AEC 6x6 'Matador' contract cards

Recommended Posts

Hello All, Being a fan of the AEC 0854 model, also known as the six wheeled 'Matador' I have been trying to find out if the contract cards for these vehicles still exist and if so who has them. I have tried the RAF Museum, RLC Museum, The Tank Museum and the British Commercial Vehicle Museum but no luck so far. Does anyone out there have any other ideas about where they may be located? If the cards no longer exist is there another way to trace chassis numbers to find out what they were originally built as? e.g.Coles Crane, Fuel Bowser etc. Ian.

Hi Ian,

I would suggest locating parts books for the 6x6, the army books normally list contract numbers and sometimes chassis numbers, which should narrow your search down.

OR you could pm me with the chassis number and l could check in my records to see if it appears in them

Hello Wally, Yes that's what I am really looking for as I want to obtain a broad reference as opposed to an individual vehicle. Is this information that you could supply me with? Ian.
