It's right hand drive, which seems strange as the film was made in Shanghai. My guess is it's a British Ford AA in disguise.

This Ford AA could be a genuine survivor from pre-war China, because some parts of the country drove on the left before 1946.
Quote Until 1946, driving in mainland China was mixed, with cars in the northern provinces driving on the right (probably to concur with Russian practice, which was "keep right" from 1920), and cars in the southern provinces such as Guangdong driving on the left, probably a result of their proximity to the British crown colony of Hong Kong and the Portuguese exclave of Macau.

After 1946, China followed the United States, by changing to driving on the right, due to political reasons that the United States helped China to fight against Japanese occupation during World War II and American cars (mostly LHD) were already popular in the mainland.

This photo of Shanghai in 1920 shows trams driving on the left and a right hand drive bus, also on the left hand side of the road.
