Yo, Superman - Nice Car

The man of steel and his rakish convertible. Can anyone identify the car that he is posing with in this photo from the 1950s? It appears to have an interior nicely trimmed in wood and you can just make out an open engine compartment vent on the right side. I don't see any obvious badges or mascots, either.

For those too young to remember, George Reeves played the role of Superman in the television series of the same name. Judging by the prop glasses, I'd say that this is a publicity still for the series. Reeves was also the subject of a recent film, Hollywoodland.
