Austin FE. Plate is Oxford County Borough Council March to May 1957.

Odd to see an Austin badged truck carrying MG cars.

Suppose BRS could have sent a Commer QX or a Thames Trader transporter !

I was thinking that a Morris FE would have been more suitable. There wasn't an MG version!

BMC/Austin-Morris used the same 5-ton '503' as here, and 7-ton '701' designations for the tractor units, although the tractor-trailer unit would be considerably higher (but not specified) a result of the rather loose ratings used at the time.

edit: 5-ton '503' designation
