Looks like a Formula Junior or maybe Formula Ford. Don't know the model number. Odd to see them on plain wheels, or else they are just there to move them around on during construction.

Probably 1966 (film date) batch of Lotus 31 built for F3 but could be its 1967 cousin Lotus 51 built for Formula Ford; although the first FF race didn't happen until July 67, half the field were Lotus 51 so production must have been happening for a few months. See also https://www.bonhams.com/auctions/14261/lot/236/?category=list . Slave wheels were used in the factory, but FF was a budget category to start with so road wheels were used.
