Unknown car in unknown movie, based on 1950 Sunbeam Talbot 90
Published 19/06/2023 @ 17:55:48, By antp
Hi,
More than two years ago I received this by e-mail, I suggested to post it in the forum but I think in the end it was never posted here, now I'm cleaning some old mails so I post it myself for the owner:

I recently purchased this car below. It is based on a 1950 Sunbeam Talbot 90, but a new aluminium sports body was made apparently for a movie. However the history is lost, and I am trying to find out what that movie was.

I have searched your extensive database as well as I can and I cannot find anything under Sunbeam. I was wondering if you have any smart ways of searching the whole database?

Here is what I know about the car:
Based on a 1950 Sunbeam Talbot 90
Rebodied for a movie somewhere between 1995 and 2005
The work was privately done, not by Sunbeam, so could be called anything!
A one-off car. No other cars like this were built.

Can confirm the car details:
We've identified this vehicle using the details you provided
SUNBEAM TALBOT 90 1950
Registration number: KLJ 826
Body type: Sports
Colour: Red
Date of first registration: September 1950

... and this 2019 auction listing gives the info and photos.

However no trace of it among our Sunbeams or Sunbeam-Talbots, nor anything referencing KLJ 826 plate. So maybe we don't have the film yet??

Possible indeed. I've put it here so in case some day one of use sees it in a movie, maybe he'll remember this thread. And so I can also contact the owner to give the info.

Or it is already listed in a movie, but without its plate visible, somewhere in the "unknown" category :grin:

Once I'd worked out how to line them up, I looked through our unknown convertibles in films dated from about 1993 to 2007, but nothing obvious. Maybe not watertight - for instance it might have appeared in a series with longer date runs or not listed as convertible if only partly visible. Nothing in "Made for Movie" convertibles either, and I've exhausted all the tricks I can think of which could find it.
