    Default Mystery car - any ideas?

    anyone have any ideas on this? Sorry about image quality - it was almost dark, taken from a moving car

    2 door, knock off hubs, almost pillarless, right hand drive but seen in France. My best guess is a Chapron Delahaye, but it is pure speculation.

    From the photos it looks a bit too small to be a Salmson...

    Something about it makes me think Eastern European or perhaps German. The front looks very similar to an FSM Syrena 103 but the rear is completely different.

    Front view. I loaded Salmson photos with originals to make comparison of detail easier.

    There is a Salmson in white in the area which is (or maybe was...) for sale https://www.tradeclassics.com/for-sa...rance/salmson/

    The reason it looks smaller (particularly from the front) is that Mrs Wiz took the photo in the wing mirror
