1954 Triumph Renown Mk2

dsl wrote ... but I also don't think it's a Limousine as no division apparent.

Yes, I was unsure about that also.

From earlier comments and the Marple episode itself, I assumed it was a Limousine.

My original typo... 'KX' rather than the correct '799 UXK'... (I have an in-built blind-spot having owned a 'KX' registration).

Talbot Horizon modified as a 3-Door Estate [C2]
London's Burning (1988-2002)
Exiv96 wrote Another strange detail : the side windows are typical of a four door estate, but there are no handles on the rear doors ! The woman doesn't even try to open the rear door ; instead, she's placing her baby through the front door.

I wonder if this car was a one-off, non-running prototype for a Horizon Estate proposal, sold off by Peugeot after they closed the Chrysler UK R&D department at Whitley.

A close-up of the distinctive rear-door glass frame is the same as the Horizon's shape and size. The rear doors, if they are covered up would be the same as the saloon. Although its unlikely Chrysler UK would sell a static buck of a new design proposal (they are usually scrapped) perhaps in this case it was sold or given to the production company.

The Talbot Horizon's windscreen, 'A' pillar, front door glass, bonnet rear edge and panel form all appear to match.

The 'groove' panel-form through the front wing and the door is relatively easily filled and blended perhaps (to conform to the rear end?).

The rear-side glass frame section (double section) does not match the door glass frame (single section) and is manufactured differently - possibly from a different car on a Horizon front end?

London's Burning (1988-2002)
Japanese looks likely to me. I don't recognise the seat belt latch plate and I know most European seat belts from the 80s onwards.

Lock cylinder above the external door handle also unusual but not seen on Sunny Estate and unlikely it would be modified.

edit: - I have never seen the lock cylinder above a door handle (only under or to the side) and is so unlikely I think now it probably has been repositioned.

Are any interior views of a Sunny Estate available to match the passenger side dash area with the clip?

Eastern Valley (1937)
The radiator could be Morris-Commercial but not clear enough.

Around this time 1936 it could be a Morris-Commercial T3 1-ton and there are some similarities, but the wheel design, rear hubs, and the locations of side and headlights are more like the Morris-Commercial C11/30.

1955 Austin 5-Ton 503 [FE]
They're a Weird Mob (1966)
The Austin and Morris FE forward control trucks were introduced at the same time as Austin and Morris WE normal control trucks 1n March 1955.
Link to "archive.commercialmotor.com"

Both FE forward control and WE normal control cabs used the same new lower front panels (with the necessary Austin or Morris also later a BMC grille).

I can find no Austin equivalent to the Morris FV series II (with the inverted heart-shaped grille) introduced in about 1954 and doubt its existance. However perhaps an example will turn up in the future with or without the same lower front panel.

1955 Austin 5-Ton 503 [FE]
They're a Weird Mob (1966)
DidierF wrote I disagree with you, Sunbar. It is not the sytling of 1955 [FE] but the one of '54 [FV II]. (All my knowledge lying upon the page linked before.)

The lorry grille is slightly better seen here, /vehicle_751885-Commer.html

DidierF, the Austin-Rover OnLine data is incomplete and has errors.

"the Series II also featured distinct styling for its Morris and Austin versions" - The introduction date of the Austin version was either 1954 or 1955 and the grille remained unchanged throughout Austin FE production.

"In 1955, after just one year, the FV was replaced by the FE (or Series III) cab. The FE saw the individual Morris and Austin styling replaced with a single corporate design, although it was still sold under both brands." Not true they were specific Austin and Morris grilles (the Morris grille is not shown /vehicle_434974-Morris-FE-1957.html). The BMC grille shown was used much later.

1955 Morris-Commercial LD [LD]

After the 1952 'inverted heart-shaped' LD 1-ton grille was changed its generally 'Morris'? This is the 1955 onwards Morris grille.

Morris-Commercial Leader
Imperial Airways - The Definitive Newsreel History 1924-1939 (2011)

The full-width glass in the rear of the cab was about only a third of the width on the Leader and the wheels appear to have 5 slots whereas the P-type Leader had eight slots (in common with most Morris-Commercial trucks in the 1930s).

Leader P-type 2˝ to 5-Tons - for future reference (Commercial Motor Archive & www.iamo.org.uk).
1930-1934 2˝-Ton Leader 156" w/base
