    The police car featured in this clip is a Triumph 2.5PI Mark II.

    The sight of an "L"-registered Lancia Fulvia at 02:07 dates this footage as being from at least August 1972.

    EHV 758J this registration was first registered during the period August 1970 to July 1971.

    Looking at the flyover complex my guess guess is that filming is taking place in the vicinity of the Westway, a 3.5-mile (5.6 km) long elevated dual carriageway section of the A40 route in west London running from Paddington to North Kensington. The road was constructed between 1964 and 1970 to relieve congestion at Shepherd's Bush caused by traffic from Western Avenue struggling to enter central London on roads of insufficient capacity. Westway opened in July 1970.
