It took a little research to find it, but I found it. For some reason, I flashed on the right manufacturer right off. Harry, whether or not I get it right, I ALWAYS have fun with this game!

well... I've found about half a dozen cars that I missed in previous Auto-IDs with today's search. I guess I'll find this one with next weeks search - when it is too late!

The car in the picture is a 1957 Volvo P1900. The car was only made for two years (1956-7) before it was discontinued. Sort of Volvo's version of the Corvette.

I'll tell you how close I was to getting this right:   Not at all. Nowhere near. Wouldn't have guessed Volvo in a million years.

I didn't know it was a Volvo but I spotted the hood hinges on the front edge of the grille opening and figured it was a fiberglass body, after that it was just a google image search for fiberglass cars of the 1950's.

 

I found the hiSTORY on this quite interesting.
