Details: London Transport used a total of 45 Vauxhall Chevette cars in the early 1980s, including some saloons configured for driver training duties and estates for use as radio control cars. Unfortunately, photos of the type are quite rare. Even rarer though are photos of the related Bedford Chevanne model, of which LT had just two. I was therefore pleased to receive this photo from Derek, showing Chevanne 2354B leaving the back entrance of Chiswick Works on 8th October 1981. As can be seen, the type was very similar to the Chevette estate, but with the rearmost two windows replaced by a plain panel. Somewhat curiously, this panel on 2354B appears to be white rather than red. Both Chevannes were sold in 1984, having been replaced by leased Ford Escort vans.
