I'm going through my photos, and found a few that I don't think I've aired here. Hope you like them! https://img91.exs.cx/img91/6889/falcon0uu.jpg

They are a Falcon, a Brabham F2 car, a closeup of an MGTD, and the ex-Andretti Lotus. The things I get up to when I'm waiting for my laundry to finish....

My apologies....I resized those pictures before hosting them, but I don't know why they still turned out so big....

Nice pictures...

I could have sworn that first picture looks like a Peerless GT (having seen one before), it has very similar lines to a Peerless but on closer inspection that front nose cone is slightly different.

Wow Sherlock, that's EXACTLY what I said -- I thought it was a Peerless/Warwick until I examined the nose.

Well,

I was fortunate enough to be around southern Ontario for a few years and to see a Peerless GT on a fairly regular basis, I know they aren't all that common and certainly aren't something you see everyday

I'm almost positive it's a Falcon GT. I thought it was a Peerless as well when I saw it. The car was parked in the main paddock at Road America last summer.

Okay... You've got me going now. Did some google searching/book searching, that bodyshell (in your picture) is awfully close to a Peerless save the grill, meaning... do we have a Warwick in this picture? [see image from web below]

Found a Falcon picture of their 515 coupe and it's not even close.

... anorak fact, whatever did we do before google image search...

I have no doubt at all that the first picture is of a Peerless.
Warwicks (a later development, sort of) have a one piece front end like a Spitfire or XKE and a weird
fin extension over the rear window.
