Austin Cambridge or Morris Oxford. Based on the fact that the trim appears to come to a stop at the rear door, I'd say it's the Austin.

Bear in mind that kind of detail might not show up on film of this age and quality (and the car is some distance away).

I'd also say Austin.

... and me for colour. Looks 63+ suffix plate, possibly F = 67-68.

I know it looks a bit like it could be F-reg but given how visible the plate is I don't think we can be too sure (pixellation could be affecting the way it appears). We'll list it by the model's start year - what is it?

Is it really so much effort to click on the name and see what the others are listed as? :p

Well, I didn't know if the others were earlier versions or not.

But, if you disregard the F suffix and regard the plate as totally illegible, then logically this car has to go further back and start as an A55 Countryman [ADO9A]. And a reasonably plausible identification disappears into generic porridge.

Did the A55 Countryman look the same as the A60 from this angle? Didn't quite understand that "generic porridge" comment by the way.

Alright, shall we change it back? This episode is from 1974, would an A55 or an '62 A60 probably be a rusted banger by this time? I'm not familiar with these old cars from before my time, all I've heard (from my dad) is cars didn't last as long back then (apparentely they rusted quickly).

That's why it's good to have pensioners on the site. They can be useful.

If the sills weren't originally painted black, here the owner made a desperate try to avoid that fate.

I think I'm going to ignore the implications of that remark.
That said, whether A55 (1959-61) or A60 (1961-9), some owner who liked it or found it particularly suitable for his purposes might well have lavished some care on it, including undersealing the sills, always a sensible precaution on British cars of this generation.
