Does anyone remember where Wickford Service Station was located?
The top photograph is of a Model 51 V8 Service Car (break down truck). These were not manufactured in the UK, they were imported from the USA. The service cars were supplied without a crane, the American service cars were supplied to dealers in America with a Weaver Crane fitted.
The right hand drive service cars imported into the UK were fitted with a UK manufactured Harvey Frost crane at the Ford manufacturing Plant at Dagenham, Essex.
If anyone has any further information about the company or the Ford Model 51 Service Car and maybe its current location, it would be of interest to me.
