Not one of the more common British sports cars .

Probably a fibreglass DIY job with Austin Seven wheels and likely a Ford 1172cc engine. Looks like an early Rochdale.

Not sure about this one yet. Best guess at the moment is something like Ashley (along the lines of http://www.ashleysportiva.zoomshare.com/3.html ) or a body from people like Abbotts of Farnham. Could be eg Ford Consul based for size as well as the usual Ford Pop oily bits. Not a Peerless or Warwick which had straight wing lines.

Front bumper looks like that used on the Swallow Doretti (admittedly without overriders) but the grille and windscreen are different.

Not a Doretti, and no obvious Allard match (although Palm Beach gets close). Interesting curved screen - where did that come from - Cresta PA??? And stumbled across this reference - http://www.fordspecial.webspace.virginmedia.com/index.html - I don't think it helps here, but is fascinating.

It has the rear end very similar to the Swallow Doretti http://slatford.co.uk/Car%20Pictures%20Pages/Doretti.htm , and another car quite similar (concerning the front) is the 1958 Allard Grand Turismo http://www.carsaddiction.com/files/cars/57__Gran_Turismo.jpg .

It looks like those Glasspars or Woodills, by which I mean it looks like too many fiberglass cars. If the chassis is British, then what is it? MG? Jaguar?

More and more, I believe this is based on a Triumph.

I keep coming back to this and thinking it must be IDable, but get nowhere. I still think the windscreen is distinctive enough for someone to recognise it ....

I think sTwo nailed it with the Woodill guess. They were available as kits as well as factory production models,
There's an unbelievable amount of variants for a limited production body.

Google Image search: Woodill Wildfire. (Sorry i couldn't create a link)

I've never seen a reference to Woodills being sold in UK. Nor a Woodill picture with a windscreen like this. Sadly, I think it has to stay unknown, but it's still bugging me ....

Windscreen similar to Peel P1000 , body not identical but were there other versions of the Peel P1000 ?-

I think that's the best suggestion so far. Shape looks right, and I can believe things like grille, side trim and wheels were variable. Found a book one-liner that 150-ish made 1956-58, no picture.

The only possible connection I can find is that the Cheetah from Watford Sports Cars Ltd looks to use the same wrap-round screen (possibly from the rear screen of an Audax Rapier/Minx?).
