From this site CORD it says Cord 810 and 812 in movies. Also in http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0059905/ "Fun Stuff, Trivia" it says: According to John Heseltine (who restored the car for the film) David Niven couldn't master the idiosyncratic gearbox of the Cord 810 and subsequently it was driven in bottom gear, resulting in it overheating. The scene in the film showing the steaming Cord was hastily rewritten to work around the problem. The car had to be restored from nothing but a rusty collection of parts in just six months to get it ready for filming.
I found the blank as 1937 Cord Phaeton, but according to previuos info, could be a Cord 810 or 812 Convertible Phaeton like this nice one Model 812 Convertible Phaeton

I think the author of the original book used to own a Cord and I thought it was his car that appeared in the film.

But it's a two-seater.
