Access to the cargo bay was via twin rear doors that could be swung through 270° – but could not be latched against the body’s sides – or a sliding nearside door.
It concealed a step plus a grab-handle to make it easier to climb aboard.
The rear bumper incorporated a step too, with access further aided by the presence of a grab-handle mounted on the offside door pillar.
Ten load tie-down points were provided and a full-height steel bulkhead with a window protected by a mesh grille prevented unsecured cargo from sliding into the cab.
A shelf above the cab was accessible from the load area.
The cargo bed was protected by a tailored cover. However, the load area had no other defence against minor scrapes aside from the hardboard panels that were mounted on the doors to half their height.
All the doors, including the cab doors, have big, vertically mounted, exterior handles. That makes them easier to open when wearing thick gloves.
