You may remember the name Rediffusion from the early years of TV when the company introduced their TV rental and sales service throughout the UK. Less known, perhaps, its operational activities covered many more aspects of radio and TV broadcasting and supply with its foundations going back as far as the late 1920s.
The Ford 400E Rediffusion replica dates from 1964, registered ALV 252B and comes decorated in the two tone Rediffusion livery of dark red and grey with a white band running round the waist of the vehicle. The black and white company logo is printed on the sides of the van and is also repeated in white across the back doors. Other trim includes a white radiator grille, silver door handles and the red and silver Thames logo on the front and rear of the van.
