c1932 FOWLER HAULAGE TRACTOR AND MATCHING TRAILER  (c1970s)

IDEAL FOR DESCERNING COLLECTORS. SHOW GROUNDS. COUNTRY ESTATES. STATELY HOMES AND ALIKE.

VERY UNUSUAL. RESTORED STRUCTURALY AND MECHANICALY.  

IT RUNS VERY WELL. FORWARD AND REVERSE.

LOW GEARED FOR HAULING HEAVY WEIGHTS

THERE IS SO MUCH ENGINE COMPRESSION. THE STARTING HANDLE NEEDS TO BE TURNED BY SOMEONE STRONG. THE ENGINE HAS BEEN REBUILT. SEE PHOTOGRAPHS OF WORK

IT DRIVES LIKE A CAR OR SMALL COMMERCIAL VEHICLE

IT IS NOT REGISTERED WITH THE DVLA. I UNDERSTAND IT HAS NEVER BEEN USED ON THE ROAD.

DIESEL FUEL

THE INTERIOR HAS ALSO BEEN RESTORED. INCLUDING REUPHOLSTERED SEAT

THIS VEHICLE IS VERY RARE. UNDERSTOOD TO BE ONLY ONE OTHER. BELIEVED TO HAVE STARTED LIFE ON AN AIRCRAFT CARRIER HAULING TORPEDOS. IT IS OTHERWISE KNOWN AS A 'BOMB TUG' (SEE ARTICLE PHOTO)

SOME TYRES ARE MARKED W. D. (WAR DEPARTMENT). ALL IN GOOD CONDITION.

THE BATTERY BOX (FOR LIGHTS AND KLAXON) IS SPECIALLY SEALED TO AVOID STRAY SPARKING IN MUNITION ENVIRONMENT 

IT WEIGHS APPROXIMATELY 2. 5 TONS. IT IS APPROXIMATELY 6' TALL

THE SPOTLIGHT (ALSO SPECIALLY SEALED) WORKS AS DOES THE KLAXON

SUPPLIED WITH FOWLER ENGINE HANDBOOK

COMES WITH A FEW SPARES. INCLUDING TWO REAR TYRES

NEW WIRING. VINTAGE SWITCHES AND BAKELITE JUNCTION BOXES

A REPLACEMENT TOWING BRACKET NEEDS TO BE FITTED. THIS CAN BE DONE PRIOR TO COLLECTION

THE MATCHING TRAILER IS IN GOOD ORDER TOO AND HAS BEEN PAINTED TO MATCH THE TRACTOR.  IT HAS BEEN RECENTLY BEEN GREASED AND OILED.  

OVERALL LENGTH. TRACTOR AND TRAILER 20'

ALL SOLD AS SEEN. NO WARRANTY

COLLECT FROM HYDE. GREATER MANCHESTER
