Does anybody knows something about this car?

   

 



Below is a pic of a Quarter Midget for kids in 1957, the predecessor for go-karts.

notice the similar position of the nose,grille and driver.

I thik it's definitely a model of that Bugatti, they probably just didn't have a sophisticated enough casting system to do enclosed wheels. It's interesting that the wheels are full-diecast, without rubber tyres. I think most of the US-made slushcastings had rubber tyres. This might be Johillco or similar British maufacture.
