GLB 684 = Aug 1941 to Jan 42 so unusual for a car in WW2 - would have been official/government use. First thought was Prefect Drophead Coupé, but doesn't match well - flimsy hood, wrong door line (sorry jfs :whistle: ). Instead I think it's our first Prefect Tourer - only 1028 made between 1939-40.

There's only one small snag...........

It's an Austin Eight or Ten, look at the badge on the speedometer and at the top of the grille, and no separate sidelights on the Ford.

The subject picture has the vertical vents so we may go nap on the Eight.

Sorry!

Ford speedometer for comparison, see "Enfo" logo at bottom.
