ALBION WD HD 23S (1953) - front view

Picture taken late Feb 2009. Front view of an ALBION WD HD 23S (1953) minus wings of course. Fifty six years old, and the headlamps still work. Runs, drives and stops OK. Leave it standing as long as you like and it doesn't matter how cold it is; it will start like someone drove it yesterday! One of The great British (Sorry, Scottish) truck manufacturers. Those were the days!!

She's ripe for restoration, but it would be nice to see it not over done.

Restoration started early March. Cab and front end to be done first. Donor vehicle being stripped and parts refurbished for transplant asap. Would like it roadworthy by early Sept. Will post more pictures soon.
