1963 Austin 4-60F 4-Ton [FH]
The Beatles Anthology (1995)
Australian extra vents, tropical cooling mod, are visible plus non-UK registration and possibly Australian?

Naming as Austin '45' [FF] or FF K100, FF K140 and Australian versions to be determined.

edit: comment from dsl here 1959 Austin FF 4-Ton 4.60 F

dsl wrote Aus assembly confirmed as Austin FF 1958-64. Versions were called 4.60, 5.60, 7.20, 7.50 and 7.60 covering 4.0-7.0 ton capacity with 120", 150" and 160" wheelbases. 3993cc petrol and 5160cc diesel.

1960 Austin S200 [FG]
Power Rangers RPM (2009-2010)
Australian built FG were named Austin 2-45F (2-ton) and 3-45F (3-ton), also had the Australia only extra vents, tropical cooling mod, not seen here.

NZ market specification (either UK or AU build) probably differed from Australian version. (UK naming/AU-build for NZ retained until better info is available.)

Australian built Austin 2-45F (2-ton) and 3-45F (3-ton)

Early rectangular side-lights from UK introduction in 1960, also the Australian extra vents, tropical cooling mod, are visible.

1970 Leyland 5-60F 5-Ton [FG]
Bluey (1976-1977)
So looking again at the relationship between Australian and UK FG models they seem similar in branding - 1970 Leyland FG would be a reasonable identification (although earlier Austin or Morris also possible).

Australian cabs appear to have extra vents; tropical cooling mod, either side of the 'snout' and an extra nameplate just before the door (similar to other Australian Austin FF models).

1970 Leyland 5-60F 5-Ton [FG]
Bluey (1976-1977)
Start date of 1961 would be possible if Australian production was in advance of UK, which was itself delayed (for what reason I don't know). Design was complete and the tooling would potentially be available. The 5-tonner FG was introduced at the time of the Scottish Motor Show in November 1961, but it only went into full production during 1963, after I believe the transfer of FG trucks from Birmingham to Bathgate.

Interesting also that Australian Leylands were known as the FM? I guess they adopted their own naming or alternatively BMC in the UK decided to remain with FG and only use FM for the post office application.

Googled photos show rectangular sidelights upto about E reg UK vehicles then round replacements - again Australia could be different but I had the idea that I have seen similar rectangular sidelights on Australian builds?

edit: sidelights here on this truck, I think do look different compared to UK possibly smaller...

Bluey (1976-1977)
the sad biker wrote It looks like the long-nose Morris FM version of the Austin/Morris/BMC/Leyland FG


Here in the FG K100 the 6-cylinder petrol or diesel engines were used in the 5-tonner, and the extra length required the addition of a "snout".

The Morris FM K40 was specific to PO telephones with an even longer snout for the three-seater cab, and the 4-cylinder engine moved forwards.

Austin 12/4 Taxi High Lot
A Royal Night Out (2015)
BYK291 is a genuine Austin taxi registration from 1935 however it appears to be a 'High Lot' chassis which ceased in 1933-34. The second thumbnail looks wrong to me and possibly a different car (windscreen not divided horizontally and different shape?).

Potentially ALE165 again with a false numberplate?

1971 Ford Escort Estate DER MkI
The Cuckoo Waltz (1975-1980)
I cannot say if rear seats were fitted but I thought the DER panels were removable as confirmed here...

"During the week, an employee would use the "van" as his office, however the "vans" were slightly more up market than your normal van. The estates were fitted with DER signs at the front and rear at the car, and lettered paneling over the side windows by the load carrying section of the vehicles. Clips and other fastenings were used to hold all motifs to the vehicle, and at weekends the employee could remove these and use the "van" as a family car.

Although the estate cars cost considerably more to buy than vans, on the whole the re-sale value remained higher, cars were more practical for employees and some suggested that the engines were better when comparing with a van."

In March 1950 an improved van was introduced...
"A feature of the modified 8-cwt and 12-cwt three-wheeled vans ... Body modifications include an enlarged windscreen, an all-metal dashboard, and locking door handles. The carrying space has been increased and the driver's seat is of a comfortable bucket type. Deeper side windows are fitted and the door windows are of safety glass.
.....
The name of "Regent" has been added to the latest vans."

1968 BMC FG 1½Ton Harrods Van
The Adventurer (1972-1973)
Other than to say its before 1970 when Harrods started using BMC JU250 vans no further information found, but agree with FG 1½Ton or Austin/Morris LD.

It does appear to have a LD front bumper and over-riders which was also used on this 1965 Morris FG 1½Ton Pantechnicon

Wheelbases were, LD Van 100", with the FG being 109" and 114".

To achieve the most likely identification (until another sighting is possible) I would say a longer wheelbase than the LD, so 1968 BMC FG 1½Ton Harrods Van, preceeding the BMC JU250 van.

1956 Helecs Helpmate Milk Float
Speaking of Britain (1967)
As dsl says, the Park Hill estate, Sheffield was built after the registration dates, and a smaller milk float already was in production.

Although I originally suggested it, I think 'custom made' does not appy as the walk-ways were probably designed to suit an existing milk float size (by one or more manufacturers).

The youtube link also shows the rear of another milk float of similar size at Park Hill 'RWM139' (late 1959 onwards) first registered in Stockport
[Image: rwm139parkhill.jpg]

...which was also the location of Ross Auto and Engineering, Ltd. so a possible connection there?

2001 Chrysler PT Cruiser
The 40 Year Old Virgin (2005)
This has come up previously...

In the USA the manufacturer's model year starting and end dates are specified by the manufacturer and the only requirement is it has to include January 1st of the actual calender year. Code of Federal Regulations 85.2302.

Therefore a model year can theoretically be almost two years long (less one day) either side of January 1st of the actual calender date.

Reasons for their specifying various start dates are for marketing or meeting specific regulations tied to model year introductions.

"§85.2302 DEFINITION OF MODEL YEAR.
Model year means the manufacturer's annual production period (as determined under §85.2304) which includes January 1 of such calendar year, provided, that if the manufacturer has no annual production period, the term “model year” shall mean the calendar year."

§ 85.2304 DEFINITION OF PRODUCTION PERIOD.
...The “annual production period” ... begins either: when any vehicle or engine within the engine family is first produced; or on January 2 of the calendar year preceding the year for which the model year is designated, whichever date is later.
The annual production period ends either: When the last such vehicle or engine is produced; or on December 31 of the calendar year for which the model year is named, whichever date is sooner."

Tamozhnya (1982)
De Luxe by the single coachline. Black wiper arms and wiper blades from 1974 so bright finish should indicate 1971-74. Front wings look 1971-74 to me.

Looks possibly like Tasman Orange (1971-74) a solid, non-metalic colour; also Tasman Orange was not available on every model and reserved for the Firenza coupe at least in the UK initially. Later in 1973-74 only it was also used on Viva standard, De Luxe and SL.

Tasman Orange, black (onyx) seat trim, Viva De Luxe 1973-4.

The 1932 'Aero' remained for another year before the Aero name looks to be dropped with the introduction of the 1933 Sports model; therefore 'Super Sports' (with aero screens) and 'Sports' (with a full width 'V' screen) being the model names.

Albion 30-cwts were common from 1927 as the type-40, normal control chassis, but 118 n/cont and 119 f/cont types were introduced in (or before) 1935. I cannot so far definitely identify an earlier forward control 30-cwt chassis in the 1931-1934 range. I suspect this is a type 119 chassis, and the introduction date was possibly before 1934.
