Bullitt Scene - Minor Spot?

Postby Chipper » Thu Mar 14, 2019 10:50 pm

Can anyone confirm, is a Morris Minor convertible parked up on the right-hand side of the road at 2'29" into this clip?

Certainty looks like one, well done.

Not many points for his parking skills.

…. earlier than Bullitt, but this 1954 road test is very positive.

I can't remember the last time I needed to haul an embalmed Chinaman and a stiff bull elk to a fireman's clambake.

don't think it is, the rear wings are too square and the boot is curved and sticks out longer i think

Its cited on IMCDB as a 1951 MM Tourer.
Here's a screenshot which I posted to a Minor group on Facebook a month or so ago.

I think that’s a Volvo PV544. Always nice to have a reason to watch that again.

At 2 mins 8 seconds to the right I spied an MGA rear end white?
But the one you spotted is a minor convertible I think.
