This is a Claudel Hobson carb I bought a while back. I was looking for an AZP, but when this was described as a BAZ I assumed it was a typo and bought it anyway. I have nicknamed it the Santa Claus Carb for obvious reasons!
I know why it's multi-coloured, it came from a college where it would have been used to demonstrate/teach students.
Interestingly the face would normally have four screws to hold it on, this has only two and the other two have been carefully blanked. Again it would normally have four bolts holding top to bottom, but this has only two with the other two carefully blanked. Why? To make it easier for the students to disassemble?
It's missing the bolt that goes underneath the idle jet but apart from that it's complete.
The other mystery for me is what would it have been on originally? The top half is identical to a Sunbeam 3-litre (Twincam) AZP, I have a pair of those for my project.

Can you or someone you know please help identify the make/model/year of this car? The photograph was taken in Wisconsin (USA) and the car is presumably an American make. I have not yet found any vehicles that match the curvature of the rear door, but my identification skills for cars of this era are unremarkable.
Thank you! Jason
Author: Gaute Sunday, 28 August 2016Photo from a long gone hot summer of 1915... Norway. Picture of my great, great aunt and her unknown friend. The plate shows the number A563 (Oslo), but I can't find any info before 1922 - and then this number are clearly placed at another car. So, have anybody a clue what car we see here?
