Fordson Trader 4x4 Truck The Thames FV13300 series was designed by the Ford motor Company to meet a General Staff requirement for a 4-wheel drive 3-ton truck. The vehicle featured a large number of standard Ford components. The chassis types included the E2, E3 & E4 These vehicles were nicknamed the 'Commer cab' as they had the same BLSP cab as the contemporary Commer FC trucks. ("Jedsite") Then - Thames Trader With AWD Chassis. 4x4 Thames Trader. Is it safe to assume this was County conversion? As Ford was not a big player in 4x4, compared to Bedford who had the military business." Well interesting questions TS. It could well have been, as you suggest, a County conversion. But equally active in the all-wheel drive conversion market was Newton Abbott Motor (NAM), United Services Garage (USG) the big Bedford dealer in Portsmouth and Reynolds Boughton to name but a few...
A handful of companies offered four-wheel-drive conversions, such as County Tractors of Knighton in Powys, who converted vans on behalf of Ford as a Special Vehicle Operations factory option. The first Transit County models were based on the Mk2 Transit model, both long and short wheelbase. The conversion used a Dana 44F front axle and a NP208 transfer box, both lifted from the Ford Bronco, coupled to the regular Transit engine, gearbox and rear axle using three custom propshafts. The Transit rear axle was retained, mounted to a rear subframe or 'lift cradle' to give the extra ride height. Other modifications were 16-inch wheel rims, locking front hubs, a heavy-duty steering box and 305 mm diameter front brake discs.
With the introduction of the Mk3 Transit in 1986 came the next generation of the County 4x4. This would prove to be a very popular and successful version of the County Transit 4x4, and the last to use the Dana beam axle layout. Later County 4x4 models switched to using an independent front suspension setup which was inherently more complex in design than the earlier beam axle models. Later panel vans also lost the twin-wheel rear axle that had been fitted on earlier LWB versions. Mainly used by utility companies such as National Grid, the Ministry Of Defence, and by mountain rescue teams, the Transit County 4x4 proved to be a capable vehicle both on and off road, with the ability to carry both crew and equipment just about anywhere. Design and supply of drivetrain components for County 4x4 models passed to Countytrac, a division of M.J. Allen Ltd, who are still involved in the development of the latest Mk7 AWD Transit and Connect models.
The Ford Transit is a range of light commercial vehicle produced by Ford since 1965. Sold primarily as a cargo van, the Transit is also built as a passenger van (marketed as the Tourneo since 1995), minibus, cutaway van chassis, and as a pickup truck. Over eight million Transit have been sold, making it the third best-selling van of all time and have been produced across five basic platform generations (debuting in 1965, 1978, 1986, 2000, and 2013 respectively).
The Dodge 50 Series, later known as the Renault 50 Series were light commercial vehicles produced in the UK by Dodge and later Renault Vehicules Industriels between 1979 and 1993. Four-wheel-drive version, the RB44, built by Reybolds Boughton (now known as Boughton Engineering).
The Land Rover Llama is a vehicle that was designed and developed by the British company Land Rover in the mid-1980s. 11 prototypes and a single production vehicle were built during 1986/7 with the hope of winning a contract from the Ministry of Defence (MoD) to replace its existing fleet of Land Rover 101 gun tractors. Heavily based on the contemporary Land Rover One Ten, the Llama was intended to be sold on both the military and civilian markets. However, the MoD did not choose Land Rover's design and without the security of these sales Land Rover was unwilling to risk putting the Llama on the market.
Unimog is a range of multi-purpose auto four-wheel drive medium trucks produced by Mercedes-Benz, a division of Daimler AG. In the United States and Canada, the Unimog was sold as the Freightliner Unimog. The name Unimog is pronounced in German and is an acronym for the German "UNIversal-MOtor-Gerat", Gerat being the German word for device (also in the sense of machine, instrument, gear, apparatus) Daimler Benz took over manufacture of the Unimog in 1951 and they are currently built in the Mercedes truck plant in Worth am Rhein in Germany.
The Pinzgauer is a family of high-mobility all-terrain 4WD (4x4) and 6WD (6?6) military utility vehicles. They were most recently manufactured at Guildford in Surrey, England by BAE Systems Land & Armaments. The vehicle was originally developed in the late 1960s and manufactured by Steyr-Daimler-Puch of Graz, Austria, and was named after the Pinzgauer, an Austrian breed of horse. It was popular amongst military buyers, and continued in production throughout the rest of the century. In 2000 the rights were sold to Automotive Technik Ltd (ATL) in the UK. ATL was subsequently acquired by Stewart & Stevenson Services, Inc. in 2005; in May 2006, Stewart & Stevenson became a subsidiary of the aerospace and defence group Armor Holdings, Inc.. One year later, Armor Holdings was acquired by BAE Systems plc, who discontinued UK production of the Pinzgauer, which was proving to be vulnerable to mines and improvised explosive devices in Afghanistan. Development work (done in the UK) on a planned Pinzgauer II was evaluated by a BAE subsidiary in Benoni, Gauteng, South Africa but no vehicle was ever made.
