The mechanical horse must have been a restoration as they were long gone by the 80s  There were loads in the 60s down wilford road  I think they also did a later model with a rounded front  When i was a kid they were like bees running about and even railway horse and carts  meeowed

Collars Ltd of Wembley owned AUU 602, a Commer two-ton chassis with an "art deco" streamlined van body by Holland Coachcraft of Govan in Glasgow. This van was displayed at the 1933 Commercial Vehicle Show
