Frazer Nash Cabriolet

I saw this car at the Coys International Historic Festival meeting at Silverstone in July 1999 amongst the Frazer Nash Car Club vehicles. I didn't recognise the car as one of the standard Frazer Nash models and I see from the Frazer Nash Postwar Production record that the car is a Cabriolet model, originally delivered to an Alan L Marshall in November 1950. The chassis number is 421/100/116 and it's described as a 'Special long wheelbase car. Fritz Fiedler's "dream car".' Fritz Fiedler joined Frazer Nash from BMW in 1947 and was responsible for the development of the post-war Frazer Nash before returning to BMW 3 years later. The Cabriolet has apparently got a 1971cc Bristol engine.
