1959 Bedford C-Type with Primrose third axle conversion

Probably the Primrose third axle conversion from October 1958. An un-powered trailing third axle. 2015-07-09 14:47
1962 Morris 6cwt O-Type Van Wadham Bros. 'Carversion'
A Moment's Reflection (1968)
... so that's where I saw it! I thought it looked familiar :lol:

There is a Morris Motors advert for it somewhere on the internet I remember. I cannot find it now. It possibly disapeared in the last four years or the text only appears in picture form.

1959 Bedford C-Type with Primrose third axle conversion
A Moment's Reflection (1968)
Yes 'C' (forward control 1957-1960) and 'D' (normal control 1957-1958) types were only in existence briefly.

The introduction Bedford of C and D types in February 1957 (edit; link added).

Basically I think, GM sourced diesel engines plus I assume some other chassis refinements and the addition of 4, 5 and 6-tonners (the S-type "Big Bedford" was a 7-tonner only). This was just prior to TK and TJ introductions. So Vauxhall/Bedford Engineering developed the chassis then later introduced new cabs. The resources for truck development was spread over the years. The cabs for the TJ took less time therefore it replaced the D type (TD) before the TK introduction.

1935 Austin 12/4 Taxi Low Loader - Jones Body
Highway Code - Woodenhead (1949)
Austin 12/4 taxi registered by Mann & Overton Ltd. London distributors of Austin taxis in batches.

CLB 551 to CLB 600 November - December 1935

Looks like a Jones Body.

Where There's a Will (1936)
Or Bedford is a contender also...

stronghold wrote ... (due to the angle of the movie pictures, we can't see if it has a bonnet?)

Agreed, its impossible to say if it has a bonnet from the little seen and the body width.

Pickfords - London branch here - small in size 2-3 tonner probably.

The CM Archive mentions the delivery to Pickfords, Ltd. of the 1,500th Bedford vehicle purchased by that company up to June 1939.

Morris 6cwt O-Type Van from 1962 onwards by the larger windows in the rear doors.

The extra window is quite distinctive in shape and follow the panel form on the van. Cannot remember a common conversion like this but I must have seen at least one at some time?

A Moment's Reflection (1968)
No unlikely I think unless the actual vehicle is recognised I guess.

It looks very like this one

but different chassis however (different front overhang).

The company is still in existence, and have a Guy as a preserved vehicle, so a later Guy is possible..

also possibly Bedford SB chassis and overhangs look about right.

1984 Bedford CF Mk2
Brum (1991-2002)
After October 1980, so 1981-84, with steel door mirrors, a CF Mk.II most likely. Nothing I can see, due to blurring, to date it better.

Before CF2 introduced in October 1984 (thicker plastic arms used).

Bedford M-Type 'ESU367' also appears in 'Poirot', 'Foyle's War', 'Band of Brothers' & 'Alleyn Mysteries' episodes - 90% certain...

1950 Austin K4 Loadstar 4-5 Ton Tipper MkII
The Incredible Seven (1961)
It is a K4 Loadstar 4-5 Ton Tipper - the higher than normal sides show its not a normal dropside truck.

1950 Austin K4 Loadstar 4-5 Ton Tipper MkII
The Incredible Seven (1961)
K2 Loadstars also had twin rears and this I think, is rather a dropside truck than a tipper?

Its not possible to count the number of studs on the front wheels but it looks like eight rather than six, so K4 is likely.

1966 Dodge 500 Series
Groupie Girl (1970)
Introduced September 1965.

"A new design, high-quality tilt cab and the use of vee engines as standard are the main features of the 500 Series goods vehicles range introduced by Dodge Brothers (Britain) Ltd." from Commercial Motor archive.

zodiac wrote No, it says 'DODGE'.
I believe it's a 500 series http://www.allpar.com/trucks/dodge-500-fargo-desoto.html , introduced at 1964 Earls Court with production start in December, probably made until Peugeot-Citroen took over Rootes in 1978.

There were no new Dodge models shown at the 1964 Earls Court Commercial Motor Show; the 500 Series was at the 1965 Scottish Motor Exhibition.

The Commercial Motor Show was a biennial event. On alternate years the Scottish Motor Exhibition, was held at Kelvin Hall, Glasgow.

The 500 series I believe was replaced by the Dodge 100 series Commando range and, for heavier trucks, the 300 series (Barrieros sourced) trucks in 1978.

The Firefighters (1975)
From the picture in the romar.org.uk link, a Dodge 500 Series with possibly 15ft 6in wheelbase, K900 chassis.

The K1000 looks too long with either a 17ft 2in or 19ft 1in wheelbase.

1939-1948 Semi-forward control Dodge 3-4 ton in short, medium and long wheelbases and 5-ton in short and long wheelbases (or light truck, 1½-2 ton standard wheelbase).

Most probably Dodge 81 3-4 Ton, 10ft 4in (medium) wheelbase.

1988 Renault 50 Series [S46-90]
London's Burning (1988-2002)
JCB wrote Think they carried Dodge and Renault badges for a while

After 1987 with the new Renault grille and rectangular headlights it was sold as and marketed as "Renault", however small Dodge badges were also available as an option.

Either the dealer or customer could specify the extra Dodge badge if they wanted to keep the Dodge connection.
2015-07-03 19:58
1986 Dodge 50 Series [S56]
The Chief (1990-1995)
Not 3680cc but 3865cc so probably another DVLA error.

Engine options at release in June 1979 for Dodge 50 Series (UK origin) included a 3865cc Chrysler (US) power unit (in addition to a 1981cc petrol engine (UK) and two Perkins diesels 4 and 6 cylinders).

The doors, upper front wings and cab rear were carry-over from Chrysler-Dodge tooling, initially purchased from the USA, then tooling was transferred to the UK. The remaining panels were all either UK sourced or US parts that were modified.

For the registration year 1985/6 all Chrysler UK vans and trucks were branded Dodge but under Renault ownership.

Some Dodge 50 Series S-56 vans were purchased by UK Police forces, bodied by Alloy Transport Bodies of Manchester, in 1986 so this could be one of them.

1987 Dodge 100 Series Commando
Dalziel and Pascoe (1996-2007)
Not the full width grille used from March 1987 onwards; so not branded as Renault.

Sold as 'Dodge 100 Series Commando' under Renault ownership so would have the small Renault logo. (In a similar way the early Dodge Commando had the Chrysler 'Pentastar').

The CM archive suggests the Ministry of Supply ordered these during 1945, either shortly before or after the end of the war, and that they were in service by both the RAF and BOAC (and possibly BEA) sometime during 1946.

1978 Dodge 100 Series Commando
The Jigsaw Man (1983)
From the size of the wheels this looks like a 1974 onwards 8.5-Ton (8.6 tonne) Commer Commando G8675 or the renamed Dodge 100 Series Commando G08, 1978 to 1981 with the early grille. The Commer versions may have also been sold alongside the Dodge version for a short time before becoming only Dodge.

Enlarging the picture there is probably five letters, making it Dodge.
