Here is a picture from Peru. The body of a GM TDH-3610 (serial #s 1222-1236 from 1948) mounted on a Leyland Tiger Cub chassis.

Minor changes to the windshield and doors

You can see part of the Leyland nameplate just above the front bumper. Typical British lug ring on the wheel. I would assume that the power train including engine is completely Leyland.

Here's another, this time from Cuba. GM components but heavy modifications.

Frankie...
Neither of these two photos are from Cuba.

The operator, CUTCSA, is from Uruguay.
