A fourth page of period motoring adverts.

All containing E83Ws in them somewhere!

This is the fourth page on the site, featuring period ads that happen to contain 10cwt vans or pickups in them...thanks to Les for digging out this set and sending 'em over...

Dominion petrol
Dominion petrol (1953)

The ad shown here was published back in 1953, and shows a nice 2 tone 10cwt van streaking along. Dominion was one of the brands that came under the wing of National Benzole, one of many brands of fuel that has disappeared from garage forecourts over the last few decades.

New van is launched
E83W Launch advertising in 1938

This dealership advertisement dates to July 2nd 1938, just as the brand new E83W hit the streets. The arrangement of classic Fordson in this pic must have been quite a sight. A few 5cwt interlopers can be spotted if you look closely, with a pair of larger trucks (E88Ws perhaps?) in the centre. The ad below is for the same dealer.

E83W launch
The new E83W is here!!!!

Another J Hollingsworth advertisement in a different publication, but also from 1938, introducing the exciting new Fordson 10cwt, which came with, amongst other things, 32bhp, 119 cu. ft. of loadspace, bucket type adjustable driving seat, and Royal blue finish, all this for 168. Were the early vans only available in this one colour???? note the bulbous 7W-type headlamp lenses.
