Classic Coachworks still seem to be offering the same cars with different names, makes sense, taking a step back from a replica name.

Just make sure you don't badge them or remove the badges as Smash is doing. If you put a genuine manufactures badge on a replica you are asking for trouble. The manufacturer will have spent many years and many millions of pounds on his name and badging so you have to understand why they would be pissed off.
However trying to copyright a design that is 60 years old and not badged or an exact copy, I think would be impossible to enforce.
There are many other replica manufacturers that I know off who make replicas with the same original name and using original badging. These have been trading for many years and do not seem to have a problem.
