I would say this one is a Sentinel 4/4 DV Pantechnicon.

That's a great picture. Bishop's obviously kept their trucks for more than a year or two, and appeared to like Morrises.

No. 5 from the left is an unusual model, pre or post BMC?

Probably a 1953 Morris-Commercial LD Mk.I 1-ton & 1½-ton van chassis the fore-runner the the van on the extreme right the 1954 Morris LD1 & LD2 1 & 1½-Ton.

I cannot certain, but I don't think there was a Morris-Commercial 2-tonner or above having the same Morris-Commercial grille?

April 1952 looks to be the time of the introduction of BMC together with the Austin-Morris merger.

By courtesy of Grace's Guide, and proving that the pits of my memory still contain something for which it is worth hunting, the four ton chassis with the Morris face and what looks to be a Willenhall cab, and the LD with the same general design of grille. As I recall it, the petrol engined LD sounded pretty much like the earlier "shed on wheels" PV, so maybe the engine and transmission was carried through.

Well found johnfromstaffs I had only a vague idea those trucks ever existed with the similar grille. New cab for 5-tonner FV series 2, looks like it was introduced November 1953.

A fair representation by Corgi, dsl. Although the Bishop's coach-built cab looks to be wider without the elongated Morris style mud-guards.

The Morris LD mk.I was indeed based on the chassis components of the PV model, but with a bigger 2.2 litre four-cyl ohv engine developing 46 bhp, according to the CM Archive.
