Details: Ford's D-series replaced the Thames Trader as the standard lorry for London Transport use from 1966 until the late-1970s. LT's D-series lorries came in all shapes and sizes, some of the largest being D1000 10-ton open lorries. These came with either dropside doors or fixed sides, the latter being shown in this view of 1783F at Chiswick Works on 10th July 1974. The largest D-series lorries often had a chrome strip across the front panel (between the side indicator lights), while the bodywork was usually mounted higher up (relative to the cab) than on smaller variants. 1783F had been bought in August 1972 and was destined to last a little over 8 years.
