In the book of Dr No by Ian Fleming Strangways, the local Secret Service
man in Jamaica, drives a Sunbeam Alpine. He is murdered very early in
the film and Bond is allocated his car to use while investigating his
and his assistant's disappearance. In the film Sean Connery drives a
1962 model car. In 1955 when the book was written, this is what the car
would have looked like - except Strangways' car was black.
