Vauxhall Light Six.

The Vauxhall's registration is BYU 888, issued in London some time after July 1935. This model, an example of Vauxhall Light Six (DY/DX series) was introduced in late 1934 and was offered in two main versions, the 12hp Light Six (12/6 DY) and 14hp Light Six (14/6 DX), following on from the earlier ASY/ASX six-cylinder Vauxhalls. Saloon and Saloon De Luxe specifications were offered in both 12hp and 14hp form, with prices for the 12hp saloon starting at 205.

1936/1936 Vauxhall Light Six car photo
The location of this photograph is Bexhill. Another similar photograph shows a group of six people stood with the car, the chap shown above - with the pipe - presumably the photographer. A close look at the Vauxhall reveals its bootlid partially open, with a Kodak Brownie camera resting on its offside running board.
