I cannot remember the last time I saw one of these.

The British Commercial Vehicle Museum at Leyland have an Ice Cream van based on one. I gave them the works parts and workshop manuals for one last summer.

I have seen a couple at commercial events but they are very rare and very useful!

We had one as a service van in 1958 - 60, and then I had a pick-up as my service truck in 1968 - 72. I'm surprised to see a survivor, as my PU rusted away as I watched!
