By the Lithuanian Gazas.lt website:

The #57 is the sportscar in which Aloyzas Jorudas was killed at Vilnius in 1964, reportedly the first fatality in Lithuanian motorsport history.

 

What car? I've never seen before. Possibly was it a sportscar that he built by himself?

In the second photo on the line, they look very similar which prompts the thought that the cars were produced to fill a formula

Don't want to lose the thrust of this thread, but here is another car with a Victress 'glass body, again from the Forgotten Fiberglass site.

The Victress seems to be designed by a competent stylist which can't be said of the Lithuanian jobs
