Details: London Transport used about 70 examples of the van version of the Ford Anglia car, although the Anglia name was not generally applied to these. Most of the vans were withdrawn by the early 1970s and photographs of the type are quite rare. This well-known example shows a curiosity, 1439F being one of three vans loaned to the recently-formed London Country Bus Services in spring 1971. Two of the vans were returned after a couple of months but 1439F appears to have stayed for just over a year. Officially allocated to Reigate Garage, the van was photographed at Stevenage Garage on 20th February 1971, just three days after the loan began. It had already gained a 'London Country, Training Dept.' label on the doors and L plates. Having been assigned to the Mains Engineer before the loan, it was destined not to see any more use after its return, and was sold in September 1972.
