Pictures 1 - 6 are views of the Scammel Trunker which came as a 32 ton gross tractor unit from Shell/BP. It had a Leyland 680 engine and a 6 speed gate-change gear box. At first it towed with a concrete block above the 5th wheel and a bar, later acquiring the wrecker body, (in some of the photos), and a concrete filled girder across the front. Even later when a fault developed on the centre axle the axle was removed and it continued its role in 4 wheel guise. A fantastic motor, it would pull a house down!
