What was date for bigger rear windows - 1957?? (Nice comparison picture!!) If plate is LMH = March - Oct 57 (LNH and LWH not issued in 123 ABC format).

Picture of May 1959 300E van with small rear windows. My recollection is that it was possible to specify the size you wanted, but I can't prove it. REA 935, our 1957 7cwt deluxe van, used for business, had small windows.

Have dated as 57 for the plate. Have also cleaned up all 300E vans as Thames for consistency, rather than the split that existed between Thames (lots) and Ford Thames (a smaller colony). Open to comment, but if people want Ford Thames, it can now be corrected as a block. Have also cleaned up 307E orphans so now Thames 5cwt/7cwt up to 1965, then Ford Anglia Van 65-68 - again open to comment and block remedy if needed.

My longstanding (55 years!) friend confirms that his 1960 5-cwt van, 8734 RE, in which he commuted to Aberystwyth in his student days, had small windows.

Not so much small as minute: compare the van in front. I suspect the main 300E is or was an airline vehicle, which would account for the extra glass: compare the later Bedford HA at /vehicle_608859-Bedford-HA-1965.html .
