uhm ... still a SII or SIIA ... thus either post-1958 or post-1961. I'd tend to the latter :)

Then probably the wish was father of the thought! :) It probably was part of the bumper and side-lights that gave me the impression of chrome rings.

Series II or IIa is difficult to say, unless we know when the RAC bought their radio patrol vehicles. As the filming started in 1960 I would take the Series II to be on the safe side.

The bugeye was never sold in the UK. That model was unique to the US and a couple of continental countries, Belgium and Holland if I remember correctly.
