We have few Bedford O, few O-Series, and few O-Type. Shouldn't all of these be listed in the same way? Or are they different models?

You are right to point it out. They should be listed in the same way ... but it is not so easy ...

The cab is used for the K, M and O Type/Series. The letter describes the chassis and weight class.
Here at CCMV they are named 'Type', unless the exact chassis name is known, usually two or three letters, like 'KD', 'MLD', 'MSD', 'OST', 'OLB', etc.
I have no information how to keep them apart from just looking at them.

To cut a long story short: let's use letter-Type, unless we have a confirmed full letter code.

It sure looks like an Anglia [100E], but there is something strange with the front. The headlights have chrome rims and the indicators seem to be realy seperated from them. Also the writing on the front wings is a bit strange. I'd tend to a Ford Thames van version of the Anglia.

You could be right, Mike.

It is certainly very likely to see a van next to a warehouse.

Cannot dispute the logic of van and warehouse, also chromed headlamp bezels (which I don't remember before on 100E saloons or 300E vans) appear on this example......

(The larger separation for the indicators maybe because its a reflection in the chrome headlamp bezel I think.)

The chrome nameplate on the rear of the front wing however can be seen on some 100E saloons (for example 1957) others have a triangular or 'V' motif. I guess its also possible on the vans (edit... The chrome nameplate on a van is actually shown in Alexander's link).
