Lorry reminds me of the film "Hell Drivers" a 1957 British film starring Stanley Baker, Herbert Lom, Peggy Cummins, Patrick McGoohan and Sean Connery. Slightly older lorries than this.

I think this lorry is a Bedford, Hell drivers used Dodge trucks they were about the same size as this. That was a great film (anyone know where i can get a copy)

You're right this is a Bedford Lorry. I will post a photo of it that I took at the Vintage Rally. "Hell Drivers" can be purchased from Amazon I like looking at the youtube clips, the driving test one is good and so obvious that the film was speeded up in bits but I guess in the days of the rural cinema I would never noticed that!

The film is great and well worth seeing. The famous actors who were just starting out include 007 Sean Connery, Patrick McGoohan of Dangerman & Prisoner fame, Gordon Jackson, William Hartnell (Dr Who) etc is gritty and exciting. I never tire of watching it.
