1946 Guy Vixen Tower Wagon - Liverpool Corporation Body

The earlier Guy Wolf chassis as determined by Liverpool's probable filming loctation.

[Image: guytowerwagonliverpool.jpg]

The tower wagon is different in some details but the diagonally placed ladders look the same so possibly later than 1939.
Guy Wolf Tower Wagon Loverpool Corporation

"A new and original type of tower wagon, having a Guy Wolf chassis as its basis, formed a recent delivery to Liverpool Corporation Passenger Transport Department. Designed and constructed at the corporation's Edge Lane works"

The Guy 'Vixen' tower wagon

[Image: vixen18towerwaggon.jpg]

Because Guy Motors was a major manufacturer of trolley buses, it must have been almost inevitable for the company to produce a vehicle to assist in the maintenance of overhead wires, and street lights. The 3-stage hydraulically operated tower wagon was designed to give an extended working platform height of 25 feet, and a minimum closed height of approximately 13 feet.

1972 Austin 2200 Hearse MkIII [ADO17]
The Gentle Touch (1980-1984)
Agreed, I'm becoming more convinced (about 75%) that its an Austin 2200 ADO17, with the smaller wheels, raised roofline, possibly lengthened wheelbase and a customised front end. 2016-06-11 11:50
1972 Austin 2200 Hearse MkIII [ADO17]
The Gentle Touch (1980-1984)
The ADO17 is still the best contender, only the driver's door is probably recognisable however the rest is heavily modified I think.

There is also the possiblity the wheelbase has been extended by up to 15cm/6in; the door to wheelbase proportions look diferent to the base car.

[Image: combined2.jpg]

edit: My best possible match an Austin 3 litre ADO61 for the front end and quarter-lite in the driver's door - with an extended wheelbase and thinner, shorter bumpers.

Similar to this rust riddled example on standard wheelbase
Link to "platewave.com" http://platewave.com/content/plate/photos/resized/XPW336H_1391353341.jpg

edit 2: Craford Estate conversion has many similarities (notice small badge on rear wing) - either a hearse or perhaps an actual estate as the legs prevent seeing the rear door shut-line. Only the bumpers are different however.

Trolleybuses not introduced until 16th May, 1931 in London.

The Kingston Bridge location should make this a London United W class open top tram. The tram service was later converted to trolley bus working using the AEC 663T 'Diddler' trollybus /vehicle_923076-AEC-663T-A-1-Class-1932.html

Both tram and trolleybus on the trollybus introduction day May 1931 Link to "www.britishcommercialvehiclemuseum.com"

London Transport Route 601 was London’s first trolleybus route (in the form of London United Tramways’ route 1), and ran from Tolworth to Twickenham via Surbiton, Kingston, Hampton Wick, Teddington and Fulwell.

1971 Bedford CF
Bluey (1976-1977)
"New black grille with chrome bumpers" introduced as standard from October 1976 on UK built vans. However black (not bright finish as shown in the TV series) arms and blades introduced previously probably mid-1975. Australia could be different I guess.

The white/cream coloured grille was often re-painted by users however; also I cannot determine if bumpers here are chromed, they look painted to me.

1970-1975 I think as I cannot see any other features clearly to determine dates.

1976 Vauxhall VX [FE]
The Gentle Touch (1980-1984)
VX1800 or VX2300 differed in rear badges on the boot only I believe (even the tyre size was unchanged between engine sizes unlike the Magnum 2300 and 1800).

Interior had very minor equipment differences between the two models.

When the models were introduced, the small griffen badge on the VX1800 and VX2300 was on the left side on the grille, but a slightly larger centred badge on the VX2300 GLS. I am not aware of it changing later on.

I guess all-round visiblity is a priority when used on the airport tarmac.

Adding windows to small vans would be sensible because of few 'road markings' to follow and avoiding colisions with other vehicles or aircraft would be desirable.

Sandie wrote It's a shaded bit of glass above the handle. Not sure when they brought that in? Late 80s? No EU RR Classic should have a standard CHMSL as far as I know.

As for the wiper here's a late US one:
Link to "13252-presscdn-0-94.pagely.netdna-cdn.com" with the wiper on the same side as here.


I was able to check some facts this morning rather than rely on my (failing) memory :o

Rear wiper changes that involved new Land Rover part numbers were not visible externally after all.

Also, unusually for rear wipers, the LHD and RHD vehicles had different 'hands' of motor so parked on opposite sides. The only difference is a quality issue and some wiper arms tended to have more play, so would drop slightly away from the top of the rear glass. This one looks good but it only means its less likely to be an 'old' motor; however nothing visible here is conclusive regarding the rear wiper.

1995 Land-Rover Range Rover Classic Series I
Min misunnelige frisør (2004)
That looks like a very old Range Rover rear wiper to me, it would possibly be before 1988 on the Land-Rover Range Rover Series I. edit: Changes later found not to be visible externally see later comments.

All from memory but I only remember the newer ones parking on the right side of the screen (both for LHD and RHD). I only have experience of the later version. edit: Later found that LHD and RHD were different, see later comments.

It was changed in conjunction with Discovery, Defender and Rover R8 and before the Rover 'Tomcat' development so about 1988 is possible.

Of course some older vehicles may be fitted with newer wipers when they were replaced but unlikely that newer vehiles had old wipers!

1975 Daimler Sovereign Coupé with convertible conversion [Series II]

After comparing pictures, to find more about the glass areas convertible versus coupe...

[Image: xjcconvertible.jpg]

If the car above on the left is a genuine convertible, possibly by Avon-Stephens coachwork as suggested by the hood fit, they used a smaller rear quarter glass. The convertible in the TV series looks a cheaper conversion with the coupe's glass retained.

1975 Daimler Sovereign Coupé with convertible conversion [Series II]
Accusé (2014-2016)
Agreed, dsl it started life as an actual XJC coupe body but like you I think the soft top conversion is not the same quality as the one I listed in the auction example.

edit: There is something wrong I think with the rear quarter glass - the size looks too long to me, it was smaller I think in the coupe. The door glass looks right however.

Its not since the mid-1970s since I saw one but I handled the door and rear quarter glasses on a daily basis when working on them - they were heavier than normal being 5mm thick rather than the normal 4mm, but the rear quarter glass was fairly small.

I agree it appears to be the exact bus because of the missing paint over the left side-light; it is the same as here https://www.flickr.com/photos/galeforce19/5212599132

The 1956 date would suggest a 100 series 'Parrot-nosed' chassis from 1949-1956 but likely to have been modified to a large extent, so model name could be left out.
