The shape of the front of the car is similar to early De Dion cars but I am talking 1902 or such. Not much later.

Something like this.

In those days the well to do had the body built to their own specification but the front bonnet over the engine would usually remain the same and was supplied by the chassis maker.

Hi, the top Body Builders live in Sydney and make the Royal Coaches. My friend Peter Hamilton and his mate William James Frecklington built the Diamond Jubilee Coach. Peter took 4 years to make the 4 lamps on the Coach. Regards Ray

Great stuff and photos to boot! Ray, you take great photos of things we all like!

Check out Bonhams--the have specialized auto sales plus motorcycles in GB annually. Some terrific autos. One of the BIG English houses sold some or Sir George Daniels favorite cars (check google) a few years ago.r
