Dodge D308 4x2 Tipper, LAD cab, 1965

Generally powered by a Perkins diesel, these were very popular vehicles. Supplied new to Pointers of Norwich, and used on cement work, sold on to Clifford Pye Ltd and sold on again to L. Fletcher and converted to tipper. Purchased by R. Lea of Edgmond, Shropshire from a farmer in 1998 and rebuilt.

Location: CVRTC Classic Commercial Motor Show 2002, at Gaydon, Warwickshire.

These Dodges in Australia were designated as a 1060 model and had a 360ci petrol v8 motor and were known as a firecracker Dodge as many caught on fire thru petrol leaking from the carburettor. The one I drove didn't suffer with the problem and towed a 38ft bogie livestock trailer

I remember these when I worked for Pointers in 1966,
most of them had mixer bodies, but I think there were also a couple of tippers.You may be interested to know that Clifford Pye are still trading as a large farming group about 8 miles North of Norwich and run a modern fleet of artics .Great picture Bill.

When I moved to another firm they gave me one of these d308, it was a flt wagon and could it shift then they started to get these newer dodge with a tilt cab with a perkins in it, what a load of rubbish they were handbrake started to jam on even at the docks after about 10 minutes it would come of after you built your air up.

I had one of these with a 20ft body grossing out at 12t as my first truck (652 ARV), if I could have kept one truck she would have been it.

My 652 had a Perkins P6 in her as well, pulled like a train, she was followed by a K series unit with one of the first two V8 Cummins in her, she went well but because of having very few motorways back then she did a set of injectors in every 6 weeks. Dad sold her for a new 69 Leyland Badger ergomatic unit.
