JD 4146 = 1934. Any ideas for the one parked further back on right??

On the right is a Ford Model A, hard to see whether it is just an A or an AA.

The van I first thought Bedford but going by the Morrie 8 in the foreground, maybe a slightly bigger hp Morris??

I agree with you that it looks Morris. The problem is that the 8/10cwt snub nosed van based on the Cowley bullnose underpinnings died in 1934 to be replaced by the semi forward control 8/10 cwt van based on the Morris Twelve, and neither model looks like this.

I don't think it is a Morris radiator, although what it is I cannot think!

My attempts at recognising any Morris 8-10cwt van is taking a hit currently, johnfromstaffs!

It appears to have been an interim model between the snub-nosed Cowley based van and the semi-forward control Morris 8-10cwt series 2 van introduced in 1935.

1934 Morris 8-10cwt van; 4-cyl 1,802cc 13.9hp.

The appearance seems similar to the Morris 1934-35 10-4 saloon (1,292cc 9.9hp) unless you know a better match for the engine itself?

1802cc is the capacity of the 13.9hp 4 cylinder side valve engine used in various Cowley/Oxford/Commercial iterations between 1923 and the late thirties. This van looks too big to be based upon the 1933 Ten-Four chassis.

A continuation of the earlier Morris Light Van then and introduced in September 1932
