VVP or YVP, Birmingham plate, maybe some sort of factory kite flyer?

Strange , looks very like the fire engines which were converted to FC from normal Series Land Rovers by the fire engine builders.
Matchbox sold the most :)

Maybe it’s a fire engine converted into an estate car. My L-R reference book shows nothing like it, the 101 inch has a different front end treatment.

A matchbox fire engine seems somehow appropriate.

Interesting---Carmichael did the conversions to forward control mainly for their fire engine bodies BUT they also supplied a few for civilian use as 14 seat ! Station Wagons and this is one of them , very rare indeed. Designation was Carmichael FT/6
See article and photos here at bottom of page .

Dr Frankenstein would have been proud of that creation. Linked picture looks as if same plate - if YVP 363, = Birmingham (Goods), July-Aug 1959.

Shame we can't see more of this mongrel. It's the 'front' doors in the middle that let it down !
