Hi
Had it confirmed by someone else on the BOC.
Quote:
This is the Langenthal drophead built on a 400 chassis, which appeared at the 1948 Geneva Show. It is believed not to have survived the ravages of time.


So I got the chassis wrong 400 not 401.

I reckon that's got the bonnet flutes of a Vauxhall.
I don't know my mid-thirties Vauxhalls very well, but it looks like a 12hp to me.

Looks more like an Austin by the hub caps and radiator badge.

I don't think it's an Austin. Looks more like a Vauxhall or Standard to me.

Following MikeC's lead, I found this-

A Vauxhall of 1933. It seems to fit the bill.
