Oxford Diecast Ford 400E Rediffusion
The Rediffusion brand name can be traced back to 1928, but its name is synonymous with the early days of ITV being the first UK commercial television company to go on air on 22 September 1955, providing independent television to the coveted London weekday broadcasting franchise. Rediffusion spawned a number of related television services including low-bandwidth cable TV and radio distribution, and a retail chain, renting and servicing TVs radios, VCRs, and hi-fi systems. Naturally, such a diverse business required a vehicle fleet.
The Ford 400E van appearing in two-tone Rediffusion livery of dark red and grey dates from 1964, and is perfect for the period covering British Railways and BR blue and grey eras. A superb addition to any high street location in the Rediffusion greater London area. The van comes with the ALV 252B registration number.
