    I do not own this Vehicle but I know the person looking to sell it and offered to put it here to increase the possibility that an enthusiast might take it up and restore it.

    Chassis is an unknown but will probably need welding or replacing front outriggers are rusted,

    Diesel engine but has been standing for some time

    Of course they are under no illusions about the condition, but at least it looks pretty complete, and the parts have some value, they would just be interested in a sensible offer.

    Location is near Bradford and viewing could be arranged for a serious potential customer.


    Let me know if you are interested and I can put you in touch

    It's quite a project for sure, but I deliberately left it looking like it is, I think half an hour with a good pressure wash would make quite a difference, and give you the heart to get moving on it.

    Its not been touched for quite some time, but as I said half an hour with a good jet wash and it would look pretty different.
    You may get a nasty letter from David Attenborough though regarding the wildlife made homeless.

    Make an offerover£1500 and its yours.
    Parts must be worth that, or just think how much you would save on window cleaning

    I would bet thats low miles . Looks like 30,000 on the speedo . shame its been sat in the damp but the bulkhead looks solid and the rest looks straight apart from the dent in the roof .. weigh in the snorkel and its a good useable truck :)

    I was actually trying to sell it for the wife of a friend of mine, he died and she didn't know what to do with it, after a while she decided that she wanted to hang on to it.
    She wanted to have it restored but I'm not sure if that will ever happen.

    Looking at these pics again, it looks like its been on hard standing by the appearance of the moss on the tar around the truck, and that the owner had supported the weight by lowering the support legs . When you consider this is a cherry picker it was probably never used in the wet or inclement weather so in theory the chassis should be in reasonable condition . Mind you they seem to rot if you stare at them long enough, but in theory it should be a decent solid low miles project .. just loose the ugly load on the back .. I know mine responded well to a good power wash inside and out .. Pics of the underside would help sell it .. or not :)

    To be fair if you zoom in around the interior position it doesn't look to shabby

    I bet it would see quick if it was cleaned up

    My Mrs is well onto me else I'd have made an offer ha ha
