WW2 British/Canadian rare scrap yard haul

Recommended Posts

Great news ! I've managed to save, all the ww2 British/Canadian vehicles from a Leeds scrap yard. The scrap yard, had only days to clear the site before, the new owners Audi cleared it. The hoard comprised of, three Bedford QLs. Bedford Trooper, QLR & a rare QL Tipper, Fordson Wot 6 & a Canadian Ford F15A 2 x trailers 1944 totally complete lubrication trailer & a complete Coventry climax fire pump. Plus a huge amount of nos spare parts, inc new engines for Bedford MW, QL doors, wings, mudflaps, canvases, seats, windscreens, engine spares, jerry cans & ammo boxes inc some wooden lee Enfield rifle boxes etc etc. All the vehicles, are very complete, with all data plates, brackets, clocks, original bodies etc present. The QLR is very complete, with all its fixtures & fittings inc the roof mounted aerial mounts. Sadly the body has collapsed, under its own weight. Hopefully with the many spares, some of the above vehicles, could be restored.

Hi all,

 

all the the parts, except the engines are Bedford QL parts. The engines are Bedford MW. There isn't any pioneer tools, except wartime jerry cans, ammo boxes, starting handles & toll rolls.

I'm not looking forward to the transport bill lol. Everything will be for sale, once I've gone through all the boxes of parts etc.

You have to pay for quality Stu, look what happend with the other company......I rest my case (lol).

Lol Craig ! All the parts are Bedford QL & a few Wot 6 parts. The only MW parts are NOS engines. Obviously I'm sure there will be some cross over between MW & QL parts ?? Sadly I don't know how to upload pics. More than happy, to email pics to someone who can upload them, for the forum members. There's so many parts to identify, it's hard for me know what's what. New parts found are nos QL tarp covers.

Nice work. Would be keen on any interesting QL bits. Any QLR bits I would be interested in if you have pictures. I also need a rad cap seal...maybe a Penthouse tent for the QLR if you found one

Basically I'm wanting to sell the QL Tipper, QLR & the Wot 6 as complete restoration projects. What way they have a lot better chance, of being saved. Which is the main reason I saved them in the first place. Once these vehicles, have been sold, ill sort the parts out. Overwise ill end up with aload of scrap vehicles. The Bedford QLR, Besford Tipper & the Wot 6 are very complete vehicles with bodies. Plus a lot of spares, to back them up with. If anyone is interested, in any of the above, please contact me at stuart.wright@hotmail.co.uk

 

cheers

I did indeed !

 

Hanno has kindly offered, to put a load of pics of the scrap yard vehicles plus spare parts, up on the forum for everyone to enjoy. This is by no means all the spare parts, having just found some nos Bedford QL windscreens & manifolds. Serious interested parties, can view the vehicles, by prior appointment. And don't forgot, we have a lot of spare parts for the QLs. Inc Nos windscreens, wings, mudflaps, doors, 11.0 x 20 tires on rims etc etc.

 

Cheers
