*Beautiful Albion flatbed lorry
*Rare model
*Previously restored


Founded in 1899, Albion Motors was a Scottish automobile manufacturer that also specialised in commercial vehicles. Sadly the company and was sold under British Leyland, but it is notable for producing iconic vehicles such as the Albion Ventura double decker bus. In production from 1939 until 1954, the Albion FT3 was in fact the company's longest lived model, and was originally powered by six-cylinder petrol engines. However, out of practicality and rising fuel prices many were later converted to diesel. This 1939 Albion FT3 is a wonderful early example that was previously restored in 1986. It is finished in a beautiful blue and red contrasting colour scheme that is painted to match the vendor's father's transport company. The colours really help to make the vehicle stand out. This example comes with little history, but does come with original wooden crates on the rear bed. The vehicle runs and drives well, and overall is in a presentable condition. The running gear and suspension are also in good condition. There is still an active Albion owners club for a new owner to join if desired, with many rallies held each year. This is a beautiful vehicle that is now increasingly hard to come by.
