Not convinced as never seen one with door openings like an Aprilia, but I could be wrong Roll Eyes

Wheels too small. Isn't that a rear outboard brake drum I can see? No Aurelia if so.

The wing shape on the rear (suicide) door could be early '50s Italian. From the look of that door this thing is Steel-bodied.

The car is the famous post-war Studebaker of 1947-1952.

The picture comes from PHILIPPE LE MAO from the Facebook group "chasseur d'Úpaves" https://www.facebook.com/groups/211555468992356/267418020072767/?comment_id=267550796726156&notif_t=like
It is a studebacker sedan.
pillarless with rear wings like a B50 cab...does it have inspired italian designers in the 50's? who knows...

I do not think the Studebaker was pillarless. It was however regarded in America as the first truly post-war car in terms of bodywork, and would certainly have been well known by Italian designers.

I don't have any photos on my computer, but my mate Alex who owns http://www.classiccarcentre.ie/ had a 50's Studebaker a while back. He sold it back to the USA. If you search in the 'for sale' section, in the 'sold' area, there is a photo.
Another mate of mine started and finished the Peking/Paris a few years (2007) back in a Coupe version http://public.fotki.com/alabamaracingphotos/andyvannpekingtopar/andyvann007.html#media

To the best of my knowledge the Studebaker was not pillarless, but the doors were hinged front and rear closing on to a very slim pillar. One Italian coach builder was so inspired by the Studebaker design that they built what looks like a very poor copy. Unfortunately I have forgotten who it was. Does anyone remember? Incidentally, the Studebaker design is usually ascribed to Raymond Loewy but it was in fact done by Virgil Exner. He was employed by Loewy but did the design in his spare time directly for Studebaker without telling Loewy. He was consequently sacked by Loewy.
