Historical
: The C4 was introduced as a successor to the CS8 in 1942 and was produced until 1944. The C4 was essentially the same truck as the CS8, but it had a 4-cylinder engine. and was fitted with a full windscreen and metal doors like the late CS8's.
The Mk II arrived in November 1943, the only difference being that the back axle had been moved rearwards to increase the wheel base. This was done to be able to mount the various "standard" War Office bodies and to obtain better weight distribution. Other dimensions were unchanged.
Besides the GS version a house-type bodied version with a No. 9 wireless set were produced.
The CS8 and C4's were eventually replaced by the 4-cylinder
C8 Quad model that began production in November 1944.
Note the spare wheel mounted between the cab and rear.
