Straight line on top of door suggests Daimler/Lanchester but not easy to tell.

Maybe a Rootes group product - late 1930s Hillman or ????

All the ones I could find had a cutaway in the door.

I think it might be a Standard Flying Twelve drophead coupé.

This is the later model with the fencer's mask grille, earlier ones had a two piece grille with a vertical division.

Enlarging it the vehicle's front wings and grille looks more like a Hillman Minx and not a Flying Standard?
