THE AUSTIN PRINCESS HEARSE

IN THE PRISONER: In the opening sequence, and the episode "Do Not Forsake Me", a Hearse follows Number Six's Lotus to his home. In "Fall Out", a hearse is seen passing by Number Six's house at the end of the episode .
IN REALITY: The Hearse used in the series' opening sequence is an Austin Princess Limousine Hearse (similar to one which appears in The Beatles film "Help!") and has the registration plate TLH 858. The Hearse used in "Fall Out", although the same make, had the number-plate 289 ALW and was thus not the same one used in the opening titles of the Series. Each was fitted with Vanden Plas luxury interiors. This particular model was actually manufactured between 1947 & 1956 : http://www.motorbase.com/vehicle/by-id/275/
