Spotted on the Road in Sweden

1-aP1020013Some of you with sharp eyes might have spotted this red beauty peeking out of its driveway in the Where in the World is Gumbo puzzle #6

That's why I waited until after the puzzle was over; I didn't want to identify Ystad, Sweden, as the location of the puzzle, and I didn't want to post this roadster without saying where it is. Now it's someone else's turn to tell me WHAT it is, because I plain don't know. I had a faint suspicion that it might be a kit-built, but no evidence.

Rather than a true kit car this may be a re-body of a production car. In some ways it resembles a Fiat 500 or 600 from the 1960s. Many companies made replacement bodies for these and other small cars. This could also be a modified Fiat Jolly body sans windshield and roof. The Jollys were Ghia re-bodies of Fiat 500s and 600s..

Many other coachwork builders also supplied after-market bodies. This is one that I haven't seen before.
