Nice truck. I used to do work for the foden family near me in Cheshire. I think they said one of the foden brothers owns erf trucks.

Brilliant photo. They had a unique sound all of their own, in an era of ERF, Atkinson, Thames Trader, Albion, Commer, AEC, Leyland etc.

Supercharged diesel, eh! - so no points to set or valve clearances to worry about.

 

Maintenance must be a doddle then

Cracking truck. My Dad drove trucks all his working life; starting off with flat-bed Thames Traders hauling milk in churns, then Mammoth Majors and finally ERF artics when the company he worked for bought artics. I spent many a happy hour travelling the length and breadth of the country with him as a young lad, and can many a time remember sitting on the engine cover steering (just holding the steering wheel actually) the Mammoth Major while he lit a smoke as it crawled it's way up out of Brough and over Stainmore at walking speed. Nice pic.
