Some old 'classics'

Some pics of my old mans old wagons from yester-year for you to enjoy.
I grew up in most of thesse at sometime or another :laughing:

Incidentally, If anyone knows of a Leyland Marathon for sale, in a resurectable condition, please let me know.

The ERF was driven by uncle, out of John Mansfield Timber at Marchington, Staffs, and the little chap in one of the pics is me :laughing: The Leylands were piloted by my old man. He used to pull out of British Gypsum at Fauld with a flat on plaster. The tipper was used on coal in the early days.

there might be, its a case of finding them and scanning them in.
Got some fond memories of growing up in them wagons. Every school holiday, on every day possible, I’d be out there with my dad.
I was raised on Diesel fumes :laughing:

K. Goodwin, if you look in or buy " Heritge commercials, or Classic and vintage commercials " magazine’s they both have huge sections in the back of finished lorries or part finished projects or even wrecks to do up (if you’ve got the room or time) to buy. I myself have recently seen a finished marathon in for sale, i know this because they have a special bond to me too. My grandad had one DLG 370S with a ■■■■■■■ NTC250, he had it for about 8yrs. Went like the proverbial off a shovell.

there s one in march edition of classic and vintage commercials, in the classiified section under AEC,( right place!!)…trunkera1

park your wagon on your sheets and your bed on your boots
