AEC Y type Lorry

Evening all, was wondering if anyone had any photos of the AEC Y type lorry? Going to get the Matador Model so could do with a few references.

Cheers, and happy new year, Rob

Cheers, is there no difference between the Daimler and AEC type then? Looking at the Matador model, the cab roof seems different but not much else, then again the same can be said for most of the WWI British softskins

As far as I can make out, they're virtually identical. The relationship between LGOC and Daimler is complicated, because there was the Daimler engine as well as the Daimler bus body, but the B-type chassis was the first to have a lorry conversion.

I can't believe that I know this, but according to The London B-Type Omnibus:

During 1915 another design of chassis, some of them fitted with Tylor engines, was produced, being designated Y-type.

These Y-type, as well as the B-type supplied to the War Department up to early 1916, carried the name Daimler on the radiator although built at Walthamstow, but the agreement with the Daimler Company ceased in 1916, and thereafter direct sales ( including those to the War Department) were made straight from Walthamstow and bore the name A.E.Co. on the radiators, including variations designated YA, YB, and YC types.
