1989 Isuzu TF
The Knock (1994-2000)

BEDFORD BRAVA sold in UK, Europe; 1988 to 1990
VAUXHALL BRAVA sold in UK; 1990 to 2002
OPEL CAMPO sold in Europe, Middle East, Africa; 1990 to 2002
ISUZU TF sold in UK, Europe, Middle East, Africa; 1988 to 2002

Source, http://vauxpedianet.uk2sitebuilder.com/vauxhall-tf1-tf0---brava-pick-up

"The new model, the TF Series,... In the UK and Europe the TF Series was launched in October 1988 and initially sold by General Motors as the Bedford Brava, however after the Bedford brand was dropped completely in 1990 it was re branded a Vauxhall Brava in Britain and Opel Campo in mainland Europe, Africa and the Middle East. All the models sold in the UK & Europe were wholly imported from Japan. In addition the Japanese maker also sold the same vehicle as the Isuzu TF."

Despite having three large Vauxhall-Bedford dealers locally we also had a very small Isuzu dealer, and I guess the additional pickup in the Isuzu range would be relatively important to the Isuzu dealer and would not detract from the larger volumes sold through the GM dealers.

Curved radiator and windscreen size is visible.

Vulcan 6PF
Oxford (1958)
Agreed its almost a generic British cab without a clear view of the front, but the proportions and size of the windscreen and headlamp height are significant I think.

However its appearance is very similar again to a Vulcan http://ccmv.aecsouthall.co.uk/p674500040/h2f0be483#h2f0be483

The truck is not a car transporter but a normal flat-bed, platform truck with an added fixed upperdeck for car bodies similar to this later example?

British Road Services look to have been contracted by the Rootes Group at the time of the movie to provide the transport but its not to say the truck itself was a Rootes product (including any late 1940s to 1953 Vulcan).

edit: A four wheeler and trailer from the Jaguar listing.

1948 Bedford PC Utilicon Van
Oxford (1958)
Without any ambulance sign on the front of the cab roof, probably a Bedford Utilicon PC van as exhibited at the October 1948 Commercial Motor Show but probably available previously.

1945 Atkinson 1266 A
Local Newspaper (1952)
The cab (windscreen shape and headlights) looks more like the early 1940s than the 1930s to me and it could be GLL registration so could be 1942 I think (by enlarging the picture).

If early 1940s it would have the AEC engine during wartime as specified by the Ministry of Production.

Six-wheeler by the thumbnail, possibly 10 or 12 tons; a ten tonner would be Atkinson 1066A or 1266A for the twelve tonner.

1937 Leyland Tigress FT
Local Newspaper (1952)
Leyland was my first thought but not a Leyland FK Cub as they did not normally have the wheel trim-ring rather the Leyland FT Tigress.

Longer wheelbase I believe (153" rather than 120") so Q3 3-ton, Q4 4-5 ton or Q6 6-ton; all visually the same I think.

Q4 would be a good assumption here I guess.

Reo M-35
The Long Haul (1957)
Opening sequesnce represents a US base in Starnberg, Germany; but its almost certainly the UK.

It also appears the truck is seen approaching the entrance to the base on the left side of the road, although it could be a 'one way' road.
edit: The side of the hood shows no USMC number in the movie.

Another alternative is this section of the film was shot in the US by Universal, including Victure Mature's appearance, before or after the main film was completed.

Cool It, Carol! (1970) I used an early version of WinDVD for many years on WindowsXP or earlier but I had problems with upgrading to later versions. So now I use [=url]http://vlc-media-player.en.softonic.com/[/url] and IrfanView. http://www.irfanview.com/

As DVD player and screen capture tools they do everything I need and a free download. Cropping, and other adjustments including playback speed plus batch processing make it ideal for getting images I find.

The Long Haul (1957) [Image: l_hcap-5089.jpg]
00:07:07 Simple Truck [*]

Removed from separate listings as it is only seen briefly at night so not easy to identify; a six-wheeled conversion, normal control truck with a Briggs Motor Bodies cab.

Either Leyland Comet or Dodge 100 series, or less likely the Thames ET6. The truck has sidelights mounted on top of the wings like all Dodge 100 series (and very few Leyland Comets). Changing the contrast its just possible to determine I think the Dodge grille rather than the Leyland.
