1935 Leyland Cub FK
Every Five Minutes (1951)
Bonnet arrangement (including handle), scuttle panel, front wing and side-light plus the overall engine size with a relatively small escape ladder suggest a 1935 Leyland Cub FK I believe.

1934 Morris Light Van 8-10 cwt

A continuation of the earlier Morris Light Van then and introduced in September 1932 2016-03-17 11:06
1934 Morris Light Van 8-10 cwt
The City (1939)
My attempts at recognising any Morris 8-10cwt van is taking a hit currently, johnfromstaffs!

It appears to have been an interim model between the snub-nosed Cowley based van and the semi-forward control Morris 8-10cwt series 2 van introduced in 1935.

[Image: morris8-10cwt1934.jpg]
http://archive.commercialmotor.com/article/2nd-march-1934/36/a-large-capacity-van

1934 Morris 8-10cwt van; 4-cyl 1,802cc 13.9hp.

The appearance seems similar to the Morris 1934-35 10-4 saloon (1,292cc 9.9hp) unless you know a better match for the engine itself?

1931 Leyland KG1 2-Ton normal control (probably long wheelbase).

1936 Leyland Cub KP3A Horse Box
Just My Luck (1957)
If it is a Cub, and front wheels look right, then a 1936 Leyland Cub KP3A passenger (bus) chassis, long wheelbase normal control. 2016-03-15 13:04
1935 Leyland Beaver 6-Ton Forward Control
All Creatures Great and Small (1975)
I believe this has the longer 14ft wheelbase rather than the Cub's 11ft wheelbase. Therefore it would be a Beaver 6-Ton.

The pre-war (1938) Lynx appears to have been a lightweight Cub based chassis of 5-Ton, 12ft and 14ft wheelbases, with semi-forward control only as produced by Leyland.

"This apparatus has been constructed primarily for the study of surface conditions, such as surface dressing, skidding and impact. It consists of a standard A.E.C. short-wheelbase chassis with the engine replaced by an electric motor. The chassis is loaded to a gross weight of 12 tons and rotates on a circular track which is 10 ft. wide and has a mean diameter of 110 ft."

Dennis 5-tonner - but don't yet know if I can recall a pre-war model name (most seem to have).

It predated the 'Pax' introduced in 1945.

The 'Mr Therm' logo was still seen in British Gas days 1n the 1950s and 1960s...

1930 Austin 12/4 Taxi 'High Lot'
BBC The Voice of Britain (1935)
I would say its an Austin 12/4 1930-1933 High Lot, by the height of the windscreen (also the numberplate was generally placed on the roof on the 'High Lot' plus the early (1933-35?) Low Loaders.

In later examples the front numberplate got moved lower to just under the headlights over the centre of the radiator, fitting on the bumper seems to be rare in the case of the Austin.

I don't think so. The hinges and handle are not standard Bedford parts I believe and the double doors rather narrow. A single hinged door 908mm (36in) wide was used as the side loading door.

The early Morris-Commercial vans and trucks that were less than 1-ton were the 10-12 cwt and the 12-15cwt, both using a smaller chassis compared with the 1-ton [T-Type].

They were identical other than the engines used; the 10-12 cwt [L-type] used the 11.9hp Morris Cowley engine and the 12-15cwt [LT-Type] the 13.9hp used in the Morris Oxford and the 1-ton [T-Type].
