Captured equipment perhaps?

hiergehts CHI watch the film today and the Chrysler is LHD, so I assume a Royal.

plymouth-guy USIf this is American, it is an export model: It features right hand drive.

Is that a flower holder/vase mounted on the lower cowl? I don't recall, it has been many year since I have seen this film.

nzcarnerd NZIt was the curved top radiator that had me foxed - definitely not Chev. Apart from the wheels it could be American. I wonder of it is a hybrid - maybe a Willys Whippet with Sankey wheels?? 2008-09-02 20:55

johnfromstaffs ENIf this is a Bean, it could only be either a Twelve or a fourteen. It certainly has ten spoke Sankey type artillery wheels, I used to work for GKN Sankey. However, there are no external door handles, the louvres on the bonnet are not of the correct pattern and from my picture of the 14 Tourer there is no driver's door, as a sidemount spare wheel is located in that position. Finally, the above photograph does not appear to show semi elliptic front springs, which were fitted to all Beans. (But cantilever rear suspension on the "Hadfield" Bean only, before anybody pulls me up).

The headlamps on the 12 and 14 would not have been so visible over the front mudguards.

I have to disagree with nzcarnerd about this car's Beanishness, but I don't know what sort of car it is.

NB. - English/American dictionary

English American
Hood = Top
Bonnet = Hood
Mudguards = Fenders

Threw me for a minute trying to work out why Pilou said we should have louvres in a hood!

pilou BEI checked my Bean pictures but I am still a bit sceptic here because the hood sides do not seem to match Beans that had large open hood louvres even on the end twenties models.Perhaps someone of the UK Bean Club could help? 2008-09-02 16:45

pilou BEI do not remember fine movie details since I last saw it in...1958 ! as a youngster.I think the point here is right or left hand drive.It it is a rhd it indeed may be a Windsor originating from the Canadian or UK Kew factory and intended for the Commonwealth.If it is a lhd it may be different.It certainly is one of the lower lines Royal or Windsor.I still remember my brother having left the movies saying : " Did you notice that Chrysler it wasn't even built in 1943" 2008-09-02 16:39

nzcarnerd NZBeing in a British colony it might actually be a Windsor. Several of these found their way to British countries as official cars. Twenty one 1947 Windsors came to NZ after being originally intended for Ireland. 2008-09-02 10:12

nzcarnerd NZI am fairly sure this is a Bean - probably from about 1927-29. http://www.britishmm.co.uk/history.asp?id=114 The Sankey wheels are distinctively British.
