That looks like an unusual version of a car that is familiar to me. 

Same here!  Strange modification.  Looks very much like a lot of styling cues taken from a lot of similar cars.  When all is said and done, I am pretty sure I know what the chassis is.

I know it's a real car, but it looks like someone's photoshopped the top of a black car onto the body of a different make of red car. Do I like it? No.

 I'll give you the answer on this quiz:  1958 - 1964 Porsche Teram Puntero  

This car is based on the chassis of the IMAE Justicalistas Gran Sport. In 1955 the new Argentinian leadership imposed by the de facto national government gave the IMAE assembly plant to  Teram. This is how they ended up in the hands of Teram 144 chassis of Justicialistas Gran Sport, which could only be sold if they were given a new image and identity. What followed was really curious. Somehow the Teram people convinced the Porsche to license the brand and some design features of their sports cars, so that the Gran Sport Justicialistas ended up being recycled as a kind of Creole version of the Porsche 356. While the horn and the aesthetics - made locally in fiberglass - strongly copied the styling of the 356, the internal elements (seats, instruments, engine, etc.) were 100% Porsche - imported directly from Germany -, which gave it an unusual aura quality for the local market.

The correct answer were sent in by:

No amount of searching on 356 variants/ assorted keywords etc. found this monster. Must have wasted 5 hours on it. Most frustrating. If only I had added "Argentine" to my search.... it would have been in the top row of returns!

Yea, same here!  I could see the Karrmann ghia design in the rear end and Bug top on a 356 nose, but got nothing even close with any of those keywords.  This was a tough one.  Time for an easy one.  Maybe a 69 Mustang coupe! 😆
