I'd say that 'Ferodo' truck was quite unusual

And the Oldsmobile is one of few American cars in this photo.

The Ferodo truck is a Bedford. Circa '54-ish Chev next to the Olds?

I think there's a Mk.VII Jaguar next to the Bedford. The Rootes truck will almost certainly be a Commer.

Sorry, I should have said: the Bedford's an RL.

Ferodo truck: Not a forward control Bedford RL but a normal control Bedford A-type with a windscreen moved forward slightly.

edit: the truck was originally supplied as a Chassis/Cab to the coachbuilder and the cab used on the body is similar to the RAF crew bus here. /vehicle_19074-Bedford-A-Type.html

These trucks (rather than standard trucks) were used by suppliers as travelling workshops so the expense of using coachbuilt bodywork was justified for advertising as well.
