L.M. (L. Mitre)

This conversion is very similar to the Splendilux one but the grille is very bulbeous and there are non standard louvres on the bonnet.

M.R. (Marius Renard)

This french company built a number of cars. The nose is a bit Splendilux like with the integrated headlights between the wings and the grille. The grill is devided into two sections. The lower section spreading from wing to wing. The wings are long swept and on some cars the rear wheels are enclosed. Both cabriolets and berlines were used and on the berlines the rear window is divided into two. The rear end is much more swept with a small fin on the bootlid.
