Details: 1718F was one of probably only 5 London Transport Ford Transit vans to feature this distinctive style of bodywork. Known as 'parcels' vans, only the bonnet from the standard van was retained. A new, more upright windscreen was fitted and the cab had through access into the cargo space. As such, it was more or less a cross between 'laundry' van 1542F and the FS-class of minibuses. Five parcels vans were delivered in 1971 and lasted until near the end of the decade. 1717F was allocated to the ticket machine works at Effra Road, the others all at Chiswick Works. This photo of 1718F is dated 1st July 1977 and was marked as being taken in Richmond, though I believe it was actually at Hounslow.
