Sorry Ian never really liked them, they do sell well though and at good prices a lot seem to go to the wedding trade. You are correct also no more, they were made just up the road from me in Upholland near Wigan

I don't know Larry... Kinda looks like it already has a top on it, so maybe not as hard as you'd think. I bet it would look good topless though!

Re: The Car in the Father Brown mystery/drama series

Going back to the original post, this is Bunty & her car. A Sunbeam-Talbot roadster.

IMCDb.org: 1951 Sunbeam-Talbot 90 Drophead Coupé [Series II] in "Father Brown, 2013-2018"


I don't think the first picture is her, or her car!

Steve.

Re: The Car in the Father Brown mystery/drama series

Stephen, you may be right! The original car (Triumph) posted may have been a different car used in the production.
Just to confuse things, the actress that plays Bunty Emer Kenny says her character drives Jags.

Re: The Car in the Father Brown mystery/drama series

Hi,


The latest 2018 series (that finished on BBC1 a few weeks ago) was season 6, so a lot has gone on in previous five seasons.


I still miss Nancy Carroll as Lady Felicia...

Re: The Car in the Father Brown mystery/drama series

I certainly agree about Nancy Carroll. We get the series out of sequence from the original showings in the UK so Nancy is back on.
The car I originally sought to identify was the one pictured. I just assumed it was also Bunty's as that was how it was identified in Google. Apparently it was used on the show but elsewhere.
That said, the Triumph pictured is so stunning, I'm surprised they went from that to the comparatively dowdy TR 2-3.

The art deco era of auto styling also evokes a time of more elegance. Compare the "cars of the stars" from then to now...
