It may be naphtha. But, I used to buy it where I bought my auto paint.
I just did a Web search & found it: 3MT General Purpose Adhesive Cleaner
"Specially blended solvent which provides easy cleanup of most types of
adhesives, bugs, greases and oils, overspray, silicone, waxes and tars. Will
not harm most thoroughly cured automotive paint, vinyl or fabrics when
It is available in quart size container.

The solvent you are thinking of is probably naphtha. It is the main
ingredient in lighter fluid which I frequently use for removing glue
residues. I've never tried it on anything as large as an MGB hood so
don't take this as a recommendation or endorsement.
