The club has been advised of five ex-military vehicle based timber cranes situated in the Borders which are for Sale. There is:
An AEC Matador believed to be complete with original engine.
Four Ford Thames E4 trucks from the 1950’s, three retrofitted with a variety of diesel engines and the fourth being minus an engine.
For pictures of the vehicles see the club website Sales / Wants page at http://www.scottishmvg.org/sales-and-wants .
All been worked hard but could be used either to form the basis of full restoration projects or as donor vehicles for the provision of main assemblies and parts.
The current owner, who is open to offers, would like to see them preserved or at least made good use of rather than being cut up which is their likely end if they cannot be disposed of before the month of May.
Serious enquiries and to arrange weekend viewing should be addressed to Mr Bruce Redburn who can best be contacted by e-mail at email@example.com or failing that by phoning 077667 15560
