Fordson WOT2 height

Recommended Posts

Hello to all, particularly any WOT2 owners.

I am about to put an order in for a timber garage/workshop.  But before I do I wanted to check the height of the Fordson WOT2. The quoted height of the garage doors is only 1.9m and I have read that the Fordson WOT2 is 2.2m high. Can anyone confirm this? I don’t actually own a WOT2 unfortunately, but it is on my list of vehicles that I would like to own, so I don’t want to make the garage too small to fit one in.
 

Confirmed height or experiences fitting one in a garage would be much appreciated.

Regards,

Tom

I have a figure of 90" = 2.29m for a WOT2E GS with it's cargo tilt in place. Remember that if the approach is not dead flat the vehicle will be at a similar angle until it has all four wheels in the garage. Also the door opening may be rather larger than the actual clearance under the open door.

Extra height is also useful if you want to unload a modern van under cover or any number of other scenarios that only happen if the door is a bit too small.

Thank you David, much appreciated. I'd better add a fair margin on the doorway height then. It would be sod's law if I find myself a WOT2 and then can't fit it in the garage!

Have you seen one or got one in mind? Its very good to set yourself a plan and follow it. 

Preparation is often key and something that can fill your time whilst looking.

I agree preparation and a overall plan is so important.  I built my workshop with no particular vehicles in mind, and the 1st vehicle I purchased was a Austin K9 radio vehicle which was 100mm higher than my workshop door!

A Ford WOT2 is 7' 6" high, and my Garage doors are 8 foot tall to enable me to drive it in. 

It is also 6' 6" wide, so you need at least 7 foot clearance.

Thanks for the info Gents. I hadn’t considered door width, doh! Was focussing too much on the height.

I haven’t identified a WOT2 yet, just really like the character of the truck and and the size, and as it’s likely to be the largest thing that I’ll get in a garage, so it’s on my wants list and something I will look out for. Haven’t seen one for sale though in a long time. I do have a tool kit spanner though, so it’s a start 😁.

I do recall a restored one listed on ebay a little while ago so they are about but still rare.
