Typical wartime-converted large saloon or van.

Standardised ambulance rear body has been added plus a newer front fairing and sign.

Strange it should last so long after the war, since many converted saloons were already being scrapped in 1943-1944 due to them being replaced as being unserviceable.

By 1943 up to 1,500 vehicles per week, exceeding 250,000 in total mainly saloon cars impressed in 1939, converted into ambulances, etc., for the use of the NFS. and local authorities, were being scrapped.

It looks like a big Flying Standard to me, Twenty?

^ If it's the same one they're switching plates. Perhaps they converted batches, so we have both a 1939 example and a 1940.

The LCC purchased Bedford light chassis and added a body costing £140 - more expensive than modifying existing large passenger cars but cheaper and more efficient to maintain as a large fleet.
