Recommended Posts

Hi All

 

I have an Ruddington auction catalogue from April 19th - 22nd 1966, and among the numerous types of vehicles sold at this auction are dozens of Austin Champs. If you have a champ and you know its Military registration number I am happy to see if was sold at this sale. If its in there am happy to copy the entry and email to you to add to your vehicles history.

 

Some entries have a pencilled in price next to them - in 1966 you could buy a single lot of 7 champs for £240.....:cry:

 

Get in touch if your interested - lots of other vehicles in there too:

Hi - There are a lot of Bedfords, but cant spot any with OXC suffix

 

( as an example) :

 

BEDFORD TRACTOR (TASKER) (SERIES SAG) 57AN13

BEDFORD TRACTOR ( SCAMMELL) 76YY86

BEDFORD TRACTOR (BTC) GLU668

BEDFORD TRACTOR (TASKER) (SERIES SA3) 9861RN AND 1318RN

 

BEDFORD TRUCK (SERIES OLBC) 5 TONS 26BJ84 AND 25BJ10 AND 22BJ89

 

BEDFORD TRUCK (SERIES OLBD) 5 TONS 86BD53

 

If you know the military reg number please let me have it and I can search that way - its possible it was not accurately listed , some are just listed as Bedford tractor.

 

Regards

 

Jim
