The car on the left is not hard but you'll be going some to get the one on the right, it isn't what I thought at all.

52 Chevrolet (Fleetline or a Styleline Deluxe ?) and the other one is indeed quite unusual I would imagine....

Yup, '52 Chevy Styleline is correct. I figured you'd get the other one.

Standard Vanguard (had to read the emblem), odd sight even when weird little British things weren't uncommon.

Looks like a scaled-down 1953 Plymouth!

Yes indeed, it was known as a Standard Vanguard Phase 3 (1955-58). The Standard name was phased out in favor of Triumph in the 50s. Before it was absorbed into British Leyland the company was known as Standard Triumph Ltd.
It does look like a scaled down American car. My first thought was that it was a Hudson Jet.
