So much better than a shrunken stile, without a Gordon, that is just a shoe scraper

I think it looks more like a P50 limousine.

They are not invacars.    Rather used as shopping/ neighborhood vehicles in often closed communities, as in retirement centers.
Most were made in or near Long Beach California.
I have a low mileage, never rusted original car that I bought here in Southern California about 5 years ago thanks to some one from this forum publicizing the advert.
I would consider parting with it for 2,500 GBP.
I also have an Electric Shopper that is distinguished by a more curvilinear design.
