Have a look at the photos posted by Super Dave earlier in this thread, they show the proper door colour.

The answer is in the second photo you show in post 27. You can see a portion of the door....same colour as the outside of the box.

With the ECC (which will be on one of the two van body data plates) one can look up the installation kit, and see what purpose things were for. There are many office versions, and all of their kit layouts will differ.

Thanks Rob . Someone in the chain of ownership of this box deemed it was a good idea to keep the data plates .. I have prior experience with this kind of habit and i quite dislike it .

Found the answer : Portable 24 v lamp. Found these pictures on a current advertisement in the London Ont area. This van is being represented as an ambulance . I am doubtful…

Looks like a very nice start to a big project! I'm sure it will be better than new when you're done with it Robert

As for CORCAN Refurbs, I can't tell you how many units went through the system but I hauled a ton of clapped out van bodies to the Drumheller Maximum Security Penitentiary for rebuilds around 1990. What an awesome feeling driving into the main yard locked in with the inmates while they unloaded you We had to get searched big time and had tabs attached to the fuel caps so they could be locked while in there....weird .
I took a tour of the shop and I can tell you without a doubt that it was probably the most kitted out facility ever made......and unbelievably clean! The inmates obviously had a lot of pride in what they did as the finished products were spot on.
