Or, what did it used to say? And what was it painted on?
It has been awhile since we have done a CC clue, so a reminder here of the Big Rule: Do Not post a picture along with your guess. We have to allow everyone a chance to try a hand at identifying the vehicle.
As for me? Not a clue. 🙁
“Something Ltd” – looks like a Bedford CA van; my Dad owned several of these when I was growing up in Derbyshire, England in the 1960’s and 1970’s – van and minibus versions and eventually a fantastic handbuilt camper version with four beds, stove, sink, shower, fridge, etc.
It says “Help me. I need a respray!”
Van looks like a CA Bedford.
I believe you have to look at it backwards – preferably after ingesting a mind-altering substance. Then you’ll find that it says, “Paul is dead.”
I’m doing that now……… It says “Cranberry Sauce” !
“Gurig-Anin Ltd.” ?
Given it’s a Bedford CA there’s a fair chance it might be an ice-cream van. Early single-piece windscreen so 1958-64.
Ain’t got a scooby. Once Bedford was mentioned I hatched a crazy idea that the last 3 letters used to be “DTV” for Dealer Team Vauxhall, but there’s no way.
If it’s an LHD Bedford CA then it’s probably in Canada (and possibly an Envoy), apparently they use “Ltd” for limited companies so is it the name of a notable Canadian company?
Is it a Envoy CA. Canadian version of the Bedford? It is left hand drive.
TV Repair LTD? Just a guess. How do we know that the picture is not reversed and this is actually a vehicle in the UK and the lettering is backwards in the photo?
If the van is a rockin’ don’t come a knockin’
R&R Repair LTD?
My CA a 59 was signwritten for Massey Ferguson sales and service it had been a workshop van in a previous life, they were once popular and common in NZ Ive seen one in the wild and one other here since 03.
It’s painted on a van
Nice going. I knew I could stump the Americans with this one, since the CA was never imported there, but I thought the LHD would throw the Brits off.
You guys are good.
