I know it isn't a Miata but that is all I know. It looks like it is a home built on a very early chassis. The tank on the running board looks like an add-on. No front brakes. No fenders. No lights. Looks like a hot rod, race car. It has the Speedster style of rear body like the sports cars of the day.

The tank is an acetylene tank for the (useless) headlights. My friends ‘12 Reo has that setup.
After googling his car, this one’s radiator shell looks identical, so I think it’s a Reo. But hot-rodded.
