According John Price Williams 's book Riley : The Legendary RMs, FLM Panelcraft is also a ( strong ) possibility.


That's not what it says in my copy!

It reads:-

"There has been much speculation that it was done by a London firm FLM Panelcraft, or even Bertone, as it bears a resemblance to his Alfa Giulietta coupe. Neither coachbuilder has any claim to it" (My underlining)."

I have the luxury of most people here writing in my native language of English, so we are bound to get little misunderstandings occasionally. Please do not be offended at my pointing this out Franck. =)

And this 1957 Fiat 1900? Boano?

This car was the “service car“ in Lingotto and Mirafiori. It's a Fiat 1900 Boano.
Prof. Valletta used it to escort guests to visit the factories.

It´s the 1951 AFM 2.5 litre Prototyp Coupe.

"It seems that von Falkenhausen put his racing activities on the backburner for 1951, as he built two prototypes of a coupe and a roadster, based on a chassis similar to his monoposti and using Opel Super Six engines. One of these cars, shown in the picture, was ordered by the Brazilian government, but the plans came to a sudden halt and von Falkenhausen lost all the money he had invested into this project."

A miracle the socialist bodywork construction. A 4-wheeled Velorex. The "car "has originated about 1970.

Ein Wunder der sozialistischen Karosseriebau. Ein vierrädrige Velorex. Das Auto ist um 1970 entstanden.

Bloody hell... I have no clue who did this. He must have been a gifted panel beater, but I guess he was visually impaired...

There was an article on this car in the early nineties in - I think - Classic Cars mag.
The author had no idea who'd built it back then, but in a next issue a reader had a suggestion.
I can't remember which coachbuilder was mentioned, but it was a local and small one.


In the stabilimento Farina papers I have this Riley is a Stab Farina design.-... very similar to their Jowetts...

It looks as though the upper section rotates through 90 degrees to give a closed top. Never caught on? Not a million miles from certain form of disappearing top used on 30s Peugeots and recently revived by almost every manufacturer.

Looks American with the (retracting?) step-plates and the headlamps. On the other hand, the undertray and wings are more French, so I don't know. Very interesting.

Clive.
