Alan Mann Racing is trying to locate their old transporter, any ideas where it has ended up?

We use a 1976 Leyland Leopard as our transporter down here in South Australia (can't remember our logic but we love the old girl now), and we need a pair of rear brake drums, anybody have some lying around in their shed ...?

 

Appreciate any ideas as otherwise our only option is to cast new ones which is $$$$$ we could be spending on the race cars.

 

Thanks, James

Try some of the bigger bus companies, they often have stuff like that laying around. A quick google came up with this...

I think it's probably taken at the 'ring, which would more likely be in 1968

The guys at HCVC vintage truck forum are friendly and helpful, might be worth a try - they do buses too.

Aft'noon all,

 

This photo of a Commer Superpoise transporter was pointed out to me earlier today, in the livery of "Glencroft Equipe". It's not all that dissimilar to the van I retrieved last autumn.

 

Apologies if it's been mentioned here already:

Added: in the same album of photos, a b/w shot from 1961 of Ecurie Ecosse's transporter

Hello Oldclassiccar

 

Here is a picture of a Commer Superpoise in the service of Lyons Maid used for the delivery of their ice cream products to shops in the early/mid 1950s. It may be of interest as you have a Commer Superpoise transporter awaiting restoration which also began its life conveying ice cream for Fortes.

 

The Superpoise in 4wd form also served with the British Army around that time. I remember as a child passing a bodybuilders in Cowley, Middlesex where a number were parked awaiting delivery to a MoD central supply depot. I think the company was Whitsons - I believe they also built fire engines on Commer chassis, not unlike the Dinky Supertoy example.

I have just completed the restoration of the above van. It was partly inspired by a picture posted on this tread of a Lotus Racing Service van in period in a paddock in the 1960's- thanks for posting that picture- I am very happy with the way the van has turned out.

Also nice that the picture is in Duns, Jim would be pleased :up:

This popped up in my Facebook feed today, a Fordson/Thames 7V used as a motorcycle transporter.
