1930's 7Ton Truck Recovery Breakdown (N Gauge / Scale) 1:148 scale.
The AEC Matador truck had continued production for over 40 years, originally adapted by the British Army, many of these trucks found themselves shipped worldwide. Post-war, the Matador was found in civilian use as a recovery truck, a showman's vehicle, and general contractor use. It was also useful for forestry work because of its good off-road performance. When used as a bus fleet recovery truck, many were fitted with lifting jibs for suspended towing and re-bodied with semi-enclosed bodies, often based on bodywork from scrapped buses.
