My friend, that seems to be a 1952 or so [Bentley Continental R](http://wallpaphd.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/2000-Bentley-Continental-R-21.png) an icon. A muse for designers as varied as the one that designed the [1965 Buick Riviera](http://www.hotrodscustomstuff.com/OLD_SITE/Cars/Black%20Riviera/Riviera-06-01.jpg). The Bentley Continental R happened to be the world’s most expensive car in it’s time, and when it’s engineers were sourcing the best transmission in the world, at the time, it happened to be GM’s 2 speed [PowerGlide](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Powerglide), so that’s what it got. Great eye, great find and good taste on your part for spotting it.
