This truck was bought new by Pyne Gould Guinness in 1946. It was traded with a Thames Trader in 1958 to a farmer. Six months later, in 1959, it was sold to Derek Petrie. Bill Richardson bought it from him in March 1986.
The replica Fuel Tanker body was fitted off another truck in 2005. That tanker unit had been built for Mobil Oil and used as a promotional vehicle until Mobil gave it to Bill for his collection.
