Details: By the time Ford replaced the D-series with the Cargo, London Transport had moved to a policy of multi-sourcing for its service vehicle fleet. As a result, in the 8 years from 1982 to 1990, just 30 Ford Cargos were bought, compared to over 100 Ford D-series lorries in the years 1970 to 1978. 2408F (A408SJD) was part of the second large batch, being delivered in October 1983 and lasting around 7 years. It was photographed at Uxbridge bus garage on 2nd March 1989 loaded with engineering crates, and a teddy bear! A red-backed London Buses sticker has been applied to the cab door.
