This is the very first car we see James Bond drive.

A chauffeur, mr. Jones, claiming to come from the Government House picks up James Bond when he arrives at Kingston Airport, Jamaica. 007 is suspicious about the pickup and and pretending to check his reservation, he contacts the Government House telling he might be a little delayed.

They are shadowed by another car, a Chevrolet Impala. Loosing the persuers and hiding from them, Bond confronts Jones, and they fight. When loosing the fight, the chauffeur comits suicide using cyanide hidden in a cigaret. Bond then drives the car to Government House.
