In John's words this was a rescue job of a Durham Classic Police Car with bits missing and damaged paintwork. Its the 1941 Chevrolet Coupé. John added a sun visor and fender skirts, plus lots of other bits, and as the bonnet was a separate casting, decided to drop an engine in for good measure. The two tone colour scheme replicates that used by Chevrolet. Here's the photos.

Great work - I wonder where the engine came from?

John Ellis does amazing work.  I met him and spoke with him at length at a Brooklin function in the UK back in 2004.  He is a very friendly and humble man.
