Flick335 ENI'll leave the model discussion to a Rolls Expert. The film setting is summer 1973. (Hence the F-plate ?)
The Rolls is a character car in that the audience knows its Kendrick's status symbol, and a feature of the dialogue in Freddie Taylor's insurance job interview with Mr Kendrick at the start of the film (~along with the Ģ42,000 house!).
I think its driven at the company dinner-dance as well as parked outside the mansion.

1956 Austin A35 [A2S5]
Cemetery Junction (2010)
DAF555 SEIīve done some digging on the subject of modelyears and found some examples from the early years of motoring.

The british magazine, The Light Car, had a list over 1916 models, published in November 1915:
[Image: tlc12.6563.jpg]

The french magazine, La Vie Automobile, published a test report in September 1912 over the 1913 model Chenard et Walcker:
[Image: lva11.6232.jpg][Image: lva12.72.jpg]

And the oldest sample I found was in the german paper, Automobil-Welt, two ads from october 1906 over 1907 models for Bianchi and Dixi:
[Image: aw11.3174.jpg][Image: aw12d.7775.jpg]
[Image: aw13.1258.jpg]

The Dixi ad is the oldest, published in N:o 94 October 10 1906, and a couple of weeks earlier, in september, the same ad talked about Modelle 1906.

I will have to get back to that library again and do some more research, I found an interesting debate in the american magazine, Motor, from summer 1911 about if it wasnīt about time to stop using the "Season Models" as they were called at the time. The 1912 models began to appear already in may that year. Most manufacturers voted in favour of ending it, but that never happened.
Obviously the system with modelyears have been effective for a very long time, even longer than I initially thought.

1956 Austin A35 [A2S5]
Cemetery Junction (2010)
DAF555 SENo, not really. The concept of modelyears has been around for almost as long as thereīs been cars for sale, Iīve seen it used in ads dating back to at least the 1910īs in different, mainly european, Motor Magazines both for european makes and american. Itīs a way for the manufacturers to show off that theyīre ahead of the competition. Another thing is that annual updates of current models, and most introductions of new models take place during fall. Retooling and service of the machinery take place during summer holidays when the workers are off.
Of course there are continuous technical improvements and introductions take place on autoshows at other times during the year, but mainly this is how itīs been working for the last century and in large part still is.
It is true that american manufacturers made this very obvious with annual facelifts for a very long time, say from about the mid twenties and forward, but the concept was already there and itīs still used in the autotrade even if the external differences per modelyear are minor or even invisible, thereīs usually some annual upgrade done.
The basic rule is that the modelyear runs from fall to summer, but there have been lots of exceptions from that over the years.
Itīs complicated to keep track of whatīs what about years when searching info since most sources are vague on what theyīre referring to. The stated year/date, is it about the pressrelease or when production started? Or perhaps about the modelyear of the cars that the first customer could buy? Sometimes itīs the same, but in many cases the info lands on different years.
An example is the Renault 4, pressrelease was on June 16 1961, production began during august but sales didnīt start until october as 1962 modelyear for the customers. Another example is Fiat that for many years released their news in spring, and sold them only on homemarket for the first six months or so, like 1300/1500 introduced april 1961 in Italy and considered that modelyear too, but no regular export except promotion cars until late fall making them 1962 models on abroad markets.
A recent example is the new Volvo S60, shown for the first time in february this year. Pre-production cars have been out on the roads since late spring, and now during september the first cars reach their buyers as 2011 models.
An exception from modelyears could be VW before august 1955, refinements and technical improvements were introduced when they were ready. But the late forties and early fifties was the sellers market, virtually anything could be sold and most manufacturers couldnīt keep up with demand anyway, so they didnīt need to worry so much about the competion.

Itīs as important to try to get the modelyear right as it is to try to find the correct modelname out, itīs basically about what would the original buyer recognize.

Registrys like DVLA can give leads to this, but the only thing it says (if itīs correctly entered) is when the car was put into traffic the first time. The field for "year of manufacture" is automated from the date of first registry. Itīs not based on facts given by the manufacturer and it wasnīt used in older registry. From what I know itīs a rule from the nineties coming from EU. Swedish registry did use modelyear up till 1997. But from 1998 this was dropped and only date of registry was entered for some years.

This model year thing, isn't it more of an American thing? ('59 Cadillac etc.) I prefer to put the actual year rather than to round up to the next year if a car was built in the autumn or winter.

"OFF without a suffix is therefore a DVLA issue" - my earlier guess now confirmed.
"could be from a date that doesn't match the Austin in the picture." - although we've agreed this because it's an A35, this should not actually happen, so there is a DVLA error. DVLA re-registered cars are possibly not going to be precisely dated for other examples on imdcb.

johnfromstaffs ENMerioneth stopped issuing the unsuffixed registrations at HFF (999?) in 1963, and went on to AFF 1B in 1964, so "OFF" without a suffix is therefore a DVLA issue and could be from a date that doesn't match the Austin in the picture. DVLA will not re-issue dead numbers, one of our family cars was a 1934 Wolseley Hornet registered JP 95, which I would love to have on my Bentley, but the car was scrapped and the number is dead and gone.
