Here is a copy of the posting I did on the van in 2010.
A rather fetching 1955 Hi Top van. First seen 30 years ago in Hereford.
According to the DVLA web site this is a September 1955 vehicle, un-taxed but with a recent owner change and fitted with a 1489cc engine, colour Brown.
Looking just the same as it did 30 years ago it re-surfaced and was for sale with a classic car dealer and restorer.
As you can see it is ex-Ministry of Defence, Army Transport. Dating from 1955 it's actual use within the Army can only be guessed at, maybe a NAFFI wagon?
Needing a bit of work but on the whole all there. It was advertised for £950 and I assume it sold very quickly.
The new owner has left it with the vehicle restorers David Wall of Wroham Nr Norwich to be restored!!
Also out and about, spotted recently are the Pickford's van and the well known Royal Mail van.
I understand the Pickford's van is currently for sale at an asking price of £15K.
