There was an American made car that elicited a lawsuit from Rolls-Royce for infringement, regarding the radiator and shell. I do not recall the name of the car, but this may be it!

Moon, Elcar and Roamer all had RR-like radiator shells, but the car in this photo doesn't look like any of them to me. My guess is this is not an American auto.

Can you tell us more about this? My searching on www comes up blank, which probably means I am using the wrong search string.

A Velie ?

I think it's European and not a Velie.

The only one I can find was in 2015 when a company marketing kits to put a "RR grill" on a VW beetle was sued by RR.

 

The question is, when did RR trademark the three-dimensional shape of their grill and where?
