The front wing is very similar in shape to J1-J5 series. (It would be J2 at least because of twin rear wheels).

There is little I can find to confirm it actually is a Bedford J2. Also the elongated shape from the front side-lamp should run into the flared shape on the wheel arch. Here it looks to be separate. The front turn indicator is a "lolly-pop" style on the J series and is mounted on the top of the wing. This is not visible in the picture from the movie.

I think we could be looking for another truck other than Bedford.

For me, it's just a question of light /shawdows on this picture, amplified matter by dark green colour... what else could it be than a Bedford J2? ... nice find by the way

...that is really the question.

Bedford J2 was my first thought but it didn't look quite right and the turn-indicator light is not there. So what else is possible in France? I don't know......is there anything?
