mid 1970s note dayglo only on the front which was a Lancs habit at that time. Cost saving. Dayglo by Dane & Co paints of Stratford was expensive.

These CFE D series were very similar to the Carmichael ones, with not much effort to integrate the slab sided rear body and crew cab with the original Ford cab.

HCBA Fords at the time had a transitional B pillar and rear door, which looked a lot better, especially on units which were overall painted red!

But all of these were an improvement on HCBA's first efforts on the ten original D series appliances supplied to Gloucestershire in 1967. These - several of which are on this site - had the original cab and a box body behind, which included the crew seating. Not very pretty, but still effective!
