Initially, only sedans were produced, but later a convertible was also manufactured, and a total of about 5,500 units of both types were produced.
BTW absent bumper is because the car pictured above was a bashed up military staff car.
That was indeed a good one. Many don't know that Nissan has been manufactureing cars from way long back.

ID 821 is a second generation Renault Clio 5 door hatch.

Please refrain from posting images like this and post images of the complete car instead.

Renault Clio 5 door hatch is correct.

Karl : The petroleum magnate, Nubar Gulbenkian's three Hooper-bodied 1956 Rolls-Royce Silver Wraiths, had dark fenders and vertically-stacked double headlamps.

These eccentric cars had an additional speedometer
installed in the rear passenger space, so Mr. Gulbenkian could see if his chauffeur was speeding.

But even those Silver Wraiths did not have faired-in front wheels, like CyCarConsulting's submission.

Yes, he did have more than one, but none could have been less graceful than the one I pictured above . The faired in wheels are present on this one.

Not suggesting it was a Rolls, just thought I'd point out something equally obscure and ugly, for educational purposes only

ID:822 appears to be a Praga Super Piccolo and the production year of this particular version (if that thing is not a special coachbuilt edition, I’m gonna… well, be very surprised) seems to be uncertain – usually proposed as sometime between 1934-36 in any case.

It surely is a cool find, CCC (and I thank you for it) but, again, somehow I don’t see this stylish baby roaming the streets of Prague back in the 30’s on a daily basis. The stock 1934 Super Piccolo units I’ve seen had a predictably plain look about them, so – unless you can whip out some much-needed extra info – expect another bashing from Ram.


As an afterthought, I’m not surprised it comes from Czechoslovakia – those weird headlights (although completely different) made me think of the flashy 1936-37 Škoda Popular Sport Monte Carlo for some reason.

You are correct sir! The company produced what they considered their first aerodynamic models in limited production between 1934-36. Although rare today, they were on the road.
