OK - to win this one you need :

- Name of the car, or maker
- Full name of the "Nation" that made it
- The method of construction of the body (unusual)
- The engine type (also slightly unusual)

Go for it guys.

4parts correct is pretty tough from this side of the pond! If I get 1 out of 4, will I get a correct confirmation on that?

I'm not referring to my car books in the spirit of just honestly going for it out of my head.

Ford Consul, Hillman Manx

Great Britian


at least partial aluminum body or alloy

V-4?

OK a clue - not British (as if...), and not a monocoque - see we have civilisation here

Well, from what little is there, it looks like a Trabant to me.
Weren't they built all over in eastern european countries? Let's say Czechoslovakia as a guess there.
Method of construction? I vaguely recall them having something odd here and not being well made, but no idea what it was. Lets guess both steel and aluminum causing galvanic corrosion.
Engines were 2-strokes, weren't they?
