Our correspondent in Sweden, NMJ, has had the good fortune to see one of these. What is it?
This kind of thing is what you can see if you keep your eyes peeled when roaming around Sweden. It was behind glass, hence the reflections that are apparent in the image. There was an old-favourite of DTW parked nearby which I will show a little later on in the week.

My guess is that it’s an early 60s Bentley 2 door Coupe with the rare Mulliner bodywork.
I second ‘terjebjornstad’, I would also go with an early 60s Bentley S3 Continental. Although the lack of side strip is causing me some anxiety??
I see. I’ll await for a few more proposals before showing the full car.
Anyone else have a bid?
Spent a couple of interesting hours working this one out, but got beaten by the first poster I think! The square windshield at its top is the giveaway, and looked so early ’60s GM Chevy II. But the large expensive quarter vent window did not.
Here it is:
Yes, there’s that distinctive diagonal thingy running across the base of the quarterlight. I was thrown by thinking that the flanks had a particularly bulging curvature to them, which I now realise is the reflection of another car (next week’s mystery?)
There’s a frightening amount of intelligence hanging about this place.
Hang on, I haven’t got started yet.
This is very impressive!
What about a Bristol 408/409/410 with the chrome side strips removed?
Now that I have allowed a decent time for readers to put in their suggestions I’ll announce the result on Monday.
Sorry: I am a little busy. Results due soon.
Chrisward? Any bids?
Looks a bit like a 1960s Aston down the flanks, but the windscreen is too square. I would guess that it is British, or perhaps a British or Italian coach builder plying their craft on a British car. An outside bet would be an Italian marque. The rounded DLO suggests 1960s, but the square windscreen says late 60’s.
The suspense is killing me.
I’d forgotten about this.

Did I miss it? By the way, not the foggiest – my initial reaction was Bristol’, but then I thought the previous Toyota was a Lancia. I’m ni good at this (new Espace spotting asides).
