Austin 20hp Breakdown Truck

On Display

Formerly a Landaulette used for taxi and private work in Haywards Heath, Sussex, this exhibit was purchased by the current owner's father in 1938. Proprietor of Quick's Garage, Handcross, Sussex, he converted it to a breakdown truck, using a homemade crane previously fitted to Dodge and Rolls–Royce cars. The truck was in constant use during the war years and worked into the 1950s, before being retired.

Martin Quick restored his father's 20hp truck in 1967, and rallied it for the next 10 years, before another period of retirement. It is now shown as part of Tucker's Garage, hauling breakdowns in the late 1930s.
