Looks like a Watt's Bros body?

That drivers area and dashboard (minus rubbish) certainly brings back memories of the old Bedford SB's - not something you see much of these days.

I reckon that is a Bedford SB with a Watt body.

Photos show a wooden frame. In wonder when Watt moved to steel.

Hi SI,

Watt's first ever steel frame build was the rear engine Bedford, Redline No 16, delivered in late 1959, with its steel framed twin No 17 built and delivered in quick succession. I can vividly recall observing the progress on a number of occasions with Rex.

Sheriff employed a single young tradesman to construct those first steel frames, while the rest of the shop was still engaged on various stages of wooden framed builds.
