Oxford #NFDE008 N Ford400E Van (Southdown) The Southdown bus fleet was one of the most popular and easily recognised of its time and in model miniature, it is also a collecting favourite. The company's green and cream public service vehicles comprised single deck and double deck buses and would have been supplemented by a fleet of support vehicles such as this van across a wide area of southern England. Registered 8063 CD, the green and cream Ford 400E carries the Southdown signature gold lettering, including address details of its Engineering Depot in Edward Street, Brighton. Even the Ford Thames marque features in red on the front and rear of the van. The side advertising panels and bumpers are finished in cream, rounding off a great little model to add to your Southdown fleet.
