Must be a very rare survivor with a Perkins 4.108 - diesels were pretty rare in early production and this must in the first year or so.

According to the owners club it is one of four short wheelbase, single wheel dropsides known to exist , thats why it is worth restoring. It also has the extremely rare 'smoke-away' headlining. A retired design team gentleman said that the first cream headliners were very easily tarnished and this led to dealer complaints. So a darker (tan)material was fitted in the early dropsides as a trial but it was dropped. It was code named 'smoke away'!
