A60 van - these retained the '50s styling right through to about 1973 when they were replaced by the Marina van. There was never a van version of the Farina body.

Austin ½-ton van, more closely based on the pre-Farina A55: note large wheels and more ornate hubcaps.

You can certainly rely on the South Americans for some odd variants of well known cars! In teresting that the one in the link has the Riley front end.
I haven't studied the variations of the Austin vans but somewhere along the line the A55 became the A60 - presumably when the 1500cc engine changed to the 1622. Some of them here in NZ had their life extended by fitting 1800s out of Marinas, although they are all gone now.

This is the SIAM Di Tella 1500 sedan of the 60s: note the Riley front end and the Austin rear! There was also a Magnette variant.

That was in 1962 (till 1972). There has also been a similar Morris ½-ton van from 1962 till 1971. Cf. http://www.austin-rover.co.uk/ , scroll down (on the left) to 'Feature galleries' > Light commercials, enter at 'car-derived vans/pick-ups', scroll down halfway.
