Yes - PL17.

Actually the small badge on the front identifies this as a 1964 (or 1965) model, and therefore it's a 17 (without PL) [L6]. Looks like there is some bright strip in the windscreen rubber: Relmax.

Btw, I guess this is the Spanish-French border in La Junquera. If we'd happen to see a white Hillman Super Minx with a trailer (not a caravan ;) ) I might have been in that car. I was there with my parents in 1968...

No chance it might have been a 105E Anglia - background of /vehicle_350822-Ford-Zephyr-6-213E-1962.html ....

17 or PL17, it's just a very small detail that tell them apart (only the front badge), and in fact it is the same car... Pnahrd changed PL17 to 17 to get the name similar to the 24 series, that's all.
And of course it would have been too much of a coincidence to see our very own Super Minx driving around here... ;)

What was the Relmax anyway? In UK, Sept 63 saw Deluxe and Tiger discontinued, leaving only the Tiger S 'Sports', now with bonnet badge as above plus a new non-reflective dash.

In France (and I think the car shown here has a French license plate) there were four 1964 versions: 17 Luxe, Super Luxe, Relmax and Relmax S. Only the Relmax (and Relmax S) had the chrome strip around the windscreen, and other extras like chromed gutter rail, covered glove cases in the dashboard, a second interior light, an electric clock, a key-operated starter, a furnished trunk, extra comfortable front seats (and the Relmax S also had metallic paint and fake-leather upholstery). On the Relmax and Relmax S there was also the option of the Tigre engine (60 bhp instead of 50 bhp).
Model year 1965 had the Confort S (or Confort S Tigre) instead of the Relmax.
