Based on pictures alone, my current guess is that the engine is an Austin A40.  Taking a quick look at the engine, we couldn't find its serial number, so I'll have to wait to see for sure until I can find the serial number on the engine itself.

More specifically, the dash (there were a couple of styles, and ones fits) and the engine (including the rad) are straight from an Austin Somerset (the rear end, chassis, too, are also from one, though modified).

Very neat looking rig. Sort of resembles the '50s Ford tractor styling.

Some of the instruments on the dash look very British to me. The rectangular fails look like it came off a Riley, Rover or Morris and the central speedo is very similar in style to an older Morris Minor from the 50s.. Whoever created this is surely a genius with metal frabication and engineering. The A series engine is a classic engine over here in the UK; the 998cc engine is regarded as the best followed by the 1275cc one.

I would love to know more about this so keep us updated.
