1937-48 CV “Equi-Load”

Introduction

Production of the CV range started in late autumn 1937. Introduced as a direct replacement for the C-type, the range covered vehicles providing between 30 cwt to 5 ton payload and with numerous body types. As with the preceding C-type range it replaced, the same designation arrangement of wheelbase and capacity, four or six cylinder petrol engine and normal or forward control driving position was used.

The term “equi-load” was applied to both the CV and LC ranges and reflected a design which ensured equal distribution of load and braking stresses between front and rear axles. Production was halted during WW2. Post war, only the 4 cylinder engine was offered.
