italian design, us engine?

    Anyone know what this car is? I took a screenshot off of my Instagram. Couldn't find any other info from the post though. It looks French or english.

    Perhaps even Spanish from the hastags?
