UK plates so not made for France. Format is 1234 AB, with AB looking like FW (not issued), KW (April 63-April 64) or RW (Feb 61-May 62). Dates match Alpine S2 or S3, but fuel filler position looks 1961+ S2.

Probably RW, as it's a Warwickshire reg. Maybe a factory car?

Agree it looks most like RW and the issue dates for RW fit the film (particularly if filming happened in 1962 eg the Austin Healey Sprites), but Rootes did not use RW much for factory cars, if at all - KV, WK, DU, HP Coventry issues were much more common.
