Flying Standard. I shall need to get amongst the books to work out which.

Probably a Fourteen, Sixteen or Twenty due to the type of doors.

Stockport, Jan to September 1938.

Since the car was probably scrapped off after its accident, twenty year old Flying Standards with largish engines not being particularly desirable at the time it’s unlikely to be in recent collector’s car sales, but I’ll have a look.

Take your choice from the models available in 1938.

From what I can find a Fourteen (four-cylinder) or Twenty (six-cylinder), probably a Fourteen?

Some information that the bonnet length of the six-cylinder Twenty was longer than the Fourteen's, although brochure illustrations are often not accurate for length, a recent Twenty photograph looks longer than the movie car.

(Wheels)... the new Fourteen were Easiclean types .... used for the first time by Standard (they were only ever used on the Fourteen and Twenty models from 1937 to 1939). http://www.wheels-alive.co.uk/flying-standards-a-transformative-range/

Not a V-8 Twenty since that had a wider grille with a chrome plated surround, not narrower grille and painted surround.
