Revolico

I have absolutely no idea what this car is. A hand made Fiat of some sorts, maybe?

I found this on a website called Revolico, which seems to be the Craigslist of Cuba.

We've all heard about some of the amazing cars in Cuba. Well preserved 1950s American iron, cars made from parts of various other cars, Ladas, Fiats, Peugeots, etc. It all seems to be true. Cuba seems to be a country of car geeks and truly amazing mechanics and fabricators.

The Revolico site is pretty well laid out, but very few of the ads have photos. The ones that do have photos show some very interesting cars. Of course, being able to read Spanish is a huge help (which is not something I do well).

You can find the car shown above here.

The car below appears to be some sort of Renault / VW hybrid. Very weird and very cool.

The red car looks like a Fiat 1200TV from the mid-1950s.

I think you're right. The rear fender flares are unique as is much of the interior.

It's interesting.
