…Unless you knew about the existence of this vehicle, the odds are that your guess as to its purpose would be way off beam. As the lower image indicates it has a dual-purpose.

The commercial body being simply lifted off and replaced by a rear end that contains two further seats and a retractable hood, ala the factory Minor Tourer. The body(ies) were built by Duple in 1930 and 1931 while the solitary survivor is GN 4524, (owned by Dave Cooksey) seen here without either type at Prescott ten years ago.
