1971 Land-Rover 109'' Series III
Elementarteilchen (2006)
The front wings and breakfast mounted lights are just there to confuse you ... :)

It actually is a Series III with the wings etc. from a Series II/IIa. Hinges, sills and especially the rear mounted tank point towards a newer vehicle.

Good spotting, Chris! Indeed a Land-Rover 107" Station Wagon. They were built from June 1956 to mid 1958. 2008-08-05 11:11

58Roadmaster wrote You mean the "Town" and "Country" ones, I wonder if anyone could explain those.

The 'Town' and 'Country' buttons appeared with the auto-tuning radios in early 1950s. The driver could press a floor mounted switch with his left foot and a small electric motor would tune the radio to the next (Country) or strongest (Town) station.

That is an optional extra. But beware, this extra increases the running costs dramatically ... ;)

Metropolis (1927)
antp wrote Too bad that part of such movie is lost forever :/ ...

Missing parts were recently discovered in a Film Museum in Buenos Aires. It is said that it is a rather scratched copy, so to restore it will take some time. Still it can be said that the missing scenes will add a new dimension to the film. ... and there is a lengthy scene in a car! :)

Saurer Typ B
The Nazis Strike (1943)
Yes, I'd agree that it is a Saurer. Not sure if '5BLD' is correct (describes the engine and load capacity), therefore 'B-Typ' might be appropriate. 2008-07-28 15:52
1926 Praga Piccolo

1936 Krupp Pz.Kpfw.IV Ausf.A Sd.Kfz.161
The World at War (1974)
It is the Panzerkampfwagen IV Ausf.A, Sd.Kfz.161 (1936-37). Only 35 units of this first version were produced by Krupp in Magdeburg, none of which have survived. 2008-07-20 01:06
1952 Moto Parilla Levriere
Mannekäng i rött (1958)
I agree with Lupo, it is a Moto Parilla Levriere (1952-58).
The Zündapp Bella was inspired by the Levriere which they initially intended to build under licence.

1942 Lorraine 10,5 cm leFH 18/40 GW Lr.S. (f) Sd.Kfz.135/1 (Becker)
The World at War (1974)
A very rare sight!

It is the 10,5 cm leichte Feldhaubitze 18/40 auf Geschützwagen Lorraine Schlepper in the version made by Becker. There was a version by Alkett which had a different upper body.

Usually this French made base vehicle, the Lorraine Tracteur Blindé 37 L TCR, an artillery tractor, was transformed into the Marder I using the 7,5-cm-Pak 40. Initially 387 tractors were made for the French Army, of which about 300 were captured by the Wehrmacht. In 1942 179 were transformed into quite capable hunting tanks using the 75 mm gun and the Alkett upper body (Sd.Kfz.135). Another 94 obtained the 15-cm-schweren-Feldhaubitze 13 M 17, a 150 mm howitzer gun, and both the Alkett (40) and later the Becker (54) upper body (Sd.Kfz.135/1). Only 12 were made using the 105 mm howitzer with both types of upper body. These twelve used (probably) the same Sd.Kfz.135/1 number.

The Lorraine had a six cylinder Delahaye 103 TT engine with 70 hp.


As always it is a bit difficult to give a country of origin and a year for such transformed vehicles. I would suggest to use 'France' as country of origin, 'Germany' as country it was made for and 1942, the year of transformation into a self-propelled howitzer.

1936 Scammell-Electricar Mechanical Horse Crew Cab Dustcart
23 Paces to Baker Street (1956)
I guess the reason for this cab is rather simple. The first Mechanical Horses appeared in 1934, 22 years before this film. The front end has possibly simply rusted away or was damaged beyond repair in an accident. The new front looks like being made from plywood, a carpenter's job. 2008-07-14 22:59
1936 Scammell-Electricar Mechanical Horse Crew Cab Dustcart
23 Paces to Baker Street (1956)
The 'nose', i.e. the front wheel cover, looks very much like a Scammell Mechanical Horse. From the dimensions of the rear wheel compared to the bicyclist and the TR3 I would say it is a 3-ton with a new cabin and added side guards.

Mercedes-Benz Labbé [T1]
R.I.S. Police scientifique (2006-2014)
I agree with Ingo that these vans look 70-ish. As we are in France and by the look of the axle and the mirrors I would suggest a UNIC 75 was used as the base vehicle.

2000 Ford Transit MkIV
L'iceberg (2005)
I guess I have to compile a truck wheel rim collection for my own reference ... it is quite hard to find good photos for comparison.

This one is, I am fairly sure, a small truck of the 3.5 to 5 ton class. I can rule out quite a few and my best solution is a Ford Transit, sixth generation (2000-2006).

I will try to find a real one with double rear wheels in the streets to proof or disproof my idea.

1976 Volkswagen Kombi [Typ 2]
Voll normaaal (1994)
It is a Brazilian made T1 mixed-model. It has the body and rear end of the T1 and the front end including front axle of the T2 and was produced from 1975 to 1997. Since 1997 the T2c model is being produced in Brazil, identifiable by it's different roof.

Brochure pictures show that by 1980 latest it had different, simpler plastic bumpers, so this must be an earlier version.

Take a closer look. It has double rear wheels, is leaf sprung and only two wheel drive.

I am not certain on who's chassis this armoured cash transporter is based, but possibly on a Commer KC.

Delta Mini Cruiser
Nine Deaths of the Ninja (1985)
With that filler position it must be a J2 (1954-59), I think a rather late one towards the end of the fifties.

The windscreen looks to be too high, probably exchanged for better visibility, possibly even exchanged for the film for a better view of the actors in the vehicle.

1971 Land-Rover 109'' Series III Carawagon Series 80
The French Lieutenant's Woman (1981)
Not difficult, but very interesting! :)

It is a Land-Rover 109" Series III Carawagon Series 80. The Carawagon conversions by Searle were available for the three-door 109" for the civilian (Series 80) and military (Tactical Command Post) market as well as a mobile clinic, and based on the 109" Station Wagon known as 'Continental'. There was also a version for the Range Rover ('Series 100' camper and 'Geological Survey Station' mobile office). The 'Safari' and 'Mobile Education Unit' based on the 88" did not have the pop-up roof.

This one is additionally interesting as it seems to have been converted into a mobile canteen.

1963 Morris Oxford Diesel Series VI [ADO38]
L'amour à la mer (1963)
In the book from the British Motor Industry Heritage Trust 'Complete Catalogue of Austin Cars since 1945' approximate production figures are given for the Austin A60 Cambridge Diesel saloon at 11.350 compared to 229.000 petrol engined A60s. For the Countryman only a total number of 36.184 is given for both, petrol and diesel. This means that less than 5% were diesel engined and most of these were sold for export to countries where different excise duties made it an attractive proposition in financial terms. On the home market the diesel cost £823 compared to £854 for the petrol version when introduced. 2008-06-21 20:09
Saurer unknown
The World at War (1974)
Certainly a Saurer, but some details (cab, bumper, air-vents) suggest that this one is not of Swiss origin. Saurer trucks were produced under licence in Austria (Österreichische Saurer Werke), France, USA (International Motor Company), UK (Armstrong-Saurer), Russia, and, post-war, Yugoslavia (FAP). Engines were also licensed to OM.

I am not certain, but an Austrian or French built Saurer is likely.

The gas-chamber-trucks you mention, Chris, were of Austrian production.

It shows the rather long rear overhang which is specific to South-African models. We have a few soft-top listed, but this is the first Station Wagon. So far I have no confirmation that it was actually assembled in South Africa or just a specific version for the African market.
