At the risk of being very, very wrong......I would like to suggest a Sunbeam Talbot 10 / 2-Litre, around 1938-1948. (My fertile imagination dreams of it being an MG Y Type!)

Did Austin 7 have the distinctive louvre combination on the bonnet?

The 3rd car is a Sunbeam Talbot

I wonder if that bonnet even belongs to that particular car. The profiles do not seem to match.

Could very well be the case.
A 20's Austin 7
With a missing bonnet

But any leads about the car which came with such a bonnet?

In my view i think its original bonnet went missing and the one in the picture seems like an attempt to fabricate a replacement.

Hello Sir,

It would not have been worth the labour to fabricate the particular bonnet , as , when the car was junked body parts were more easily available.

Most probably it is an Austin 7. All I am sure of at the moment is that this is a 20's car, the engine does not have the Austin script on the block and the bonnet has a distinctive design.

An Austin 7 is a nice restoration project.

But - for me - it would be more interesting to first find out if it is something other than an Austin and equally interesting to try to trace which car came with that bonnet design.

Regards
