It's a Dutton Commander apparently. The S2 variant in that link looks a bit less fugly, but that may just be because the top's off?

Cheers Reg, it was good fun, although I can't take credit for the bus - that belongs to a mate. I have been thinking about getting another van, but it would have to be a good bit smaller than this - I'm just the help on this job.

It is indeed, with a 6-cyl Gardner diesel engine.

A Gardner? blimey I'd have put money on it being a Cummins '300' series diesel as fitted to the Leyland DAF 45 which it must be based on :?

Dutton's run in with Trading StandardsI bet there's more to this than meets the eye. They probably found reasons to condemn it because they didn't want it lowering the tone.
