Can you iden­tify this mys­tery sports car?

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

Some fel­low clas­sic en­thu­si­asts and I are try­ing to iden­tify a ve­hi­cle and we won­dered if Clas­sic Car Weekly read­ers could help and per­haps pro­vide de­tails of the car’s sub­se­quent his­tory?

The en­closed photo shows the car with a friend, Bar­bra. Sadly she can­not help as she now suf­fers with de­men­tia.

Sev­eral sug­ges­tions have been made, in­clud­ing a Berke­ley, but this was dis­missed due to the slop­ping bon­net.

A fea­ture in your sis­ter mag­a­zine Prac­ti­cal Clas­sics re­cently showed a Peer­less GT be­ing re­stored by Gary Stret­ton, which ap­peared to be from the same pe­riod and with sim­i­lar but not iden­ti­cal lines, and again, there are doubts that Bar­bra’s car was a con­vert­ible Peer­less – un­less it was a one-off spe­cial. If any reader can help solve this mys­tery once and for all, please write care of CCW.

That’s Bar­bra be­hind the wheel, but do you recog­nise the car?
