Back to the film clip that originally started this string: I may be repeating someone else's observation but notice that in the short scenes leading up to the Healey's being shown resting on its hood the wheels are disc whereas later they are wire wheels. I will say I am jealous that they somehow got the rubber windshield molding to lie flat against the scuttle--something with which I am still struggling.

Also where is the knurled knob in the windshield stanchion--was it removed to make filming easier as was the flap on the very front corner of the hood which seems to be pulled up in some way?

Ok, I didn't find a Healey, but this is a not so great movie I watched with my wife a couple nights ago that is great for early 60s Brit and Euro car spotting. I kept blurting out "oh cool, that is a ...." https://www.imcdb.org/movie_2095649-Grace-of-Monaco.html

Samples on the IMCDB, but nice scenes in the movie, and probably more than a few not already listed.

There should have been a Healey in there as Princess Grace actually owned one: https://www.britishcarforum.com/bcf...-Healeys&p=877232&highlight=monaco#post877232

Side note: I've been watching the 'Mysteries of Apollo' on (I think) the Science Channel. Many/most of the participants/commenters were Brits; I had no idea they contributed so much to the program (including the head of the electronics design team--who knew?).

Maybe 20 +/- years ago the TV series "Pointman" was filmed in the parking lot across from my office. They paid me $180.00 to use my Healey 100 in the episode. I wonder if this could be found?

Is that really your car, Keoke?


Yep Rick:
That is my Lil RED 1966 MK 11 BJ8 , man what a production it was---:applause:

Similarly , My 1966 Daimler 250 V8 { Lady Grey } was used in The Life story of Sir Elton John. I was unable to get copies of that production

That's very cool. I always wonder what happened to the cars that appear in these movies and videos.
