Others titles (I think) for France and/or Belgium (part of Belgium with french language) "Le Demon De La Route"; for Italy "Bolide Rosso" and for Spain and/or Central/South America "Carrera de Hidalgos" (something like "Race of Knights")

The Glasspar G2 shot is indeed a Glasspar G2. FYI, the Woodill Wildfire is also a Glasspar with cosmetic alterations made for Woody Woodill. My father designed and built these cars at his factory (Glasspar) in Costa Mesa, California, in the early 50's. The comment about the transverse leaf front suspension likely being Ford is also correct, since these cars were made to easily fit a shortened Ford chassis. There is a G2 at the Smithsonian that is worth seeing - if you get the chance.

@windgooroo: Do you know of any Glasspar or Woodill which was RHD - see /vehicle.php?id=100570 for why I'm asking. All ideas welcome.

Tony Curtis designs, builds and races his own fuel-injected sports car in this action melodrama that was written with him in mind.Good racing footage but sadly Tony doesn't get to say " Yonda lies the castle of my Fadda ".
