He says its a V-5........so a 1924 or 1925 series car...........dash looks modern as does the cockpit........is it real? or a rebody? No idea, but asking Mike K you will get your answer in five seconds flat. Couldn't find any photos of it on line.......since I have never seen any photos of it, and nothing published on line........best guess is new coachwork.

What bodywork is show in the video looks crude so I tend to agree.

Off HYW 50 in Sacramento close to Folsom in the early 1990s there was a dealer that had as one of his vehicles for sale a lime colored Cunningham roadster supposedly once owned by a famous boxer in the early 1900s. I think the car was a mid-1920s model. The asking price was high.   Anyone have an idea what happened to the vehicle? The showroom was closed down many years past and replaced with a furniture store.

Mr. Peter Cunningham's 1928 touring car leaving for the Smithsonian 4/1973

And here's what it looks like now in storage at the Smithsonian.   Looks the same except they touched up the paint on the front fender.
