Vehicle historyEdit

Built in 1957 for the Swiss Army as tank transporter tractor haulage unit. Sold off after its service life ended.

In 1991 it was bought back to the UK by Walker Machinery of Witney in Oxford who then sold it on to Foxwood Plant for use as a recovery vehicle, but it just stood in their yard and was sold off again in 2001 when Tony Jordan acquired it. An extensive restoration was undertaken and then it was repainted in Mr. Jordan's company to red and white livery.

In 2010 the vehicle was at the Ashby Magna Midsummer Vintage Festival with a 'For Sale' sign on it. Sold to Mr Graham Booth in 2012 and repainted in his livery. Now owned by Mark Lord and shown in the Livery of 'Mark Lord' Heavy Haulage, Boroughbridge North Yorkshire since 2015
