I used to drive one of those in the 1980s for the Basildon Phab club. It had seats down one side and mounts for wheelchair clamps down the other and a hydraulic ramp at the rear. It was quite a reach from the driver's seat to get it into 2nd or 4th gears, you almost needed a double jointed shoulder! Every other driver hated it (we also had Transits), but I loved it.

I know of a cab to one of these of pound lane Basildon always liked the two lower windows at the front! Sadly its seen better days now.
