Ashley's Scammell

Bought April 2012 from the North East, where he says it has sat outside for 10 years with only a paint job on the front end in that period. After leaving the Army it would seem it went to Heriot Watt University in Edinburgh to be used by their Officer Training Corps. The headboard is just legible. I am very pleased to have found it in unrestored ex Army condition. It is a runner and apart from some woodwork that needs replacing is in remarkably good condition everywhere. Just needs some tlc and paint. 

Technical details:
6 cylinder 102bhp Gardner 6LW 8369cc diesel engine. Rear wheel drive via 6 speed gearbox. Servo assisted brakes. Leaf spring suspension. 8 ton winch. Fitted with 1400 x 20 tyres. Weight 21,645lbs or 9.66 tons. Length 20'3", width 8'8", height 9'5". Herbert Morris Crane with sliding jib. Introduced in 1939.
