For the history of the TT model, please refer to the description elsewhere in the catalogue for the truck with registration number 'HJ 5624'. This is ostensibly the same, though differs in having wooden artillery wheels with solid tyres.
This TT has been stored for many years at a family property. The truck presents well, but has not been used for some time and it would be advisable for it to be re-commissioned properly before used.
No paperwork or registration information is available with this TT.
