It looks so much like an Opel that it must be a Vauxhall.

Not a Vauxhall. Looks to be a 1954 Buick - maybe?

Definitely a Buick. With this body type and trim it could only be a 1954 or 1955 Roadmaster or Super. It looks like it's missing the chrome trim on the bottom of the window sill which would rule out the 1954.
Production figures for the 1955 Super 4-Door Sedan was 43280 and for the 1955 Roadmaster 4-Door Sedan was 31717, not that big difference to rule out one or the other I'd guess? Maybe it can be ruled out by sales figures from the UK?

I've no useful info on mid-50s Buicks in UK in terms of models. My guess is everything was available through special order via Lendrum & Hartman in London, with Glass's listing additional dealers in Manchester, Leeds, Birmingham and Glasgow. Does the idea that UK cars were probably CDN production narrow it down??
