What is it? Quiz #363

whatisit 363_470

Earlier posted as a 'mystery car' we were informed by the sender that he pulled your and our leg. It appears he was very much aware of which car this is. More than that he owns the car in perfect condition and is planning to compete it in the 2014 Mille Miglia. The crowd of children in the back plus the young lady are all six grandchildren of the owner. That aside we can asure you that it is no Hupmobile as earlier supposed by various of our well esteemed readers. It is an european made car of a well established manufacturer of family cars; and despite the crowd of children in the back seat it is considerably smaller than a Hup! We don't want to tell you a lot  more in order not to make things too easy.
