The Leyland Sherpa van was manufactured between 1974 and 1982. It was originally designed to be built on the car production line, which meant it had a narrow back.
It was launched initially as the Leyland Van but in 1975, the name was changed to Leyland Sherpa.
This model Sherpa is employed at the Reading Post Office depot, No. 5080294, registered KUF 293P from 1975/76. The Royal Cipher with Crown features colourfully on the side panels of our van with Royal Mail printed boldly in gold and black above. The depot details are printed in black on the cab doors.
External trims are mostly silver with some black to the windscreen surrounds. The interior is also black. The radiator grille is silver wiped black, into which is embedded the Leyland name. The name also appears in the lower corner of the nearside rear door.
