Picture submitted by waddy2001 on the forum. Link to "forum.imcdb.org"

Quote It's in the scene where the pilots, four of them, are heading off to the Flamingo for the first time. The car is a four door MG/Morgan type. I see lots of two door MGs here but there's nothing like that with four doors. If anyone can ID it, I would be very appreciative. (Attached image's curves have been adjusted since the scene was at twilight, supposedly.)

Looks like a c.1936 Riley Lynx Tourer.

Lynx or Nine Lynx??

Nine Lynx. I can't remember whether this applied to the Lynx, but several models were available in Nine and Fifteen versions, e.g. Lincock.

The Lynx tourer body could be fitted to the Nine, the Twelve-Six, the 1 1/2 Litre, the Fourteen-Six, the Fifteen-Six and the Big Four.

Following the takeover of Riley by Nuffield, whose business was aligned to making profits rather than cars, Riley's model range was severely pruned.

I chanced across this MG SA by Charlesworth on fleabay Link to "www.ebay.co.uk"

The profile and door shapes look pretty close, but no rad to check make. Charlesworth did a few variations on this style.

High mounted rear lights, with 2nd on right only. Offset square rear plate looks 1234 A format (all of which as issued are 1953 or later so a re-registration if genuine) or ABC x format where x is a single digit.

I made my own screen capture of this episode as part of my Foyle's War collection.

With some limited sort of idea there appears to be a letter 'L' as the end of the top line.
Perhaps something like (x)ML (n) or (x)NL (n) (x)= unknown single letter (n) unknown single number.

ANL was the only pre-war xNL combination (from July 39); xML ran from AML (1933) to KML (1939) so is more likely.

Almost certainly 'ABL 6' 1936 Riley Lynx 12/4 tourer

For it to be a Riley Lynx 12/4 tourer it would need to be a late 1935 car registered in 1936 (12/4 chassis) rather than the new 1 litre chassis.

Further on this car, a friend saw this car a few weeks ago. It seems to be a Riley Lynx but the spare tire isn't in the right place. The hood ornament and lines look the same though. This one looks to be in fine shape.

Riley Motor Club magazine "The Riley Record" June 2016 issue was pleased to discover that we have this car posted, and keeps the reference to it as a 12/4 Lynx so we've probably got it right.

This is (was) a 1936 Adelphi Saloon, cut down to look like a 12/4 Lynx. Reasonably well done, but one can tell that it has the wide-track chassis and axles. So, I suggest describing it as a 1936 Riley 12/4 Special.
