Road - Puzzle revealed
Only one reader correctly identified last weekend's rare beast and it was of course, a Swallow Doretti. It would be unfair to call this a 'kit car' even though only around 200 were ever built in the early 1950s. It was designed by Frank Rainbow who had previously worked as a senior engineer at the Bristol Aircraft Company and used mostly Triumph running gear.
