A window into random stuff that interests me; but mostly motorcycles.
Sorry. Accidentally deleted Bodger's new post as well as his deleted post. Duh!
Third times the charm....that Barkus looks very similar to a Comer van of the 70s or a Ford, Chevy or Dodge commercial van from the 60s.Something about the look and simplicity of these old delivery vans that I like, making me want one for toodling around in or to haul the old nails in.Come to think of it, there's an old Chevy van still in use at a small business near where the lass lives. Will have to try and get a couple of photies of it.
In the UK we had the Commer FC van, which was a very similar shape and size. I guess it's no surprise that a popular design gets copied.
The Commer van, same one as I remember. We had one of those, a Ford Transit (not those wee ones nowadays), and a Leyland I think at the paint warehouse I worked at in Banbury.Was never a car type person, but I would like to have one of those old delivery vans without the side windows to restore and drive around in.
