Yes Richard when it first appeared on the screen I instantly thought of the early type Ford Cargo; there is a visible similarity but I think that's where the likeness ends.

Wow I've gotta agree with Jeremy I to thought I know what that is but was wrong
Widget in todays modern world with corporate takeovers we dont know who owns who any more I think I have seen Peterbilt trucks with Cargo type of cab some where but could be wrong
thanks for sharing

Paul

despite what a lot of people say in Australia the Cargo was a great truck for its time perhaps a little to good

Bit of history here: http://www.ashokleyland.com/history

Started in 1948 with an Austin link. And continued into the Leyland era

It is basically an old Cargo cab via a link with Iveco at one point.

They look a bit like the old Aveling rollers built at Gainsborough? :think: I suspect that they have been built abroad to that old Brit design under license somewhere though. :think:
