Details: The Ford Thames Trader was the standard lorry for London Transport from 1959 until it was replaced by the new Ford D-series in 1966. 136 examples were bought during that time, in a wide variety of configurations. 1302F was a 5-ton box truck delivered in December 1963 but not licensed until the following March. Always allocated to Chiswick Works, it was photographed there on 12th August 1974. Note the non-standard white London Transport fleetname, and the allocation plate showing 'CDS Chiswick'. Also the painting of the front of the box body is somewhat odd, perhaps as a result of repairs. Box-bodied Traders were not particularly rare but this is the first to be shown on LTSV (other than the crew-cabbed breakdown tenders such as 1283F).
