WTH = short wheelbase
WTL = long wheelbase

johnfromstaffs wrote It's a prewar Bedford short wheelbase tipper, but the type designation is a mystery to me.


Cannot be certain but the thumbnail looks to be a long wheelbase truck to me.

Length is more likely than a short wheelbase, drop-sided truck rather than a tipper I think.

Freight Rover Sherpa 300
London's Burning (1988-2002)
1974 Commercial Motor
On 'Sherpa' van release in 1974

[Image: sherpaaustinmorris.jpg]

"Long Awaited Light Van from Leyland.

..the vehicles are now known by a type number rather than a name Leyland 185, 215, 220, 240 and 250. covering 13cwt to 22cwt."

http://archive.commercialmotor.com/page/13th-september-1974/89

The various models in the new Leyland light van range are to be known by a type number rather than a name. Rather surprising in view of the long and honourable Leyland tradition of denoting their models by name.

However, I hear that the new van was originally to be given the name of Sherpa because of its ability to "go up hill and down dale with the minimum of effort" but someone in the heady heights of the BL hierachy decreed against it. Hence the 185, 215 and 240 etc.

Link to "archive.commercialmotor.com"

By the time of the Road Test on the diesel version in September 1985 the 'Sherpa' name was introduced.

Freight Rover Sherpa 300
London's Burning (1988-2002)
Two of some of the first vehicles I was involved in way back in about 1970. The Sherpa was code-named something like Austin 110 (memory failure -edit: correct I believe at the time it was based on the wheelbase in inches a common idea at BL) and the Bedford CF. On the sliding door versions both used the same door latches so were known as CF/110? latches and strikers from memory.

Freight Rover Sherpa 300
London's Burning (1988-2002)
Yes JCB, its not a 200 since there is no small grille at the bottom of the windscreen, 400 series for Leyland DAF I guess.

edit: Cannot understand the grille for Freight Rover but accept that registration was changed.

I believe Freight Rover had vertical grille bars not horizontal, plus a badge in the centre not off-set to one side.

Leyland DAF grille and badge I believe.

1952 ERF V-Type
Ferry Load (1960)
Not the normal V type cab. It has a two-piece wrap-around windscreen similar to the later KV range. However the non-standard cab is probably on a V type chassis sometime between 1952-54. 2014-07-20 21:26

Naming apparently the ERF Series was something like...
ERF original OE range, standing for 'Oil Engine'.
Then the 1936 CI (Compression Ignition), followed by the DI series in the early 1940s.
2014-07-20 18:37
1946 ERF DI6
The Island (1952)
Between 1945-1951 many manufacturers were concentrating on export markets I thought. Certainly there would be fewer new trucks than normal.

I was thinking that the Thornycroft Amazon tipper truck used by McAlpine could be ex-WD and (less likely) this truck also. The 'McAlpine' signs look 'added-on' or temporary.

1949 Dodge 65 2-3 Ton 'Parrot Nose'
En by i vekst (1958)

1946 ERF DI6
The Island (1952)
Possibly ERF CI6?

Information extracted from Commercial Motor Archive..
The cab dates from 1936 CI4, CI5 and CI6, as 3-ton 4-ton and 7½-Ton rigids 4,6 or 8 wheel (simple) trucks with separate trailers. Nothing to suggest an ERF tractor unit before 1939 although they did see some wartime use.

Wheelbase 11ft or 12ft 6in.

A 7½-Ton simple truck possibly becomes a 16 to 18 ton tractor unit?

1939 Bedford O-type Tipper
The Island (1952)
Bedford OSAT 3-ton tipper or, more likely, an OSBT 5-ton tipper, June 1939 to 1953.

Normally and continuing current practice, all are listed as 'Bedford O-type Tipper' on IMCDb.

All factory built tippers were short wheelbase (111") and any long-wheelbase O-type tippers being non-standard builds on the 157" Bedford chassis

Tipper bodies were also built on the Dodge 105 5-Ton and 125 6-Ton long wheelbase chassis .

Should be either N1 25cwt normal control (1936-9) or N2 30-40cwt normal control (1936-9) I guess it looks the heavier van but needs confirmation.

1959 Thornycroft Swiftsure 6-Ton [HL/JR6]
Sparrows Can't Sing (1963)
The 4-tonner Swift GL/JR6 also had the same cab as the Swiftsure HL/JR6 6-ton if this 1959 preserved example (WOR 934) is to believed...

edit: confirmed by Thornycroft advert for both Swift and Swiftsure cab design.

Therefore Oldsmobile1897's orininal comment for Swift is also applicable but deciding between Swift 4-ton and Swiftsure 6-ton is a problem based on the movie picture of the vehicle.

[Image: swiftswiftsure2.jpg]

Also the same cab was used with twin headlamps on the larger Thornycroft Mastiff (with a front wheel step-ring).

I believe the earlier Swiftsure AL/JR6-Ton model was introduced in 1955 with the 'waterfall' style cab as on the smaller 'Nippy'.
