1940-49 Series Y 10 cwt

Introduction

In design prior to the outbreak of World War II, the Series Y 10 cwt van was the replacement for the Series 2 version. Production commenced in 1940, with van and truck variants. Post-war production was limited to the van variant. A bespoke Ambulance version of the Series Y was also produced during the war. This was a physically larger vehicle which used a 14hp engine and featured larger wheels and tyres. It had a lengthened chassis and a 10 inch longer wheel base than the “standard” 12hp versions.
