Possibly another Bedford OWL, skinny tyres and lower ride height. 2017-04-11 11:37

1955 Austin 5-Ton 503 [FE]
Goodbye Pork Pie (1980)
From dsl's comment here /vehicle_751887-Austin-5-Ton-FE-1955.html - 5-ton for Australian assembly.

dsl wrote Aus assembly of FE was 1955-59 in 5.0 to 7.0 Ton versions as 503 to 701. . No FV II assembly.

Homicide (1964-1976)
Austin 3-Ton or 5-Ton [FE] introduced March 1955.

From the thumbnail, it probably has six-stud wheels so 3-Ton rather than eight studs as on the heavier trucks.

1952 Vauxhall Velox [EIPV]

Full width nameplate under the bonnet badge makes it a Velox IMHO.....

(...also a bright rear screen surround, however in bright sunlight I guess rubber could cause some sort of reflection if wet).

Best identification 1954-1957 Albion Claymore FT25. It appears to have a special crew-cab for seating 4-5, so probably a small furniture delivery van for local London area work.

Otley (1968)
Enlarging the picture, it looks to be 6x2 Reynolds Boughton with low loading height, trailing third axle and 16" wheels. Which probably has 'Reynolds Boughton' on the white plate on the grille.

1946 Guy unknown

1946 Guy unknown
British Legends of Motorsport (1991)
...or Vixen

"The 'Vixen' had forward control, and could carry a 30 seater body." http://www.historywebsite.co.uk/Museum/Transport/commercial/Guy/guyhistory6.htm

Radiator badge size looks to be after 1946.

A search on 'bus lists on the web' indicates Guy Vixens mostly registered between 1946-1949; about twenty 28-30 seat busses, one Wolf and one Otter. Between 1950 and 1955 very few Wolfs, Vixens and Otters are shown. However I guess not all bus fleets are represented

This Happy Breed (1944)
Agreed, for what is seen.

The cab to me looks to be a mixture well crafted bits (doors and roof) plus a front windscreen that is very dodgy. No door hinges to be seen plus the rear to me suggests it is a low-built saloon based van.

It could also just be a temporary movie buck used only in a studio.

This Happy Breed (1944)
Best match so far is possibly this 1934 Austin Ten Van

AEC S-Type, it has a slightly longer upper-deck that extends over the rear platform compared with the K-type which is of equal length.

Also the small rear glass is of a slightly larger area compared with the K-type.

Agreed, 1957 to 1962 I believe.

Rear lights small chromed base from 1957 (to 1964); small clearance rear wheel-arch from 1957.

Trafficator (just visible?) deleted late 1961.

1959 Leyland Comet LAD Cab - Gibson Pendulum Refuse Truck
Britain Welcomes the President of Pakistan (1966)
Pictures look to have twin rear wheels, I doubt any Comet had single rear as the LAD 'Vista-View' cab Comets, when introduced in late 1959, were either Comet 7-Ton (12-Ton gvw) or Super Comet 9-Ton (14-Ton gvw).

johnfromstaffs, you were correct I believe about it being a dustcart.
After looking to find http://www.classicrefusetrucks.com/b2/dg.html using the better images I think its possibly a Gibson Pendulum refuse truck

The linkage is just visible I think.

1959 Leyland Comet LAD Cab - Gibson Pendulum Refuse Truck
Britain Welcomes the President of Pakistan (1966)
Albion Chieftain or Clydesdale would be long door 'cab before engine' LAD cab.

Short door LAD cab as here, should be a Leyland Comet 4x2 'cab over engine'.

Not sure thia is a refuse truck the extended cab looks unlikely for easy access and the body could be some other special purpose body?

1955 Bedford A 2
L'inconnue de Hong Kong (1963)
1955 onwards by the later higher side lights as indicated by JCB.

Bedford A2 and single rear wheels. The short lived Bedford D2 was almost externally identical, only a registration date or close-up of the area over the front bumper would possibly identify it.
2017-03-18 13:46
1959 Bedford J5
Het jaar van de kreeft (1975)
The truck here is a TJ - Bedford J5, J6 or J7 by the higher ride-height - larger wheels and rounded front wings.

eLMeR wrote What are the differences between J,TA and TJ series?

'J' and 'TJ' are the same. Vauxhall-Bedford added the T (for truck) prefix to distinguish them from the car (E, F, H etc.) and van (CA and CF) chassis , however it often appears without the T prefix. They were all internal chassis codes which initially were not well publishised, unlike the later 'TK'.

A-type or TA - normal control trucks, 1-ton to 5-ton 1953-1957
C-type or TC - forward control trucks, 4-ton to 7-ton 1957-1960 (replaced the S-type which never was the 'TS' as far as I know).
D-type or TD - normal control trucks, 1-ton to 6-ton 1957-1959 (replaced the TA).
J-type or TJ - normal control trucks, 1-ton to 6-ton 1959-1988 (replaced the TD).

Later, finally the forward and normal-control ranges were prominatly advertised as the 'TK' and 'TJ' (but they later advertised the heavier TKM as the 'KM' preferring to drop the T.)
