Looking on the internet it seems late 20’s to early 30’s Chev trucks were assembled in Britain with Canadian parts and named British Chevrolet. Could not find reference to Canadian assembled trucks here in Australia although Canada was part of the British Empire with favoured trading relations.
British Bedfords had their own motors and mechanicals, but remember finding a W Bedford and Chev four water pumps were the same.
Long story short:- General Motors started assembling Chevs at the Hendon factory from 1923 and then to avoid tariffs more parts were manufactured in the UK. production moved to the Vauxhall factory at Luton in 1928 and in 1929 the LQ series with the stove bolt six engine was introduced, now with mostly UK made parts. The first Bedford appeared in April 1931 and although it was very similar to the Chev there were some important differences such as pressure fed oil in the engine and full floating axles.. The Chev was phased out a year later.
