Nick is right, Kay's catalogue s were part of the once mighty Great Universal Stores group and they had a very big fleet of A35 vans for home deliveries. A few have survived but they had a hard life as did most vans that were in commercial use at that time. I did a feature on some of them a couple of years ago. Time I did an update for the Autumn Sidelights magazine....

I have Got the full history of my car from the DVLA by filling in a V888 (available from the internet )and a cheque for £5. Well worth the money.
