Hi Eugene. What was this type of van used for please ?

Added by Paul Warnock on 03 May 2012.
From memory we had one of these in Auckland back in the sixties. The boys use to flog the living daylights out of it to try and kill it but they never succeeded! It's probably still going??!!

I think that this was close to coming off the run, if it was even on the run when I took the photo - it had probably been used as a utility vehicle or service van.
