description

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.
