Vauxhall Motors, Ltd., Luton, Beds

REPRESENTAT1VES of the new TK forward-control range (The Commercial Motor, September 9) constitute four of the seven exhibits. The TK vehicles all have forward-entrance cabs, with a vertical engine housed beneath the scat in a separate compartment. This affords a flat cab floor and simplifes insulation of the passenger space from heat and noise. Access to the engine is by hinged flaps in the rear cab skint .g.

The 71--ton truck exhibited has. a wheelbase of 13 ft. 11 in. It is powered by a Leyland 0.350 100-b.h.p. engine which drives a singlespeed axle through a five-speed gearbox.

Another Bedford newcomer on display for the first time is the light pick-up. This 10-cwt. model has a six-cylindered 113-ro.h.p. petrol engine as fitted in the Vauxhall Velox car. On an 8-ft. 5-in.-wheelbase, it has a cab similar to that employed for larger models in the TJ normal-control range and a 6-ft. 6-in.-long steel body. The gearbox is a three-speed all-synchromesh unit operated by a steering-column lever.

For 1961, the CA 15-cwt. van is mounted on 13-in.-diameter wheels and can carry 1-.} cwt. more payload. The long-wheelbase CA will be shown, whilst the final exhibit is a normalcontrol tipper with an oil engine and Weston bodywork. All vehicles shown are finished in the familiar Bedford red and white livery.
