Split-Window Tow Truck

18 10 2012

My latest flea market finding – a split window single cab in almost original condition. Of course with some wear and tear, but never welded, rust-free and with the authentic patina of years of hard playing. Seems to have been a heavy duty tow truck some long time ago, with a huge winch still in place at the rear. With bullet indicators of the post-1959 T1s and a patent application number from 1959 on the base plate. So designed in 1959 on the then brand new 1960 model of the T1. Also comes with right hand steering and is labeled “Made in Gt. Britain”. And best of it all, the color could almost be Taiga Lily’s sage green!
