Sunbeam rapier and Vauxhall Wyvern i believe.The Wyvern had a Morris badge on the trunk which was a bit confusing but my gut said Vauxhall and Wiki confirmed it.

Apologise for pic quality,some of these were shot from moving vehicles ie. double decker bus.
Not sure about this brown looking car but might be Austin or Ford

And now for the one that completely outfoxed me,this is a LLoyd i have never heard of it but thought it might be a Brit car,turns out that the company was around in the fifties and was a German outfit called LLoyd Hartnett,apparently the Aussies got hold of the tooling and produced them there for a while,thing about this one is it looks too modern or the Cubans have maybe done an update on it?
