Looks like it is just a parts car or donor car for a coupe to convert conversion.  An early one so a bit interesting, but with the flathead even slower than the typical North American MM 1000.  In agreement with Joe above, the Woody is probably more interesting.  I have owned both in the past and slowly doing a 1959 convertible for my wife. But another woody would have been a lot more interesting to me.

Had an MG1100 that made a great beater. Minor (particularly early ones) were so slow as to be dangerous.

Give me a Bug Eye with a 1275 swap any day. I have had a few over the years but unfortunately none for about 20 years now.  No great love for any of the FWD 1100's , even the fairly rare MG variant.  Not as bad as a Marina but along similar lines .

Many years ago in the 1970s there was a guy in LaJolla, California who put a Chevy 327 in a little woody, but you couldn't tell from the outside. That thing sure did HAUL!
