Another bit of recycling here; the previous year this van body had been seen on a Walls Ice Cream refrigerated van with a Commer cab. Here it is the new ERF 44G unit with a van load of jam - or lemon cheese depending upon which side you look at. The ERF Moorhouses van was made from 1958 when it was released in March of that year together with the ERF platform lorry with which it shared some components. It was deleted in 1960 and there are no listed variations.

This was a bit of a bargain, on eBay it was very saggy in the middle, but a little time in the workshop has it all straight and nice again. It's worth looking at these pictures just to see the level of detail. Detail you often miss looking at the actual toy with the naked eye.
