The 1941 Dodge went fast, despite its flathead six and Fluid Drive; pfsm called it out on guess #1. Shift gates are a Ferrari trademark, but you probably already know that this isn’t from the house of the prancing horse. But I’ll give you a rare clue to the clue: the name of this vehicle does have a decidedly Latin aspect.
Update: by Latin, I mean anything/anyone from the Romance/Latin countries: southern Europe, Latin America, etc….not a “Latin” name specifically. Maybe that’s not helping, so you can also ignore it.
