Which of the following most accurately describes the problem?

A REVISED front-end appearance and Z-1 detail modifications to the cab and rear end are announced for the Bedford C-type 10-12-cwt. and 15-cwt. vans. These are the first changes in appearance since the C-type was introduced in 1952. Since that time more than 110,000 vans and chassis have been built. •

A one-piece curved windscreen replaces the two-piece screen, but occupies about the same area. Larger wipers are now fitted and the wiped area is claimed to be substantially greater than before. The grille also has been altered.

Flashing direction indicators are now standard equipment. Those at the front are combined with the side lights and those at the rear are mounted at waist height for maximum visibility. The rear lights are now above the bumper line.

A tray is provided for books and documents in the near side of the cab. Improved rear seals at the sliding side doors make them more resistant to damage_ A revised instruments panel incorporates the direction-indicator con-. Vol at the top and the ignition/lighting switch below.

Aluminium paint finish is used for the wheels. Hub plates are supplied in body colour or primer. A full-width rear bumper is available as a production Option at a cost of £1 18s. 9d., and other new accessories include a sun visor and a band-pump windscreen washer.

Prices of the current vans are as follows: 10-12-cwt. chassis, £421 2s. 2d.; 10-12-cwt. van, £521 2s. 2d. (purchase tax in each case £.76 2s. 2d.); 15-cwt. chassis, £429 us. 11d.; 15-cwt. van, £529 1 ls. 1 Id, (purchase tax in each case *.77 10s. 11d.).
