In the 1940s-1960s several coachbuilders created "estate cars" / "shooting brakes" on luxury cars.
Here's a partial snapshot of one, and I am trying to guess the original car from the rear wheel valances, but without success. Sorry it's a poor photo.
Not an Austin Sheerline, is it?
It could be. The angle of the rear wheel valance is about right.
A further clue is the inclusion in the valance of access to a petrol
filler. An unmodified Sheerline has a (admittedly smaller) access hatch
for a fuel filler in roughly that position.Loading Image...
The coach builder would modify the body, but that would not normally
include moving the petrol tank, so the access hatch would have to be in
a very similar position.
