I know beauty is said to be in the eye of the beholder, but i'm afraid this one is too ugly for it's own good.
I wonder what they fed it on, but does anyone know what it is?

They robbed a SAAB apprentice's design portfolio for that one, but then again, what were the comments at the time?

My guess is a post-war Aprilia; there are some styling cues that point to Boneschi as the coachbuilder, but I can't find this particular car, so I could be wrong...

Please don't let it be an Aprilia.

If it is they forgot to provide the holes on top of the wings to allow removal of the front suspension damper rods.

I quite like it. And I'll get me coat.....

Have a look at the hubcaps - do they look Aprilia to you? As for access to the front suspension damper rods I'd think that the bonnet would be covering those access panels?

What's that (tricolore?) pennant sticking out of the bonnet. Maybe Guy's coat??

I've just been told by the person who sent me the photo, that it's the work of Stablimenti Farina

You would think that, having gone to so much trouble over the details, they would have ensured that the wipers were parallel!

Sorry, Ben, it's a 1946 Aprilia - here's another one:

The split-screen was pretty much up-to-date - curved glass was very much a feature of the future; think RMA Riley, Standard Vanguard, XK 120 Jaguar and split-screen Morris Minor, for example. Most Yanks featured the split-screen, whereas most of continental Europe, including the Aprilia and Ardea, still had a flat single-pane screen.
