1939 Austin 18/6 Ambulance Thomas Startin Jnr.
Enigma (2001)
From 'shalimited' comments regarding 1939 Austin 18/6 Ambulance also in My Left Foot - Movie.

shalimited wrote RC6895. Currently off the road and on loan to the Bletchley Museum This is actually a 1939 model-see the full length rear-doors, the 1938 model has an external step and the doors stop at floor-leve.

The cab they walk away from is after 1974 by the black rubber over-riders.

1960 Morris Mini Minor MkI [ADO15]
Assignment K (1968)
Morris badge & grille.

Early model? I think, by painted grille and panel shape under bumper without cut-outs.

Colour and rear end says you're probably correct!

A maroon Cortina Estate? a blue Rootes (Minx?) plus a white sports car (Spridget?) next to a shapeless maroon saloon in the centre, otherwise little to comment on.

1974 Austin FX4

Only low quality but sufficient I think for the taxis seen...

Austin FX4
London's Burning: The Movie (1986)
Anyone recognise on what car these door handles were first used or used elsewhere (probably from another BMC parts bin)? 2014-06-26 14:59
Austin FX4
London's Burning: The Movie (1986)
About 1980 saw more standard colours added also the vinyl roof and sun-roof options but not as standard fit.

Edit: regarding door handles. The first pushbutton style was added in 1973 due to EEC safety regulations. (I thought in the past the first pushbutton handles were carryover from the Austin Morris 1100 but cannot now confirm it.... work in progress time permitting!)

Not being certain myself.

No doubt a Zodiac Mk.IV but needs confirmation if 'Zodiac Executive' features are also seen here?

Where does 1975 and 1986 come from?

Picture searches where handles are visible on vehicles with known number-plates "not later than" (so can be earlier).

chicomarx wrote
It has to be squealing pig or squid soup in that context.

:lol: Sq = square (or rectangular/not round) - I have not attempted to identify the vehicles they were first used on - they are obviously not made for the FX4 initially.

Edit: the original search was carried out over a year ago now - a quick google for the above handle shows it in use on A175UHV (1983/4 FX4R) https://www.flickr.com/photos/ross08/5465144705/in/faves-ragtag04/

Edit 2: - Why was I looking for door handles? Partly because it was suggested cabbies liked the suicide doors to open them from the driver's door window - how easy was it to open them with the push button handles? - I know the old lever type would be very easy.

Austin FX4
London's Burning: The Movie (1986)
I believe the door handles are as follows.

Original FX4 1958-68
Early straight lever type 1958-1963
Curved pre-facelift 1964-1968

Later FX4 incl Austin-Carbodies/LTI

Curved lever type 1968-1973 (edit: 1973 EEC safety requirement - lever type not permitted).

Austin 1100?? push button handles 1973 - Late 1980s (say 1973-1986)

Straight handle chrome sq. push button (as above) Late 1980s-1989

1989 LTI Fairway all black handle round push button.

1971 Ford Zodiac Estate by Abbotts of Farnham MkIV [3012E]
Villains (1972)
Yes, those overall proportions the long bonnet plus the small rear glass can only match the Zephyr/Zodiac Mk.IV estate car.

So Zephyr or Zodiac?

edit: Default selection, Zodiac in absence of further details.

1971 Ford Zodiac Estate by Abbotts of Farnham MkIV [3012E]
Villains (1972)
A look at the small rear overhang plus the long bonnet makes me think it could be Ford Zephyr/Zodiac Mk.IV - Abbotts of Farnham

Only 50% certain but details look right, the wide black C pillar is covered by the people I think.

Mandator tractor unit I guess? 2014-06-25 14:19
1965 Bedford HA Side Window Conversion.
The Professionals (1977-1983)
I think it likely to be another simple van conversion rather than the Beagle, by not seeing the side chrome strip but with chrome not painted bumpers.

However there are apparently variations in the way the Bedford Beagle side windows were made. Non-opening ones here for example, in addition to the more normal central flip-glass used by Martin Walter.

1965 Bedford HA
The White Bus (1967)
September 1964, so 1965 model year.

Painted bumpers and no side chrome strips, so 6-cwt not 8-cwt HA van.
2014-06-25 12:32
1965 Bedford HA

Bedford HA 8cwt van introduced August 1964. Chrome trim on side so 8cwt and factory fit chrome plated bumper. 2014-06-25 12:26
1965 Bedford HA
Villains (1972)
Bedford HA 6cwt or 8cwt van introduced August 1964. Bumper not painted so 8cwt as factory fit chrome plated part.

1962 second generation mirrors (larger single mid-'A' pillar mount was introduced replacing top mounted mirrors).

TKHA 18.3-Ton (gross) Heavy Duty, articulated tractor unit introduced 1962 model year.

Bedford TK range introduced September 1960 at the Commercial Motor Show Earls Court.

1971 Ford Zodiac Estate by Abbotts of Farnham MkIV [3012E]
Villains (1972)
JCB wrote Film news crew car I believe so may be something unusual.

I tend to agree probably an imported car in the UK, in the absence of any obvious large estate.

Vauxhall Cresta PB Estate has a different rear roof line without the sharp top corner and the Victor FD Estate, I believe is ruled out by the shorter length of the glass in the load area, the almost circular shape of the wheelarches and the length between the wheelarch and the front of the passenger door.

American Motors did RHD imports I think about 1968 - Rambler estate car or whatever it was sold in the UK as? 2014-06-24 19:56
1968 Austin Mini Van
Villains (1972)
1960 registration?

Austin Mini Van (not wagon/estate car).
2014-06-24 19:46
1958 Albion Clydesdale [CD21 TR]
Villains (1972)
Agreed Albion bumper therefore Clydesdale (CD21) tractor unit or Chieftain (CH7, CH17, CH53) tractor unit

However wheels appear to me to be the 8-stud Chieftain rounded/dished wheel rather than 10-stud Clydesdale which are noticably flatter in profile.

CH7 1960-1967
CH17 Leyland engined 'Chieftain Super Six' 1962-72
CH53 'Chieftain 51' 1967-1969

1964 Austin 503 5-Ton K100 [WF]
Villains (1972)
Austin / Morris (also BMC from 1968 but badging looks more like longer Austin or Morris)

looks like 5-Ton 1964-1967 503 K100 (rather than 3-Ton)

Chevrolet Chevy Van
Scooby-Doo (2002)
Having worked extensively on the Bedford CF I can assure you its not the CF in the main picture, either of UK or Australian manufacture.

Windscreen shape is wrong and door handle position too low. These would be unnecessary modifications and extemely expensive and difficult to carryout. Notice also it has a LHD wipers and wiper arm position.

These are however the Scooby-Doo Bedford CF.

1939 Bedford O-Type
Churchill: The Hollywood Years (2004)
1939 Bedford O-type by the smaller gap between the door and rear edge of the mud guard.
Therefore the cab-forward and slightly over-engine design of the O-type.
2014-06-22 13:43
Bedford O-Type
I vinti (1953)
Confirmed... the Bedford in main picture is also an "O" by the four sets of unequal slots in the bonnet. 2014-06-22 13:31
1939 Bedford O-Type
Hovedstadens gamle forsteder (1953)
Shorter bonnet makes it the heavier, cab-forward partly over-engine O-type. 2014-06-22 12:39
1938 Bedford WLG
The World at War (1974)
With the new grille (to be used a year later on the M-Series), the W-Series cab and long wheelbase makes it a 1938-9 WLG.

2014-06-22 12:34
1938 Bedford WLG
The World at War (1974)
The flat roof to the cab and one-piece windscreen makes this a 1938-9 WLG (or WHG) not the 1939 M-type. 2014-06-22 12:27
1946 Bedford O-Type
Passport to Pimlico (1949)
Short bonnet, cab forward makes it the heavier O-type. 2014-06-21 20:23
1939 Bedford O-Type
The Rat Patrol (1966-1968)
Set of four short & long bonnet slots make this an O-type. 2014-06-21 20:00
1939 Bedford O-Type
Don Lucio y el hermano pío (1960)
Set of four short & long bonnet slots make this an O-type. 2014-06-21 19:58
1939 Bedford-Scammell OSS
We Are the Lambeth Boys (1958)
This is the only M-type tractor unit on IMCdB currently, however a Bedford M-type tractor unit was not included in the Bedford truck range.

The Bedford M type short wheelbase 120" was available as a truck (MS) but unless it is a conversion, the only tractor was the O-type (OSS - listed as 8-ton 111" wheelbase Tractor, Scammell coupling).
2014-06-21 19:49
1939 Bedford K-Type
Wakefield Express (1952)
Single rear wheels so its a Bedford 25cwt-35cwt K-type not a 2-3 Ton M-type.

From 1939, reintroduced January 1946 after WWII.
2014-06-21 18:30
1939 Bedford K-Type
The Deadly Affair (1966)
Single rear wheels so its a 25cwt-35cwt K-type not a 2-3 Ton M-type. 2014-06-21 18:24
1946 Bedford M-Type
Vera Drake (2004)
Very likely the Bedford M-Type 'ESU367' by the oval on the body side the removals van that also appears in 'Poirot' and many other TV programmes and movies. 2014-06-21 15:29
