  6. It's a "Harvey Frost" HF commercial vehicle recovery ambulance, many years ago I had a similar one on dual pneumatic tyres. The Military might have used some. they work on the same principle as todays underlift recovery truck, supporting and towing the vehicle by its axle and the extending tubular drawbar facilitated to rear lift tow something like a bus with a long body overhang which could not be safely suspend towed by the crane without risk of body damage Found this pic of restored Harvey Frost ambulance
  7. Original log book for Ford Jeep MPJ 33

  13. '36 Fordson pick up

    It is a cut down Fordson Y type van body, it was not a factory option but various coachbuilders converted vans into a pick up body, ..I don't recall ever seeing any pics or reference to one in Military use, but may well have been commandered during the War by the Home Guard, the only listed Military small Fords of the same period were the larger 10cwt E83W semi forward control 10hp van and utility, Its so good to see such a nice original condition truck pic of similar Fordson Y model Van converted into a pick up
