White and Yellow
Arrived at THV
Leyland tractor unit converted into a breakdown tender.
With several cars, vans and a pick-up truck now in the THV ancillary fleet, providing convenience to members in transporting supplies or parts from local scrap yards for example, we have now added a recovery truck to the squad.
Former Ellie Rose UK (Hull) based Leyland Recovery Truck F277CRH has joined the ancillary fleet here at THV, after being purchased by one of our members. The wrecker came up from Ellie Rose at the same time as Tiger C128KJO. The 1988 Leyland Freighter tractor unit, with 160 turbo engine, has been previously converted into a breakdown recovery vehicle and has been in the Ellie Rose fleet for a number of years. In recent years, it has became second choice behind a more recently purchased ERF wrecker with Ellie Rose, which was bought from Trevor Wigleys.
F227CRH will provide a secondary option to normal vehicle recovery methods used by THV members, and shall be an attraction to enthusiasts in its own right.
