    I have no idea about the early RWD stuff... probably a Citroen C4... as it's quite large.

    The problem is if you google Citroen C4 you will only get poogoe modern tediousness come up on the screen

    Looks like it started life as a '32 Rosallie ? Has had a grille mod not unusual for any kind of mod being Asia. Rims also look like they have come under the "wand" also

    They also made that body style as a C6. It is definitely Pre Rosalie as it carries the upright grille. Rosalie grilles were mildly sloped!

    It probably runs Jap mechanicals. There are Tractions converted as such and also as rear wheel drive.

    A worthwhile English language book about the early cars is The British Citroen by Bobbitt.

    I was there recently and saw the Citroen cars that hotel has as guest shuttles. They looked like they were all original mechanicals to me.

    I think an ac4 or ac6 no later than 1930 as it has the more upright style windscreen & grille, after that they were slightly sloping having said that SWMBO'd would remind me that I'm wrong more often than not. cheers Dave

    Here's a 1934 C6 for comparison. Still a bit different...

    Could it be a hybrid?

    Amazing that any of these have survived the upheavals in that area. Not many sheds either....

    What blew me away was the tyre pattern.

    I recall once seeing a Renault 4CV in Bangkok with Cambodian plates.

    Still maintain that it is a C6. I googled AC6G 1932 and guess what came up!

    Hard to argue with that Gerry

    Appears to suggest it is a 1928 model

    I cant get Greenbloods link in post #21 to open, but this should add to the confusion

    The below link reference indicates the two models were similar. The AC4 had four cylinder engine and AC6 a six cylinder engine. The six had a longer bonnet to accommodate the 6 cylinder engine. The AC4 was also manufactures in various different configurations.

    Yes I am aware of these differences! That is how is suspected that this was a 6 and not a 4 in the first place. Having said that I must say that I would love to own rather of those cars in the photos! They are both stately and elegant examples of their era!
