Well, close in that it is British, but it is a 1938 Austin 8.  You can tell
by the Austin wings badge on the grille.  They were continued briefly after
WW2.  I had a roadster version of that car as my first car.  No ball of
fire and had a wooden frame (like the T series MG), which in mine was in a
bad state.  Still it got me to and from University, even if I arrived at
most traffic lights with both feet pushed hard on the brake pedal in an
attempt to retard forward progress by the lights!!
