Footnotes

  • Once the largest commercial vehicle company in the British Empire, Albion was established in 1899 in Scotstoun, Glasgow by Arrol-Johnston émigrés T Blackwood Murray and Norman Fulton. The firm manufactured cars to begin with, concentrating on its commercial vehicle business from the end of 1913. Albion’s motto ‘Sure As The Sunrise’, which reflected its reputation for dependability, inspired the distinctive design that featured on the radiator and badges of its many models. The firm introduced a number of what would turn out to be long-lived models in the 1920s, which although left behind somewhat by the passage of time were nevertheless preferred by some operators on account of their fundamental soundness. After its acquisition by Leyland in 1951, Albion’s independence gradually diminished and the range of models offered was slashed to just two: the Clydesdale truck and Viking bus. A management buy-out in the early 1990s took Albion Automotive, by this time a manufacturer of axles only, back into Scottish ownership. The firm was acquired by the American Axle & Manufacturing Company in 1998. Today, the Biggar Albion Foundation, based in Lanarkshire, Scotland looks after The Albion Club and The Albion Archive.
    Owned by one of the historic commercial vehicle movement’s most respected restorer/enthusiasts, this Albion Clansman has the 3.2-litre four-cylinder petrol engine and five-speed gearbox. The vehicle was restored over a nine-month period, eleven new tyres being fitted, and the post-rebuild mileage is now approaching 16,000. Described as a very good starter and runner, it has taken part in numerous events, including the Trans-Pennine Run and Dumfries Show this year. Road tax and MoT exempt, the vehicle is offered with Swansea V5 registration document.
