The first one looks like the early Mini 850cc that I used to own. I didn't have the make up drawer in my dashboard!!

For the first one, a clue is that 57 of this modified version were produced.

The first one is a Riley Elf convertible.

Is the third one a Panhard? I want to say it's French but I don't know a regular Panhard like this.

I'm guessing from the sidelight design the 5th one is a Hooper version of the Humber Sceptre, possibly done for Daimler.

The pale green "spaceship" is a 3-wheel Davis. You could seat 4 people across the bench seat! The scheme to build them crashed amid scandal and court cases. Amazingly, they also made a jeep with a single front wheel for the military, and I believe Reliant was in the frame to buy the assets at one point!

I read all about this in a French magazine when I was 16 (35 years ago), as practice for my French 'O'-level, so it sticks in my mind despite me probably mistranslating most of it!

The Rootes car looks like a Sunbeam Venezia to me.

Connections with Jensen include the design being by Touring of Milan, just a few years before they designed the Interceptor. Another connection is a still-born scheme to have the production carried out by Jensen - as chief engineer Kevin Beattie was recently ex-Rootes, I can see why this would be a logical decision.

1, Wolseley Hornet, convertible, by Crayford
2, Looking at the layout, could this be a special bodied Fiat 600 Multipla?
3,?? I can see the Panhard connection with the detailing around the lights, or how about a Simca?
4, Davis, as already recognized.

A common mistake. I may not know much about cars, but I do know the names of Trumpton firemen. :D

Twins, such details were lost on me at 5 years old, Dinky 188 FF in hand.
