I have come across this; http://west-midlands-buses.fpic.co.uk/p26185770.html It has a FORD badge on it front.

as far as I know everything in that style was made by Ivceo http://west-midlands-buses.fpic.co.uk/p62183789.html

Its the same thing, but Ford own Iveco. Quite usual to see lorries and vans with both Ford and Iveco badges shoved on the front.

Palatine, you are wrong their. Iveco is owned by Fiat and Renault, and the Iveco range was a joint operation. UK Daily vans were being assembled at the Ford truck plant in the UK, alongside the Ford Cargo truck range. When Ford decided they didn't wand the heavy commercial side, they sold the factory to Fiat, who then closed it very soon after, and shipped production over to Italy & France, where Iveco became a Fiat/Renault op. It looks like its a 59-10 TurboDaily in that photo, with the gutless 100 bhp 2.8 4 pot TD

Steering column, front axle.....Later models used the Iveco Eurocargo parts, and The Solo & Excel & Tempo and Versa still use a lot of Iveco parts in the steering..
