Bonnascope, maybe you can highlight the car which the picture is for (on pictures with more than one car on it).
But a comment is also OK, car on the right, car on the lift, green sedan etc... :)

The film also tells the story of the Great Boston Brink's Robbery that occurred at Brink's Security Building on the corner of Prince and Commercial Street in the North End of Boston on night of the 17th January 1950.

During the heist, one of the robbers' hat kept falling off and had been left at the scene and also, the robbers overlooked one of the boxes, in that box was the payroll for the General Electric Company, totaling over $800,000.

The heist had netted over $2.5 million; ($1,218,211.29 in cash and $1,557,183.83 in money orders, checks and other security bonds).

The men who were involved in the robbery were involved in various crimes, these were:

Joseph McGinnis- Liquor Store owner, ex-robber and the organizer of the robbery.

Anthony "Fats" Pino- Italian-born robber and burglar and the "case man" as well as the brains for the robbery, was later taken into custody awaiting his deportation hearing on the 12th January 1953.
