Looks very like an Austin FX3 taxi or the FL1 hire car /vehicle_18934-Austin-FX3-1947.html

It does indeed. Did they make LHD versions of it?

I don't think there was the demand to build any, so I doubt any LHD versions of the FX3 were made (although a few of the later FX4 models were made for export). It was however not unusual to export them for their novelty value as 'London Taxis' by companies for tourist use.

All the details match so I guess the FX3 as far fewer FL1 versions were made.

A few FX3 ran in New York in the 1950s, so it is quite likely that other countries got their share, too.

500 were exported to Spain, with the majority going to Madrid
