Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

FEW manufacturers in these days of standardization can offer, as can Brush Coachwork, Ltd., Loughborough, a range of about 25 standard bodies. The latest addition to the Brush rangeis a mobile canteen or ice-cream parlour.

Based on a 10-14 chassis, themodel • was first introduced three months ago and will be exhibited at the Dairy Show to be held at Olympia from October 25-28. The claimed performance for this chassis offers a maximum range of 40 miles of continuous running, or 28 miles with eight stops per mile, at a cruising speed of 16 m.p.h.

Apart from the unusually attractive coachwork on this chassis, the equipment is comprehensive and adaptable for a variety of uses. Perspex side windows slide fore and aft to permit access to the serving shelves which fold up to cover the display counter. The walls of the body are double-panelled, as Is the roof.

Above the driving compartment there is a water tank from which water is piped to the plastic wash basin installed in the forward section of the body behind the driving cabin.

To ensure maximum headroom, the spare wheel has been removed from under the rear of the body and is now attached behind the full-front under a Cover. The rear wheels are enclosed, and rubber glazing strips seal the windows and windscreen.

Brush electric vehicles are distributed in the London area by Henlys, Ltd., Commercial Vehicles Divisions, Osnaburgh Street, London, N.W.1.
