Dad's Army Van

A piece of BBC history comes up for grabs in Bonhams auction The Patrick Collection Part III at Mercedes-Benz World Brooklands in Weybridge, Surrey, on 3 December. This is Lance Corporal Jones’ butchers van from the BBC television series Dad's Army, estimated value £20,000 to £30,000. TV aside, it's a 1935 Ford Box Van. The rifle portholes were added for the show (CLICK)!

They don't make automobiles like that any more. The beauty of the vehicle can be enjoyed by motor enthusiasts and non-drivers like myself. The fact that it is also a piece of British television history, makes it all the more special.

Those old bangers may look good, but a lot of them were death traps. So it's a good thing they don't make them like that anymore.
