My dad had one of these. The hood looked slightly different. On his you could roll the front part of the hood back to about the front seat backs and then fold it back down on a frame if you wished.
I really liked that car (light blue cfl617!) and have never seen one since

On site was the Austin A10.
Your steering wheel is on the right.
