While we are looking at odd balls, can any one throw more light on this, it seems Amercan pre or post WW2 and has some Ford in it, pictures taken in France.
Do a Google on Matford. It is a French joint venture between Ford and Mathis in Strasbourg from 1934-1939

MATFORD. Built in britain as a Ford V8 Pilot. and coincidently the flat head V8 engine powered the GPUs that started the Spits and Hurries during the Battle of Britain.
Thanks Henry. Nice one.
