Vauxhall 23/60 camper/motorhome.

A very unusual 1950's Vauxhall-based camper (built by Martin Walter and based on an E-Series Vauxhall Velox), and another built around the running gear of a Ford Model AA, were also included in a set of scans emailed over by Daniel Hudd. On this page from the same set of photos is a fascinating, aerodynamically-challenged, camper/motorhome based on the chassis and front panels of a vintage-era Vauxhall, most likely a 23/60 according to MikeC on the OCC Forum.
Nothing is currently known about this amazing camper, and unfortunately its registration number isn't fully visible. I'm sure it was a much-loved vehicle, and now as then it'd be great for weekends away, and forays to more distant lands. The curtains in the cab are drawn, presumably to either keep interior temperatures down on a hot day, or offer a spot of privacy for anyone who might be "indoors".

Vauxhall 23/60
Martin Walter Ltd, a coachbuilding company well-known for their camper conversions, was at one time a Vauxhall/Bedford dealer. I wonder whether they were responsible for this eye-catching machine? All extra information welcomed, the photo dates to 1933. Photographs of a standard 23/60 tourer, shown towing a wooden boat, may be found here.
