Somehow it looks Corgi-ish...

Dinky 195 was a Mk.II; Corgi Mk1 208 had full rear wheel spats. Spot-On 114 Mk1 possible but does not look right - Link to "www.ebay.co.uk" . Perhaps a bigger scale - Triang, Mettoy etc.

Frequently used footage, here from a slightly different angle in 'The Baron': http://youtu.be/i1tLPnFzeq8?t=2m35s

Not 100% certain that is my old car, but it could be!

My car did not have any wing mirrors in my time, never mind odd ones. Also, my car had a rear view mirror on the dash board, though I did use a high level stick on one at some time.

My car was a 1959, 3.4 SE, the same type that killed Mike Hawthorn. Its registration number was UKV 668.

I bought the car for £300 in July 1964. It had been owned by a pilot who lived near East Grinstead.

In March 1966, I put an advert “For Sale” in the window and parked it in front of my house. We were then living on the A3, almost opposite the old KLG spark plug factory in Roehampton Vale. Being on such a busy road, even in those days, a lot of people saw it, and quite a few stopped.

One of those who stopped was an agent for a company that hired cars to film companies. I just wanted to sell the car, so I passed on the agent’s card to the new buyer, who lived in Arundel Terrace, SW13.

The agent told me that the scene showing the Jaguar going over the cliff at Betchworth had already been shot, which would tie in with what other people have said. This car, I was told, was originally grey and had been hand painted to make it look more conspicuous when going over the cliff. I was also told that it was ‘an old heap’, so not a lot of money was wasted! Some years ago, I met a man who had salvaged some parts from this car.

In September 1966, the first of a new Saint series started on either Sunday 4th or Sunday 11th September; it was called The Queen’s Ransom. A white Jaguar appeared at the end, driven by the bad guys. It was clearly right hand drive, but I had to wait another 20 years to stop the video and check the scratches with some photographs. The scratches confirmed that the bad guys had used my old Jaguar, UKV 668.

Doubt remains in my mind about the Jaguar shown above with the odd wing mirrors. My Jaguar was used in The Saint without any doubt, but I leave it to others to decide about the one above.

There is an excellent article on the Randall and Hopkirk Declassified site about the infamous 'White Jaguar' footage:

Link to "www.randallandhopkirk.org.uk"

This was originally filmed in late 1965 for an episode of The Baron called 'Something for A Rainy Day': /vehicle_62427-Jaguar-MkII-1960.html, but the footage was deemed so expensive that it was used again many, many times in other productions... I gather that The Saint episode 'The Queen's Ransom' featured UKV 668, filmed on the Stwlan Dam in North Wales. That was apparently filmed in March 1966: /vehicle_49197-Jaguar-MkI-1957.html

The registration number of the one in this episode was probably NMK 76, according to sources online.

NMK 76 was an early 1963 plate, so normally would not match a Jag Mk1. If it was WRP 344 as claimed on Link to "www.randallandhopkirk.org.uk" , it was a July-Sept 1960 issue, again too late in normal circumstances for a Mk1 - see /vehicle_62427-Jaguar-MkII-1960.html . However UKV 668 (May-July 59, "Home Delivery Export Scheme" and possibly a factory registered Coventry combination) would match a Mk1 from final few months production before Mk2 launch in Sept 59, and as a 3.4 SE (^^) was the top Mk.1 spec.
