    I wish I had a better picture. At first glance that's what I thought too, (sunbeam) but its bigger. Look at the space between the rear wheel opening and the door.

    I was gonna say..."Get Smart, you can't stump the Hamb.", 'cause at first I thought it's an Alpine.

    But wait...I don't think it is.

    Looks like a cross between an Alpine, Datsun B2000 & '57 T-Bird.

    Close. It's an Alfa Romeo 2000 Touring Spyder. [​IMG]

    Built by the coachbuilder Touring from 1958-1961. The six cylinder 2600 Spyder didn't have the vents on the front fender or the twin scoops on the hood.

    I'm thinkin Giulietta because of the door line at the back of the doors. Spyder is straight, Giulietta is slanted like the original; pic.

    The 2000 and 2600 Spyders are big 4-seaters that are more grand tourers than sports cars.

    The two-seater Giulietta is a Pininfarina design.

    Yep, the 2600's were an Italian ( E type ) XKE, with six cylinder hemi head engines. These were much larger than the Giuliettas, but began to rot 'bout as fast !:eek:

    Guiletta Spyder. I had one, a major POS. four cyl twin overhead cams. Timing spec was at 6000rpm. Leaning over engine was exciting

    Hmm?? I was thinking from the front
    end design and grill shape, maybe a
    "one-off", factory prototype or concept
    car for a proposed, but never put into
    production, super-compact, two-seat,
    Edsel sports car to be called the "Edselette"
    and intended to compete in the market
    with Ferrari, as part of Edsel's also,
    proposed but never, ever produced
    1961 model line-up"!!:eek::eek::D

    Hey,

    Alfa Romeo 2000 102 Series- built from 1958-1962

    With less than 7000 vehicles built over the five years of production, said to be least successful postwar design.
