Well, then my only other guess would be a custom-bodied Jag XK-120.
Why someone would have spent a huge amount of money to turn the best sports car of its day into a luxo-coupe is something that I don't understand, but...is it a custom-bodied XK-120?

If it was really a "one-off"...is it really a fair game to expect us to recognize the make?

Scroll down this page for the answer, perhaps the particular customization of the car was somewhat obscure but the marque certainly wasnt..

Not a Rover?

Edit: I see it is a Riley. Certainly extra-ordinary!
