Intrigued as to HTF  you get in and what the driving position is like, more details needed, where was the original picture sourced from? 

Someone spotted it and posted it on FB, as Barrett says, it still exists so the mystery can be solved.

Looks like a Kellison but not sure which model. On this one it looks like the roof sort of lifts up as well, J4 and J5 apparently have different doors to make access easier. I think they started as early as 1959 doing allsorts of weird stuff using a fair bit of English engines and parts

A customised Granada Cardinal hearse.


Oh, okay, it's a Capranada! A difficult transplant, especially as the Granada is significantly wider than the Capri, and nicely done but it does seem to be an entirely pointless exercise. Dead weird.

Ideal shagging wagon if you pick up a goth bird. :D

some sort of filming rig vehicle of some kind is my best guess :)

Something along the lines of a haflinger

Both good guesses but it isn't either of those things. It's nowhere near finished so I guess it was a bit cruel asking for guesses when it's just a frame. It's actually a Discovery chassis rebuilt to forward-control and being built up as an expedition camper. The chap created it as a cheaper alternative to a 101 and a lot of fiddly work has been done but he reckons it's still over a year from completion.

the DVLA/MOT checker has it down as a Nissan laurel assuming im reading the reg correctly H741CDM

Nissan Laurel C33 I think. 

That's the one, infact it might be this very car:



Mileage on mot and import year checks out, the disposable camera probably didn't capture it's colour very well.
