"This film is a dramatised documentary about life in the crofting community of Invergair" - Invergair is a made-up name but it is set

around Loch Maree and Poolewe. Nothing on imdb, but https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CaOwJ1uOY3E and http://movingimage.nls.uk/film/0112 . About 18 minutes long but seems to have technical problems - some jumps as if bits snipped and soundtrack sometimes gets way ahead of pictures. Timings are therefore approximate depending which version.

I've had to mix and match captures for quality reasons from both sources above and a third site which has some incomplete clips, so picture dimensions may vary.

... if any of them match, it could be a crew car.

The prewar trucks look more Luton than Dagenham to me, the newer one is sort of Thames or Dodge-ish, the black car could be the same Series II Wolseley, a six cylinder I think.

The first truck behind the croft and seen more clearly is a Bedford, a WHG or WLG probably.

The platform truck seen from the side is less certain; it could be a Commer Q3 Superpoise I think (or less likely Austin or Bedford).

The truck at 00-28 looks quite new (1950s) but cannot place it currently.

edit: Possibly another Dodge 100 'Parrot-Nose' - they appear to have sidelights mounted on top of the wing rather than lower down.
