Description

1936 Leyland Beaver Tanker

**NO CURRENT V5 - NEW OWNER TO APPLY**

Entered by a valued supported of our auctions. This Leyland was built in 1936, fitted with Leyland's 8 litre diesel engine.

Early history is very sketchy, but from the many early photographs it would seem that this lovely old Beaver spent some time as a showman's vehicle. This is supported by an old green log book in the file. 

Detailed photo's show the chassis/cab being restored and a fuel tank being fitted to the chassis and owned by Dixon's fuels from 1983. This beautifully restored tanker attended many historic vehicle rallies in the 1980's and was very well known on the rally circuit. 

Present owner is an Avid collector of older commercial vehicles and has continued to look after her during his stewardship. Unfortunately the engine timing slipped when being unloaded and presently is not running. 

*The vendor has informed us that the vehicle did run well but the timing has slipped when unloading* 

We highly recommend that you view in person any potential purchase and take time to inspect paperwork and make any relevant enquiries.

On display at our Pickering site.

**This lot will go through our auction on Friday 5 February**
