Footnotes

  • The rugged, no-nonsense Karrier truck originated in 1907, when Clayton & Company (Huddersfield) Limited produced a 30cwt goods vehicle with a powerful engine, designed to tackle Yorkshire hills and offer large load space within a compact overall short length. It was powered by a twin-cylinder engine driving the rear wheels by chain. The first year's production of these "Karrier" lorries was just 15 vehicles, but by 1910 output had risen to 46 vehicles, produced in two types, the cab-over-engine A60 and the normal control B60. Both were rated at 3 tons ("including body"), though the Karrier catalogue showed an illustration of an A60 flatbed truck carrying an impressively large load of 13 sizeable bales piled three rows high that must have comfortably exceeded that figure!

    In running order, this well-presented cab-over-engine A60 lorry is from that year and has been officially dated as 1910 by the Veteran Car Club. Power is provided by a 5734cc four-cylinder engine driving the rear wheels by twin side chains; the three-speed gearbox offered ratios equivalent to 3, 6.5 and 12mph plus reverse. The patent metal-to-metal clutch was claimed to "reduce to a minimum the excessive shocks both to engine and gearbox caused by too quick engagement, so assisting towards long life to vehicle together with smoother running."

    Believed to have originally been used for carrying china clay in Cornwall, around 1920 this Karrier was bought by Walter Winchester, a coal and corn merchant from Grayshott, Hampshire, who registered it with Hampshire County Council. It was little used by Winchester, who stored it in a shed at his yard, along with a 1914 Vulcan van and 1927 Dennis. They were sold in 1954 to Fred Ray, a car breaker in Liphook, Hampshire, who immediately sold all three to Jack Sparshatt of Portsmouth, who was the first person in this country to collect early commercial vehicles privately – they were the first vehicles in his collection. The Karrier was sold when the Sparshatt collection was dispersed in 1973. It was subsequently bought by Michael Banfield from W. Smith of Hazelbourne Farm, Chobham, Surrey, for £2000.

    It is finished in grey with red chassis and wheels, and is fitted with a folding hood over the driver's impressively elevated cab.
    The robustness of the Karrier design is shown by the fact that during the First World War, Clayton & Company had provided around 2000 chassis that served as lorries during the conflict.
