British commercial vehicle manufacturers played a prime role in boosting Britain's economy during the 1960s, especially as many vehicles were exported worldwide. British lorries were, therefore, considered the workhorses of the world, performing a wide range of duties from heavy haulage to general goods delivery.
This highly visual study of British lorries of the 1960s captures in 120 illustrations this often understated but very necessary work, day and night, 365 days a year. The images, many contemporary colour and black and white, include some delightful publicity items in addition to covering the heritage and preservation scenes. The comprehensive text reveals much about the marques that were household names, along with information about Britain's road haulage and commercial vehicle industries.
This book will rekindle many memories and serve as a reminder of the important role that British commercial vehicles played during the 1960s.
