Hub caps indicate 13in diameter wheels therefore after September 1960, Buckinghamshire registered Bedford CAZ MkII similar or same body as yet not found, also here...

Strange, CA MkII released January 1959 as short wheelbase only (as looks to be in the movie) but still with old Vauxhall Wyvern derived wheels and therefore hubcaps.

"Standard equipment on these vehicles now are 13-in.-diameter wheels, instead of the 15-in.-diameter wheels previously employed". (Sept 1960)

I suppose its possible the 13" wheels may have been an option earlier for special builds but unshure if the wheelhubs were the same?

Edit: looking again at the chromed hubcaps they appear to be from the Vauxhall Victor [F]. I have never seen those on CA vans and not the totally different style hubcaps in the later change. Looks to be either a factory option or specific earlier development exercise in conjunction with this application.

Rear view identical to Levers Lancastrian Minor Ambulance introduced Sept 1956. Sliding doors vs slam doors and windscreen seem to differentiated from our other Levers body?
