Wanted: London Delivery Van

Wanted, London delivery van, dray or similar. I am restoring a 1908 Dennis van, originally purchased in chassis form by Carter Paterson and Co express carriers. They removed the axles and springs from one of their horse drawn vans (probably ca. 1890) and mounted it on the Dennis chassis. It was used to move parcels between depots whilst the local collections continued to be carried out by horse van.

Ideally I would not like to break up a good usable example however, if there is something out there with rotten wheels, etc... but the ironwork and some of the timber could be salvaged then that would be ideal.

The van needs to be around nine feet long. I can send photos of previous projects to show what is possible and my approach to restoration.
