Re: WWII bomb damage in Barrington Street, South Shields...
hi allan,i did not import the bedford,i bought it from the man that did, so i don,t know the cost of importing,he thought it was to much of a challenge once he saw it,when the truck arrived in new zealand from england in the fifties,it would have looked like the truck in normans pic,they, the quarry owners then cut the truck in half and extended the chassis by eight feet,to carry bigger loads,they also put an extended tipper body on it,when i got it i had to cut it in half and reduce it by eight feet and get the chassis plated,, then it was back to the original size as supplied by vauxhall motors england,
