This one isn't a Mercedes, but it is modern, and sits here better than starting another thread.
If I had realised how many delivery-van photos I would accumulate, I would have started the thread with a different title.
This is another crop from a photo from a prolific contributor. What is it?

Thanks for that. Since it was a crop, that was the full available resolution, and it is tied down sufficiently for me.
Here is another of the genre. These are crops from photos of trams in street settings, which I am scanning for tram groups.

Thanks again. I do keep finding more.
This one is hardly 'modern': I took the photo in 1970, but I find it hard to think of it as historic, and it sits with these delivery vans quite happily.
It seems to be a refrigerated (or insulated) delivery van, but certainly not an icecream-vendor van.
My guess: Toyota Dyna.

Jeez Roderick the pic of the Toyota Dyna at Murwillumbah rail station bought back some memories,
it was owned by Aub Martin Seafoods of Tweed Heads,they sold great fish & chips as well as fresh seafood.
In the fifty's my dad had the Royal mail contract from Brisbane to Murwillumbah and the mail had to be at the station,
on schedule 6 days a week, the local small crop farmers would bring there produce to our place and that was put on the train as well.
