Is the mys­tery sports car an EB?

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - This Week -

I’m sure you’ve been in­un­dated al­ready, but just a note to say that the ‘mys­tery sports car’ in the photo in your Letters page ( CCW, 22 March) is an EB 50, built by Ed­wards Broth­ers of Stoke-on-Trent be­tween (from mem­ory) 1959 and ‘61.

The rea­son it looks so un­fa­mil­iar in the photo is that the vast ma­jor­ity of EBs, like all the other pro­pri­etary ‘spe­cials’ of the day, were built on Ford Pop­u­lar chas­sis. Some would have found a home on a Hal­i­fax or Watling chas­sis (of sim­i­lar length) and EB even of­fered its own lad­der frame, again of sim­i­lar di­men­sions to the stan­dard Ford item.
