1954 Fordson Thames ET6 - Sussex
This well presented Fordson recovery truck has had a 2nd driven axle fitted and these were the know as Sussex.
I am not sure who carried out this particular conversion but a company called Primrose produced a number of such vehicles in the 1950's and 60's.
I understand that this vehicle was originally fitted with a winch for towing gliders and was used on RAF airfields.
The image was taken at the Bedfordshire Steam Rally,England in September 2011.
