Some witchcraft at work. Front sidelights and cream grille (main) and rear view with badging and 3 rear lights per side (2nd thumb) match 1963+ Minor 1000 Traveller. But not the split windscreen (54-57), nor the 795 DMC plate (1954-55 issue). Either a total mongrel or some fakery to make a 1963 car look older (is there a plot reason to do this?).

No plot reason... The front is seen as shown in the main pic, then some windshield shots, and then the rear view. It's all meant to be the same vehicle.

1954 Morris Minor Traveller Series 2 seems to be the starting point, updated with some 63+ elements. Probably why they only film it on a dark rainy night. DVLA details for 795 DMC are:
Date of Liability 01 07 2013
Date of First Registration 03 12 1954
Year of Manufacture 1954
Cylinder Capacity (cc) 1098cc
CO2 Emissions Not Available
Fuel Type PETROL
Export Marker N
Vehicle Status Licence Not Due
Vehicle Colour GREEN
Vehicle Type Approval Not Available.

Engine size supports the idea of a 1954 car with substantial 1963+ updates.

@dsl: a very remarkable find here: Link to "www.ardmediathek.de" (after 1:54 about the re-introducing of expired county-codes on German plates) Not only that Minor Travellers were always extremely rare in Germany (AFAIK there ws no official import at all), this one has an original registration of the county Zell upon the river Mosel, which was terminated in 1969 :wow:
