In Ep.1.25 "Maigret et la grande perche"

Vauxhall Viscount?... but seems to be smaller.

I agree too small so not a Vauxhall Viscount. If it was a British car I would say the Hillman/Sunbeam Avenger would be the most similar in overall shape and size. Not enough detail to be certain I think.

Yes, I agree with Sunbar, it seems to be a 1970+ Sunbeam - as it was sold in France - 1500 or 1973+ 1600 ( judging by the four headlights ). I don't know exactly what was the model range in France, but this seems to be an upmarket version with its vinyl-covered roof, metallic paint, etc.

I agree, too. If you look at this ...
/vehicle.php?id=126038
you can see just a little more of the side; and the indicator's in the right place, as well.

So how do we enter it? Sunbeam 1500 or 1600?

:??: I pass. So far as I know there's absolutely no difference externally.

"L'Automobile - Salon 72" lists it for 1973 as 1500 TC ( the model wasn't mentioned the year before ).

Obrigado. I should have known that, having owned both an Avenger 1250 (1973) and a 1300 (1976) ... presumably the 1500 became a 1600 at the same time. :/

De nada. ;) As far as I know, it happened in October 1973 ( considered 1974 model year ). From what I could find, I think it started its career in France only in the 2nd half of 1972 ( although it was launched in the UK as Hillman Avenger in 1970 ).

I wonder how many other cars have been sold under so many manufacturers' brand names? Hillman, Sunbeam, Chrysler, Talbot, Plymouth, Dodge, Volkswagen ... :think:
