1966 Sunbeam Tiger Series I
Ooh... You Are Awful (1972)
The chrome side strip is visible...

[Image: tiger.jpg]

The 'Tiger' script and registration are not easy to see and cannot say that either 'C' or 'D' is more likely.

edit: 'D' registration confirmed 1966 (??? 100D).

1974 Vauxhall Magnum 2300 [HC]
Take the High Road (1980-2003)
Colour is Platinum Starfire and Magnum 2300 (or 1800).

The Viva 1300 GLS from 1977 onwards would not have Platinum Starfire which finished in 1975.
2014-09-20 12:29
1974 Vauxhall VX 4/90 [FE]
Take the High Road (1980-2003)
If the new thumbnails show Rostyle type wheels then I think it confirms the VX 4/90 is more likely.

From memory the Ventoras had up-market full-diameter bright trim wheels with concentric bright rings and black centres. Although many 'restored' Ventoras are shown with Rostyles the Vauxhall brochures and press photos I can find show the up-market trim wheels for the Ventora.
2014-09-20 12:02
1974 Jaguar XJ6 [Series II]
Hanna D. - La ragazza del Vondel Park (1984)
Jaguar XJ6 or XJ12 [Series II].

I propose XJ6 as more likely?
2014-09-19 17:35
1974 Vauxhall Magnum 2300 [HC]
Take the High Road (1980-2003)
^ From my experience 1800 or 2300 equally likely for vinyl roof option and all Magnums had the side trim.

edit: Buyers tended to buy the 1800 for reasons of lower fuel consumption when the fuel crisis took hold but still with up-market looks. However there was little if any difference between the two engines but the 2300 was better for in-gear acceleration with no loss of economy.

Colour - Platinum Starfire or Gold Starfire metallic.

1974 Vauxhall Magnum 2300 [HC]
Take the High Road (1980-2003)
Tend to agree Magnum [HC] four door saloon, four headlamps, vinyl roof trim, looks like post-1974 front wing-profile. Some possible evidence of rubber-inserted side-trim on rear wing. 2014-09-19 15:56
1974 Vauxhall VX 4/90 [FE]
Take the High Road (1980-2003)
Early chamfered-corners grille surround Victor, VX/40 or larger.

However sidelights below bumper VX/40 or Ventora (but no vinyl roof) and yes [FE] but not VX1800/2300.

Hans le marin (1949)

1958 Morris LD Royal Mail
Bronco Bullfrog (1969)
1958 onwards Morris LD 2-ton introduced August 1957. Chassis based on the normal control LC05/T by the uprated front wheel size and twin rear wheels. 2014-09-16 11:34
1966 Austin Mini De Luxe MkI [ADO15]
Bronco Bullfrog (1969)
As a quick search another 1965 Super De Luxe ("This 1966 Austin Mini Mk I 'Super Deluxe' was built on 25th October 1965") This appears to be full of verifiable detail for the actual car....


My memory is not I think playing me tricks but I do believe my Almond Green was a Super De Luxe and was hydrolastic.

Unless the change dropping the 'Super' designation also included a equipment difference its difficult to find another way of confirming it.


http://www.minimania.com lists the chassis number designations for all the various models.

This confirms the Silverstone Auctions October 1965 example's chassis number as a 'Super De Luxe'.

Chassis Number: A-A2S7- >S< /804876-A >S< = Super DeLuxe >D< = DeLuxe

1966 Austin Mini De Luxe MkI [ADO15]
Bronco Bullfrog (1969)
I had two cars each for about two years both were second hand about one year old at the time. Good to drive reliabilty very poor but the rust took over after only two years.

The Super Deluxe (or De Luxe) I owned was Almond Green.

The 'Maroon B' Mini was another car.

1966 Austin Mini De Luxe MkI [ADO15]
Bronco Bullfrog (1969)
I owned a May 1965 Austin Mini Super Deluxe (hydrolastic) - definitely 'Super Deluxe' at the time so may have changed for 1966 although I cannot confirm it. 2014-09-15 14:34
1949 Morris Oxford [MO]
Orient (1960)
Now, dare I say the thumbnail is probably a Morris Minor? ;)

Any comments or agreement?
2014-09-14 20:30
1949 Morris Oxford [MO]
Orient (1960)
Finally convinced it is an Oxford for the following details.

1) length of raised panel line under the C pillar (Minor is noticably shorter).
2) the flatter belt-line as it goes over the boot (Minor raised and more curved).
3) no evidence of raised headlamp cowl on all of the Minor 4-door models.

1949 Morris Oxford [MO]
Orient (1960)
Lateef wrote Can't be 1963, the documentary was shot in the mid-1950s, and the rear window makes it pre-1957.

Sorry, I intended to say September 1953..

and dsl...

Yes agreed - a close run thing. I'm struggling so see any definite detail for deciding definitely Minor or Oxford.

So 50:50 = just an overall impression its a Minor but Oxford is very possible.
2014-09-14 15:40
1949 Morris Oxford [MO]
Orient (1960)
The bright-trim on the cill is a sun-lit refection on the body.

Oct 1951 or later Morris Minor 4-door one piece rear bumper. MM or series II 'highlight' wings on all four door saloons.

I guess its a September 1963 Series II Deluxe with the over-riders.

1925 Vickers 15-30 'Aussie' International-Harvester copy
Mr. Reliable (1996)
Fascinating stuff I never realised Vickers tried to enter the tractor market, great work there, mike 962!

I'm no expert, but I don't believe its a flywheel but the 'power take-off' belt pulley (abbreviated to 'PTO') for transmitting power to other pieces of equipment. Sure enough its based on the steam engine flywheels that were used for this function but its too small to be an effective flywheel.

1960 Austin 304 [FG]
Om Tilla (1963)
Not S200 which would have single rear wheels but T200 or more likely I believe the 3-ton 304.

2014-09-12 10:50
1960 Austin S200 [FG]
Power Rangers RPM (2009-2010)
1960-1966 for rectangular side-lights either Austin or Morris 1965-66 with the commonised Austin/Morris grille. So probability says its more likely an Austin S200 [FG]. 2014-09-12 10:43
1960 Austin S200 [FG]
Power Rangers RPM (2009-2010)
The UK 1970 onwards Leyland FG normally had round (not the earlier rectangular) side-lights I think, and possibly before the BMC-Leyland marger about 1968?

Were these locally assembled?

1939 Bedford O-Type Pickfords
Wealth of the World: Transport (1950)
Bedford O-type either 1938 version (most likely) or 1939-53, however the paint or chrome over the bonnet side-vents slightly obscures the typical .--. louvre spacing

Bedford M-Type 'BOAC'
Wealth of the World: Transport (1950)
Not Prestwick but possibly the other direction...

If Southdown coaches operated from Southampton, BOAC were still operating a flying-boat service from Southampton Flying-boat Terminal until 1950.

The two BOAC vans are Bedford O-type (left) and M-type (right).
