Details: Ford D-series lorry 1749F was found at the small Works and Buildings yard near Chiswick Park Station on 17th June 1983. Delivered on 10th April 1972, but not licensed until 1st May, it was initially allocated to Parsons Green. It was part of a batch of seven dropside lorries (1748F to 1754F) all of which were fitted with crew-cabs and half-tilt covers (later removed). Interestingly 1749F (the last to arrive) was officially listed as a D0910 lorry, while the others were D550s. This is thought to be due to a change in Ford's model numbers rather than meaning that 1749F was different from the others. The whole batch lasted over 10 years, with 1749F achieving a very respectable 14 years' service.
