Looks to me like an altered Cunningham

Whatever it is, it is on a Ford chassis. You can see the transverse front spring and the curved front axle and those big hubcaps would suggest it has the large Ford bolt pattern.

I know that, but it's not this car, it's this one:

There were a lot of 1-off, or custom build sports cars in this era in the US. Clearly not a factory built car such as the Kaiser mentioned and clearly on a Ford chassis, which was customary on the custom sports specials built in the early 1950's

I think it looks an awful lot like a Connaught L2 -- but the bulges along the sides don't match.

The Chuck Tatum Special, a handcrafted sports car built by Chuck Tatum with a body designed and built by Jack Hagemann.

If it is the 1953 Chuck Tatum Special, bodywork is different from any photo I can find online eg http://www.fantasyjunction.com/cars/1150-Tatum-Special-302%20c.i.%20GMC%20Engine , http://www.sportscardigest.com/chuck-tatum-interview-and-profile/ , http://www.conceptcarz.com/vehicle/z15020/Tatum-Special.aspx etc - a well known period special which survives. However it was continually modified, so this could have been one of its stages - any matching photos?

See Hemmings Auto Blog "Forgotten Fiberglass" referencing the film, it would appear that it is actually the Bohman Special. There is an article on it in today's Hemmings. Edit 2nd February 2012.

@jfs - dedicated sleuthing reaches its target! Seems to be a 1951 car for the film. One of 8 built so a new make - Link to "blog.hemmings.com" , Link to "blog.hemmings.com" .
