Another car mystery

Old Egyptian and Turkish movies often show alternate versions of American cars. Here’s a Plymsoto. Here’s a rare Packard limo. Here’s a Weird Willys.

Some of these are known factory variants, others seem to be either homemade or perhaps manufactured in small quantities by dealers.

Now a new puzzle in an Egyptian movie:

It’s a ’49 or ’50 Olds 88, with a perfectly fitted ’54 chrome strip and two-toning on the side. The chrome can’t simply be taken from a ’54 because the body is shaped differently in all dimensions. The chrome must have been specially made to create the same visual pattern. Was this a one-off custom, or made by an Egyptian branch of GM?

And a bonus from the same movie, a Studie pickup turned into a bus of sorts.
