I tend to think Singer Gazelle, two-tone paint and 'square' rear number plate housing?

I think it may be a Minx...

No, the Minxes all had the longer number plate housing (as in your picture).

But the car that Greybear refers to is a Singer... The colour scheme of the car shown here is that of a Minx.

I believe is more like this with the colour division further up (but with some light reflection in the main picture).

Did the Minx ever have 'square' rather than 'long' rear number plate housings?

Indeed, my parents 1958 Minx had a long rear number plate, but the 1957 Series I seems to have had a square one: http://www.carandclassic.co.uk/car/C21536

As there were probably more Minxes produced than Gazelles I'm happy with the 1957 Series I Minx as an identification, DynaMike and greybear. :king:
