1953 Leyland Prototype
From: Richard Prince Fri 25 Feb 2011 22:19
We have recently purchased a 1953 Leyland Prototype and we have been told that you (LVVS) used to own it. Do you, or anybody, have any information on this vehicle?

I'm a (relative) newcomer to LVVS, only involved since the 90s, so it doesn't ring any bells with me.

Can you give a bit more information? Or e-mail (via the Society's e-mail address) a photo, and I will ask around.

Hi I presume this the Tiger Cub test bed supplied to Clayton Dewandre at Lincoln for brake experiments ?

It was later used by Lincoln Corporation as a breakdown tender for a spell , passing via the LVVS into preservation .

It operated on trade plates while in Lincoln , but gained a Portsmouth reg I recall , and a new dropside body.

It was a flat back origainally with weights added .

Hope this helps

As is always the way, I found this picture of it while looking for something else on the web
