There is another limousine of the same style (I think the one called Coupé de Ville), for a tinyy part and a mere three-second shot:

I think it is not the same (besides the fact it plays another part), but I think also that nobody would identify it, so it'll only grace the commentaries.

This is not a Rolls-Royce, the radiator mascot resembles the Cigogne Volante of a Hispano Suiza, or maybe that seen on an Isotta Fraschini. The coachwork style is referred to in America as a "Salamanca", but looks to me to be a closed drive landaulette, although the driver's roof may be a removable hard top.

It also looks very similar, but not identical, to this: -


or, more likely, this may be the actual car: -


So, I'll go nap on an Isotta Fraschini Tipo 8A.

I agree, the Isotta Fraschini Tipo 8A seen in 'Rebecca' 1940 looks as though it could be the same car.

(Rrrhhh… shame on me.)

"Transformable" or "Trasformabile"?

And the one in the thumb, any idea?

The one in the thumb could be almost any large car from the evidence in the picture.
