The only Fisher I can think of is the company that was the GM coachbuilder (since 1926 I think!) so it could be any of a number of Fisher-bodied GM models of that era!

I was trying to figure out if they
were way off base.
I'm not interested - just passing
it along.

The ad mentions "Triumph motor from the factory"; if indeed that's the original engine, it would eliminate the BMC-powered Metropolitans. Without a picture, it's tough to imagine what it is. 1957 is too late for a Triumph Mayflower ("Fisholow" or Fisher and Ludlow body) but about right for a Standard 10 (Triumph 10 in the US, but the ad mentions right-hand drive).

According to Wikipedia, Fisher made bodies fot standard Triumph, but what this one is, I have no idea!

Fisher and Ludlow was a British car body manufacturing company which was acquired by the British Motor Corporation (BMC) in 1953. It was based in Castle Bromwich near Birmingham.

After the merger of BMC and Pressed Steel Company (PSC) in 1966, and the formation of the British Leyland Motor Corporation (BLMC) in 1968, the Ludlow and Fisher business was merged with the PSC business to form Pressed Steel Fisher under BLMC.

The production version of the Mini was demonstrated to the press in April 1959, and by August several thousand cars had been produced ready for the first sales and had Austin A-Series 850cc engine, so if this is 1957 and a Triumph engine it may be pre-production?

Not likely, since in 1957 Triumph and BMC were still 11 years away from being uncomfortable roommates in the BLMC empire!
