And here is the only pic of the car as she is today which he sent to me. No idea if the car was made roadworthy or is just a display piece. He would ask the next time he goes there.

What could it be? Chrysler, Plymouth?

It looks like a 1938 Dodge D 8 sedan. The Plymouth of the same year had a different bonnet, side chrome fairing. This one matches with those of the Dodge. Some other chrome ornaments from below and above the front grille are missing though.

Look like a Ford Consul Mk1

Stumbled upon this ad few days back. The logo left me puzzled, so I asked around and did some reading (initially I thought it's a Peugeot logo )

The Select belonged to the previous owner of the bungalow. The bungalow has since been converted to a cafe. The current owner hasn't moved the car - lawn ornament, probably. :(

Other than a couple of rusting Beetles , also spotted a Fiat 1100 Station Wagon (not to be confused with the Premier Padmini Safari). This was a proper Italian model.
