If so, I believe it'd be a Reiver.

Correction - according to recent toy car magazine feature, long door means Albion (all LAD versions) or Leyland (some of their LAD models), but can't be Dodge (short door only).

Thanks again, I hadn't noticed that before! With regard to the Leyland models, it would appear that only the lighter duty Comets and Super Comets had the short doors and more squared-off wheel arches, though don't quote me on that!

Both Leyland and Albion used the Reiver name for lorries of this configuration. JCB is needed! :hello:

The Albion Reiver was renamed Leyland Reiver in September 1972 I believe with the introduction of the G-series cab. Link to "archive.commercialmotor.com"

The 'short-door' Leyland Comet LAD cab design was probably due to all the previous design of the forward control Comet's chassis and the engine location well over the front axle; cab over engine not before engine.

Slim front bumper so Albion Reiver I believe (not heavier Leyland bumper).
