A40 Somerset, but not 100% sure

I think the sill chrome trim goes more near the wheelarch and this would identify a 1951+ A70 Hereford.

But the number plate seems to be above the bumper: the Hereford's was below. I think Jean-Marc was right in the first place.

At 1st glance I went to A70 option, but the rear window does match more with A40 ...

You're right about the detail of the rear numberplate. Perhaps the sill trim doesn't go so near the wheelarch and what is seen is the wing, not the tyre.
