1946 Bedford OWSC Breakdown Lorry



1946 Bedford OWSC Breakdown Lorry

Most utility cabbed Bedfords started life as military vehicles, but not all!

Registerd to Stuart & Co in 1946 with no notified keepers since 1986. 

Fitted chariot style body carrying a Harvey Frost style jib , probably 5 ton, with double handle winch. 

Would be lovely to see her at shows, maybe with a 30's car on the hook.

On site now for viewing.

We are open 7 days a week here at Thornton Le Dale for pre-sale viewing, although a quick phone call prior to travelling is advised.

Don't forget. We personally collect FREE of charge around 90% of all our auction vehicles.

So, if you have a vehicle which you would like us to re-home.... just make the call. 01751 474455

Thank you.
