Details: After years of almost complete reliance on Ford products, multi-sourcing became the order of the day in the early 1980s. The reasons for this are not known, and Ford trucks continued to be used alongside numbers of Bedfords and Dodges. This picture taken at Acton Works on 30th May 1990 provides an interesting comparison between two of the designs. In the foreground is Dodge Commando G13 dropside lorry 2383D (NYR383Y) new in March 1983 and withdrawn exactly 10 years later. Behind is the first Ford Cargo, 2373D (MYL373X), a 1313 articulated unit with crane. New in May 1982, this was withdrawn in the same month as 2383D (March 1993). Also apparent is the standard livery and lettering of the time.
