HIS­TORY IS CALL­ING

Classic Ford - - HERITAGE -

Ian has a cou­ple of ques­tions about his Mk1 van that he’s hop­ing this fea­ture may an­swer via the knowl­edge­able Clas­sic Ford read­er­ship.The first is to try and dis­cover the his­tory.All he knows so far was that its one com­mer­cial owner was a com­pany called LA Cooper Heat­ing En­gi­neers.Where were they based (pre­sum­ably some­where near Uck­field), when did Coop­ers have the van un­til and where did it go af­ter that? It’s al­ways nice to get some idea of the life a rare clas­sic has had and hope­fully some­one will know. The other ques­tion is prompted by Rachel: If this van has no head­lin­ing, dash top (be­low), and rubber floor­ing but is badged as Deluxe, what the hell didn’t a base model come with? An­swers on a post­card please!
