Curbside Classic Clue

I showed a big chunk of the Clipper Coupe’s roof line, and jpcavanaugh got it right away. Congratulations. Now here’s something where google likely won’t be of help to you. It will probably take a former (or current) owner to figure this one out.

    I'm going to guess a propane powered Crown Victoria. I assume the owner popped the trunk to show Paul the refuelling kit inside.

    I think pleiter is close, it must be a VW of some sort, maybe a 412.

    The small wheelwells and the height suggests early 50's late 40's, and there's a bulge at the top, suggesting hinges or even a convertible roof. And it's too dark to be a wagon. Seriously tough one this.

    What are the chances there's a Kaiser Traveller still in existence? If one does exist, it would be in Eugene OR, maybe even as a daily driver. I'm going out on a limb, and guessing a 49 - 52 Kaiser Traveller. Edited: From Paul's vague clue, I'm thinking that it's something newer.
