1960 Austin LD Ambulance Wandsworth MkII
The Baron (1966-1967)
Early Wandsworth ambulances as follows...

Mk.I prototype registered LLA 230 and 231 were from late 1956 to mid-1957.
Mk.II prototype registered LLA 240 and 241 were from late 1958 to mid-1959.
Mk.III introduced before 1964

LLA 331 is probably from about 1960 or later and is shown as a Mk.II by the side-lights and turn signals under the headlights.

Titanic Town (1998)
A special 'LD ambulance' chassis only or chassis-scuttle was introduced in January 1964 as Austin or Morris, then BMC. It had a new rear axle with a differencial that was offset to allow a lower-height central floor area. 2014-08-08 17:12
1954 Morris-Commercial LD1 Ambulance Appleyard
Danny the Champion of the World (1989)
This is the 1953 to 1954 Morris 30cwt van with the original Morris vertical grille similar to the J-type van.

http://ccmv.aecsouthall.co.uk/p1062567003/h386B477F#h386b477f

The Morris 'LD1' model name was introduced for the first time in July 1953 ten months after it was introduced in September 1952. Two years later in September 1954 the Austin and Morris LD with the horizontal grilles was introduced.

1955 Austin LD
Every Day Except Christmas (1957)
September 1954 for the introduction of the Austin (and slightly different Morris) LD with the horizontal grilles.

Therefore a very early example and also an early appearance in a movie, most other appearances are in the 1960s at least.

1955 Morris LD Ambulance Wadhams
A Time to Heal (1963)
September 1954 for introduction of Austin and Morris LD with the horizontal grilles.

Previously the Morris 30cwt van from September 1952 to September 1954 had the original Morris vertical grille similar to the J-type van. The Morris 'LD1' model name was introduced for the first time in July 1953.

My guess is blue-grey, although there are a lot of other possibilites.

Cream most common , green unusual, light blue, blue or dark blue fairly common - etc.

Austin and Morris commonised grille about 1967 although the windscreen sticker says 1958 but then again superb condition - 'one owner' could be true! 2014-08-07 11:36
1955 Morris LD Ambulance Wadhams
A Time to Heal (1963)
Both ambulances, FG and LD, have the early 'Morris only' grille, (later the Austin grille was used for both Austin and Morris).

1951 Austin K4 Loadstar MkII
Piccadilly Third Stop (1960)
JCB wrote Yes but bigger K3 or K4


K3 Loadstar did not exist I believe.

Introduced in 1949 the series II K4 Loadstar was a 2-tonner or 4-5 tonner only (unless introduced later but unlikely).

The series I Austin K3 was only a wartime 1939-45 truck either civilian type or military K3, after 1946 the K3 became the K4 truck as a 4-5 tonner in long wheelbase, and short wheelbase tipper and tractor as far as I can determine. Plus steel shortages limited production significantly and there appeared to be a significant number of ex-wartime 3-tonners that were re-conditioned or just put into civilian use.

Not K2 Loadstar I think, but the K4 Loadstar 4-5 tonner looks like the eight-stud wheel.

Registration looks to be only 2-3 years old when filmed? But truck looks considerably older or well worn a wrecker or recovery lorry thats been re-registered possibly?

Almost certainly 1946-1949 by the bonnet sides.

1954 Thames ET6 4D
Look at Life: Any Old Iron? (1962)
Conclusions to date from past 'Commercial Motor' reports and adverts.

(1) 'Fordson Thames' ET6 Introduced September 1949
(2) June 1950 'Thames' replaces 'Fordson Thames' which lasted only 9 months.
(3) Fordson Thames ET6 as first introduced in September 1949 clearly shows the three chromed highlights on alternating grille bars. Why some or any trucks should be missing these bars is not clear.
(4) Perkins 6 cylinder diesel introduced September 1951 on 5-tonner. Perkins 4 cylinder not fitted by Ford on 1½-ton, 2-ton or 3-ton trucks. Some conversions to petrol engined models were however carried out.
(5) The side-bonnet chromed 'flash' badge was added in November 1953 with the Ford 4-cylimder "Cost Cutter" petrol engine on 1½-ton, 2-ton or 3-ton trucks.
(6) The side-bonnet chromed 'flash' badge was added prior to or during March 1954 to Ford diesel 4D and 6D engines.
(7) '4D' 4 cylinder Ford diesel engines were used on the 1½-ton trucks and vans (single rear wheels), 2-ton trucks and vans also 3-ton trucks.
(8) '6D' 6 cylinder Ford diesel engines were used on the 5-6 tonner.

Every Day Except Christmas (1957)
Right hand side - 1954 without 4D badge petrol 2 or 3-ton Ford 'Cost Cutter' petrol engined or 5-6 ton 6 cylinder Ford petrol engine.

Left hand side 1949 'Fordson Thames' or 1950 'Thames' V8 side-valve petrol or Perkins diesel (no external differences).

1954 Thames ET6 4D
Return To Life (1959)
JCB wrote I'd be quite happy to call every one a Thames ET6 or Thames ET7 ( If diesel ).
I know we like accuracy but everyone calls them ET6's in UK anyway. .


If ET6 is the 'common' name then I think we should continue with that for both petrol and diesel.

1954 Thames ET6 4D
Return To Life (1959)
^^^
All adverts after June 1950 consistantly dropped the Fordson name.

[Image: fordsonet6.jpg]

'Fordson Thames' name dropped April-May 1950 in favour of 'Thames' but with "Built by Ford" featured in advertising.

edit: Additional model change information.

The side-bonnet chromed 'flash' badge were apparently added with the Ford 4-cylimder "Cost Cutter" petrol and Ford diesel 4D/6D engines November 1953-March 1954. (Unless proved otherwise based on/from Commercial Motor adverts.)

1949 onwards for the three alternating chromed grille bars making an appearance on vehicles. The illustration of the Fordson Thames in September 1949 clearly shows these three chromed highlights on alternating grille bars.

1954 Thames ET6 4D
Return To Life (1959)
Currently we have 26 Thames trucks plus 19 Fordsons listed as ET6 some of which will also be Perkins diesels or where the front is not seen Ford diesels.

Otherwise we have 21 Thames and 2 Fordsons listed as ET6 4D which more correctly should be March 1954 onwards ET7 4D (or 6D).

In the last year or so the trucks took the 502E/503E?? chassis codes in common with later Ford thinking.

Each one needs reviewing and probably a decision to specify ET6 (i.e. petrol) where its not clear if petrol or diesel is accurate.

Comments or other observations welcome...

edit: The trucks over 4-tons both petrol and diesel were all 6-cylinder so 6D is valid.

I am happy if we decide to continue to use ET6 4D or 6D for diesels as I think ET7 is less well known as a model designation. Its simpler and easier to apply and most people will recognise it.
