9781906133313: British Vans & Pick-Ups 1945-1965: Including Camper Vans

Directly after the Second World War, most light commercial vehicles were derived from passenger cars, usually small and with very limited carrying capacity. The most typical of these was the Morris Eight van, which would struggle to cope with the weight of more than five hundred potatoes or to reach 50 mph. By comparison, the Ford Transit of 1965 would carry three times that amount, drove like a car and could maintain speeds of 70 mph with ease. In British Vans & Pick ups 1945-1965 the manufacturers - large and small - are dealt with in A-Z order: Austin, Bedford, Bond, Commer, Douglas, Ford, Jowett, Morris, Morrison, Reliant, Standard, Triumph and Trojan. The author gives a brief history of each and then provides detailed coverage of the various models produced, using the original manufacturers' publicity material for the illustrations not only to identify the vehicles but also to give the flavor of the times when they were to be seen going about their business.

Book Description HERRIDGE SONS LTD, United Kingdom, 2013. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. In the twenty-year period following World War II, light commercial vehicles in Britain gradually changed from being working versions of passenger cars to vehicles which were specifically designed for the job. At the beginning was the Morris Eight van, which struggled to cope with a five hundredweight load, or to reach 50 mph. At the end came the Ford Transit which carried three times that load, drove like a car and cruised at 70mph. In this book the van manufacturers (large and small) are dealt with in A-Z order, from Austin, Bedford, Bond and Commer to Reliant, Standard, Triumph and Trojan. The author gives a brief history of each and then provides individual coverage of the models produced, using material from brochures and advertisements for the illustrations to give the flavour of the times when they were seen to be going about their business.
