Whats This 8x8 ?

Recommended Posts

It's an ALBION 8 x 6, model CX33.

 

According to Bart H Vanderveen it was originally an 8 x 8 with outer axles steering, but later became an 8 x 6 with one engine driving outer axles and the other driving no. 3 axle and with the 2 front axles steering.

 

Which makes one wonder if there was only ever one built?

 

So - once you've worked out which end is the front you'll have it sussed :-D

Thank you so much for that piece of information! When I first saw it on youtube, I spent hours googling all things Alvis and Thornycroft with no success, it plagued me for ages, and now I also find it was posted on here in 2008.
