Nice find!
I have a Crescent Gordini mounted on the same kit hardware but with a Romford Terrier motor, the motor in the kit seems to be either an MRRC 3pole [the one without the "U" bracket] or a rewound Triang using MRRC brush spring.
Love these diecast conversions, have a converted Corgi "E" type Jaguar also fitted with the Romford Terrier but the builder scratch built steering and front suspension!
Must try and post pictures.

As promised we have some not very good pictures!
This first car is the Gordini I mentioned, found the chassis some years ago in a second hand railway shop near Tottenham [5:2
] then managed to find the body in a pile of junk at a local fate.

It was built for peg guide which was missing so a 3mm nylon screw did the job.
The Corgi "E" type was found in a collectors shop in Boscombe [Bournemouth], the shop keeper had it in a drawer full of junk and let me have it for a fiver!






The person who built this car new what he was doing, the workmanship on the steering/suspension is very good.
