Side indicators with Leyland wing badge and shiny wheel trim rings seem about 1973 from our collection.

Side indicators appear from 1970, the small BL badges from 1971 to 1975 (but also frequently missing or removed).

A smaller plain rectangular grille badge was used from about 1973, it has I believe a diagonal script Austin grille badge so should be 1971-1972 as my best guess for this taxi but should be close I think as car is very recent to filming date.

Trying to work out what the chromed disc is below the door handles, a secondary lock perhaps? Getting my eyes tested tomorrow perhaps that will help.

^ The 'chromed disc' could be two separate door edge protectors mounted on the shut-line perhaps?

Don't know if I remember them right but in the 1960s they could have been sold as white rubber triangular mouldings with red reflectors at the trailing edge?
