Seller's notes: Fitted with a Commer "TS3" Diesel Engine, 6 Speed gearbox and power assisted steering.4 Wheel drive with low range.Tipping back, single hydralic ram powered off pump on gearbox side.Very large winch mounted in rear, run from transfer box pto.The engine is a two-stroke opposed-piston with "Roots" blower,very powerful and very loud. Usually fitted to much larger commer trucks of the period.Now fitted with "Black Light" headlight covers (pic.6)These were developed for night use before image intensifiers. The driver had to wear a set of infared viewers. (These are not with the truck, but do come up on ebay sometimes.)The main fuel tank is sound but needs a good cleanout. The pump is now connected direct to one of the jerry-cans mounted in the side racks.(always gave me enough range.)New parts fitted :- Starter, battery, brake and clutch master cylinders, fuel lift pump,headlights,side lights, and indicators.New seals for steering-ram and injectors overhauled.
Sale type: Fixed price listing

Length 20' 6"    Width 7' 6"   Height 8'  Weight 4153 kg unladen


Purchased from a farm auction in 2008 and restored by present owner.
Much rallied at local shows since 2010. but very little used much this year.

Tipping mechanism works fine but I never got round to fixing the brake on the winch. It will pull in and let out.
There is a removable frame and canvas cover for the load area. (pic 3)

Comes with workshop manual. parts list and driver's handbook. and a file of research on other examples. No other military Q4 tippers are remaining (As far as I know. ) Plenty of ex-fire service Q4s are about some converted to look like army general purpose trucks.

Please contact me with any sensible questions or to view prior to bidding. 01323 842150.


The truck is in Hailsham Sussex. A deposit of £50 payable with in 24hrs of sale. and full payment on collection.
 (No I won't deliver it. especially not overseas !)
