I met a guy locally who owns this car.  This is the only pic of it.  He has no idea what it is and needs help with figuring out what it is. 

 I think it's one of the homemade custom jobs of the 50s using a Chrysler frame a/o drivetrain.  Does this look familiar to anyone?

I doubt it.  He said it even wasnt fiberglass, let alone steel.  The reason it's such an oddity is that he said the body looks like vacuum formed plastic! 
I have no doubt the MG may have been the inspiration.
