Mark F - November 1958 to January 1963
Introduction of the Mark F Ranger. This was a commercial version of the Family Saloon. It had no rear side windows or rear seats but was fitted with an opening rear window for loading purposes. The carrying capacity was 3 cwt. or 31 cu. ft. All bodies were in primer but could be painted for an extra £4.50p!
The Mark F Ranger Van was briefly introduced. A small batch of only 39 vehicles were made with the passenger seat omitted. This was intended to increase the carrying capacity by freeing up the passenger area. On the drivers side, a triangular aluminium panel was fitted to the floor at the left hand side of the seat to provide some sort of protection against any of the goods being carried!
