Hi Walt,

 

my hunch was right. It's a 1926 Panhard Razor Blade - Prototype Parade No 267

Seems there was a write up in Model Cars magazine March, 1968 about it. Two of them were made to 

compete.

Just a car guy blog has the full article and more photos if anyone is interested.

Hyman had J-365 for sale at Hershey a few years ago.  It has been modified in a few different ways and the color is horrible but it still cool.   I believe it went to Europe.

Another car that if fitted back to the way it was when displayed when new ( full tire covers and fender skirts) you would then see the car the way it was presented by the designers/builders. Not what was/is "trendy" now. Also I totally agree , the color is something akin to a Popsicle on a summers day.

Is this an original pic from 'back in the day'? Im half afraid to say I love it. If its original I think I have a new candidate for my top 10 list.

I would say yes, that swoopy fastback Renault is a photo from back in the day. Renault built some absolutely huge long wheelbase cars. Most never survived WWII , Reinastella and Nervastella were the longer/larger one and Vivastella and Monastella the smaller versions. The "stella" stood for star, and their elaborate color sales literature they issued is as spectacular as the cars. My current story/project I am finishing up now is about these and other cars at the European Motor Shows pre WWII era.  If I stay off this thread and stop looking long enough to ever get it finished!

Those fenders and overall styling bring to mind the two Hispano-Suizas bodied by Fernandez et Darrin for the Rothschilds.

Thank you for the information but the sites will not load without attaching information to my computer, and since it is all explained in French which I do not read well or speak I can not down load it.
