These two pictures were taken in the summer of 1953. The Jag is readily identifiable and the "big" car is known to be a Cadillac convertible with a custom(ized) body. The little one in the middle, however, is something of a mystery. Based on some other information, it is possible that it is a Siata, perhaps an 1100cc or maybe a 750cc, as it ran in a class with the 1250cc MG TCs and TDs.
Can anyone identify the little beastie?

It does not look like any of the Siata's I looked at in Google Images including this one which seems fairly typical of the make, and in this photo the #87 is a Siata 750.

I believe I have answered my own question. The car appears to be a Bandini 1100 Sport, not a Siata, based on the info on the Etceterini site.

No worries the Bandini certainly looks a closer fit :up:
