CORGI - SCAMMEL CONTRACTOR - CROUCHES

Between 1964 and 1983 Scammell's flagship heavy haulage tractor was the Contractor, with a 6 cylinder Cummins 350 or 430 hp diesel engine driving a 6x4 wheel arrangement. The Contractor was designed for several functions including military and commercial use such as towing semi trailers and tow bar trailers, offering a total gross train weight of 240 tons. Contractors were often fitted with winches as in the case of this striking orange liveried Crouch's of Kibworth model. Crouches Car and Commercial Recovery have been in the recovery business since 1948, based in the Midlands at two depots, Kibworth near Market Harborough and Lutterworth just off the M1 motorway. Crouch's have a varied. shop here
