1949 Thames E493C Van for the North American market. Actually the van in this photo is a UK market Fordson E494C, modified with an airbrush to reflect North American trim specifications.



1949 Thames 1/4 ton (E493C) and 1/2 ton (E83W) Vans. The building in the background may or may not be part of the Henry Ford Museum in Dearborn , MI.



1950 Thames E83W (Canada)

1950 E83W Thames Pickup. Yes, Ford did try importing a mini-pick up well before the 1972 Courier.



Ford's first small SUV? This is the cover of the sales piece for the 1951 Thames Estate Wagon, as sold by Ford of Canada.

A rare photo of an E83W at work in North America. Its from the Winter 2006 'check it out', the publication of the Vancouver Public Library. Pictured is an E83W Thames van owned by the library in front of the Collingwood Branch (Kingsway at Rupert St.) in 1952. Both the van and the Branch were almost new at the time.
