Hi rog8811, you're dead right, I have spoken to Ron Groom who sold both trucks around twenty five years ago and he said they had a local firm build the new cab when the original hard cab got too rough. I'm hoping to find a scrap hard cab to use as a pattern to build a new one as this one is now quite rotten and not the prettiest thing on earth. Thanks for the interest, cheers Lee.

 

Evening Lee

 

I have a tired hard top cab that might help you get closer to your goal, call me on 07860 824608

Cheers Steve MaccDT

Nice to see it John. I remember this as an operating recovery truck at Dixons yard near Hunsdon when I was a kid, I'm so glad it has made it into preservation. My dad drove Diamond T's for a bit during the war and every time we drove past the yard it would trigger a few "I remember when " moments.

We collected the Diamond from Dixons same old yard it had worked from and sat in since 1966 ! when she was bought from Ruddington sales !  I'm told it replaced a Matador they ran before that.
