1949 Fordson Thames ET6 and not 500E which was the Thames Trader from 1957.

"March 1957 Launch of Thames Trader truck range. The new Type 500E Thames Trader range of trucks was the most versatile Ford in Britain had ever produced. It had what was known as a forward-control chassis, with a distinctively styled cab.". Official Ford press release.

The picture shown at http://www.fire-engine-photos.com/picture/number4210.asp is therefore not identified correctly as '500E'. Also the 'Firefly body shown is not the same as the main movie vehicle, as the cab is different and the top of the fire appliance is straight rather than curved.

I think this is an Austin Loadstar, see the wing pressings .

Well spotted, JCB. You're right the front wing is quite distinctively from an Austin.

1951 Austin K4 Loadstar as here, although the body is different.
