it seems to be a late 50s standard vanguard made in Turkey or Isreal

Movie is made in Australia, so I guess it is a local model (and Morris is written on it).

I had also thought at 1962 Morris(AUS)Freeway,but had a different body(copy that of 1961 Morris Oxford V/VI"'Farina-style",but had also 6 cyl.engines)

yes, you are right, its an Australian Morris Major series II, made from 1959 to 1964, sharing the same basic body structure and engine as the Wolesley 1500 and Riley 1.5

All the car seems a mix of BMC-made parts...e.g.,headlight pods recall same shape of 1959 Austin A 40"'Farina" and grille shape resembles that of 1959 Standard Vanguard Vignale or Pennant

Funny that this "old" car is from 1959, as the movie is set in 1960 and that the 1958 Customline is supposed to be brand new compared to this one :D
