Trucks and Heavy Goods Vehicles
The first goods vehicles were often just cars with front seating and an open platform or boxed container behind. Quite quickly longer, larger and more powerful models were specifically designed for carrying goods and the Motor Truck or Lorry was developed.

 

Atkinson L1856 1955
1955 Atkinson L1856. Atkinson Lorries had been established in Preston in 1933, the successor to a company founded by the Atkinson brothers. Products generally followed a tried and tested line of sourcing trusted components and assembling them into a truck. By the time this truck was made Atkinson was also buying engines from Cummins, Daimler and Rolls-Royce in addition to its usual Gardner supply.
Dennis F8 1955
Dennis F8 1955. Dennis brothers established a business making bicycles in Guildford in 1895 but soon started making cars and larger vehicles. After the First World War they concentrated on larger vehicles, mainly Fire Engines, Dustcars and Buses
GMC CCKW350
GMC model CCKW350. Although losing out on the Army contract for 4x4 vehicles to competitor Dodge, General Motors landed sales of over 500,000 for this 6x6 2½tonnes CCKW350 truck from 1940-45.
Kaiser-Jeep M35 A2C
Kaiser-Jeep M35 A2C. The M35 was commissioned by the US Army in the 1940s as a 2½tonne 6x6 truck. Manufactured by a joint venture of Kaiser-Frazer Corporation and Willys-Overland Company, the M35 was also manufactured by Reo, American Motors and others.
Scammell Junior Constructor 1964
Scammell Junior Constructor 1964. Developed under Leyland ownership (since 1955), the Constructor was used to pull very heavy loads on massive trailers, or it could also take up the rear and push. The 'Junior' was so-called because unlike the 6X6 Super Constructor, the Junior was 6x4 with rear wheel drive only. The size of this tractor can be judged by noticing how the top of the radiator is the same height as the door frame on the building.
