I met Stirling Moss about twenty years ago in Germany. I was staying at a hotel north of Frankfurt and arrived back from work late one evening to find the car park full of very expensive historic cars. The next morning I bumped into him at breakfast and found out they were on the way to Monaco as part of some historic event. I always wished my father had been there as he was a big fan of his.

I think it's a 1956 Chevy. I was going to say '57 but I think those had a bit of a different front nose style. Pete

Well, from what I can see it's left hand drive. I don't Google and want to say Studebaker, or an early Lincoln Continental?

No, not that. Not from the USA. The company lost money on this car.
