1919 Morris Oxford 'Bullnose'
The Home-Made Car (1963)
The engine did look too 'modern' for 1916 they possibly substituted a 1930s engine for filming.

I will get more screen captures if possible and also look at the wheelbase although if the online 'history' is true the chassis should be the actual Perry owned by Eric Longworth unless he had more restorations under way!.

The bonnet and side panels in the foreground do not belong to the truck, I think.

The driving position alongside and forward of the wheel-arch, with a very short front bonnet section, rather suggest some form of Canadian CMP as commented by rjluna2.

1950–1956 for this version with the divided windscreen and raised bonnet.

'5??APO' looks too late but '5??APD' would be good for February to June 1956 I believe.

The point of this part is that the tanker driver stops not to deliver any BP fuel, but to collect coffee for his flask.

Giuseppina (1960) Filming Locations (IMDb): Mandriole, Ravenna, Emilia-Romagna, Italy

[Image: title2g.jpg] [Image: glocation.jpg]
During filming and today.

I don't know if sub-titles were originally used but any dialogue was in Italian but they are unnecessary, as the the action is largely visual.

As you would expect at a filling station basic gestures work well, although the English are unusually silent and do not shout out in broken-English.

Giuseppina (1960) :D A bit more prominent than BP's 'The Home-Made Car'!

[Image: titleg.jpg] [Image: title3g.jpg] [Image: childg.jpg]

But it did win an Oscar (the Academy Award for Best Documentary Short Subject) in 1961. Although it is hardly a documentary, more the story of a little girl bored and unhappy that she cannot go to a fair-ground.

The only other background vehicle

^ That is actually a Bedford MW and the wheel-arch intrusion in the cab is different (less than the movie vehicle).

The Home-Made Car (1963) Its well acted and directed but completely predictable, gentle humour.

The music used throughout the film was by Ron Grainer and has hints of the music from 'Steptoe and Son'.

Surprisingly today, it had two awards at the Berlin International Film Festival in 1963 and even an Oscar nomination.

It apparently had a lot of British TV screenings as test transmission for the introduction of BBC's colour service, along with BP's comedy 'Giuseppina' shot in Italy, which I also hope to add soon on IMCDb.

The bonnet side panels are very similar to Bedford OY (more so than the Bedford MW) but the top shape is not parallel as in the flat-nosed Bedfords. In fact it looks more pointed than an Austin K2. 2015-10-16 11:30

1923 Morris Oxford 'Bullnose'
The Home-Made Car (1963)
The owner of the Bullnose Morris in the film, Eric Longworth, kept the car until his death in 2011. The car is now owned by Stuart Cooke of Darwen Lancashire. When the film was shot, the car had already been fully restored so the chassis of another car which Eric was restoring at the time, a rare 1916 Perry, was used to replicate the Morris during restoration. edit: except that it appears Wikipedia entry is wrong and it cannot be the smaller Perry 2-cylinder but another Morris 'Bullnose' chassis and only the 1914 Perry's body was used.

1927 Dennis 30 cwt Bus
To-Day We Live: A Film of Life in Britain (1936)
The normal 30cwt chassis truck and not the Type-E.

The Type-E chassis was specially for passenger use with a 2ft high 'low-load line' chassis, 16ft wheelbase and the driver alongside the engine.
The Type-F was as the Type-E but the driver sat behind the engine and the wheelbase increased by 7½in. In this case similar to the bus seen here but a longer and lower chassis.

Wealth of the World: Transport (1950)
The controls look to be specific to Steels Engineering Products the "Electric Eel" truck.

The wheel controls both acceleration and braking and the driver steering control is by transferring body weight from one foot to the other on the pivoting platform. The battery cover has been removed (easier to change or charge the batteries). The electric-hydraulic lifting platform has smaller solid steel wheels and is controlled by the lever on the driver's left.

In December 1944 30cwt and 50cwt, fixed and lifting platform trucks were announced.
