On my recent holiday, of course I had to photograph this car.
The owner runs a taverna and uses it as decor. He called it an Austin 9 but I think I correctly identified it as a War Department Austin 8 Tourer..
His father dragged it from a field and repaired it, but the work is fairly crude. It would move but needs some wheels and tyres. I said I would request help from here. It seems that this version has special, un-perforated wheels but I think the owner would be grateful for anything cheap that would fit.

Interesting, looks like it deserves some TLC, there's something very similar featured in the old photos section of the site, namely:
