If KI 5203 = Waterford, 1953. Info on Irish builds of UK commercials is a complete black hole apart from they built Bedfords, but I'm fairly sure they did it, even if no idea what/when.

It is NI5203
Painted grille gives a different look to this Loadstar.

...also possibly bright windscreen surround is rare (about three detected to date) normally rounded rubber section (unless these also were painted white!).

About when was NI5203 registered?

NI 6289 was Wicklow, 1951.

Groups of 3 scuttle louvres added behind the bonnet after June 1951, so missing here.

1951 Wicklow issues were NI 6081 to 6632 which supports early 51 idea. Do we feel brave enough to go for Irish build from the grille and screen trim anomalies??

edit:
On the basis of this truck only, I would not associate any of the anomalies with Irish manufacture.

With new info here about Austin commercial assembly from late 40s through to end 60s (although models not specified), can we now take this as probable local build?
