The styling is very 1940s, but nobody was building sedans with rear-hinged 'suicide' front doors by that point. If it weren't for the doors, I'd say 1946-1948 Plymouth.

Some RR/Bentley for me. Do not pay attention to the door handles, since it is unlikely that any car was released with them in that order.

1946 to 1955 Rolls-Royce Silver Dawn and Bentley MkVI/R-type Standard Steel Saloons all had rear hinged front doors. A total of over 8,500 cars.

Many thousands of Traction Avant Citroëns built until 1955 also had this style of front door.

Riley RM Series cars, until 1955 also had these doors.

Mercédès-Benz 170/220 Saloons also had them.

Jaguar Saloons had rear hinged front doors until 1951.

The Armstrong Siddeley Sapphire 346 had them until 1959.

All Wolseley Series III Saloon Cars, built from the mid 1930s until 1948, had BOTH front and rear doors hinged at the back.

Then again, these are in essence pre-war designs that otherwise dealt with a conservative post-war audience. The Jowett Javelin and Renault 4CV (inspiring the later Fiat 600/500) would be better examples of typical 1940s designs with front suicide doors.

The RR and B cars were designed, from scratch, during the latter years of WW2, and while of conservative approach were not in any way pre-war as they were completely new and the company’s first attempts at all steel bodywork. The management at Royce’s had realised that the coachbuilding firms would not be able to supply in the quantities needed to ensure a suitable return on costs. Not only was the bodywork new, but the mechanics and independent front suspension were innovations (by Royce’s standards!) for sale into the 1950s. OK I do know about the P3 and the Bentley MkV.

The Sapphire was the second generation post war car from Armstrong Siddeley, following on from the Lancaster, Hurricane, Typhoon and Whitley models. The 59/60 Star Sapphire was re-engineered to have front hinged doors, but otherwise was quite similar to the previous version.

Your point is well made, but mine was made to illustrate the folly of making sweeping statements about such things, in light of the fact that this database may be used as a document of record.

Silver Wraith?

Yep, it's an extremely close. And this strange rear doors' handles position.
