Vanguard Pickup as a Breakdown Truck
Vanguard Pickup in use as a Breakdown Truck
Philip Gates has sent me this photograph of a breakdown truck on a Vanguard Pickup that he has found. It looks like the Truck itself is in need of some assistance as it has a large trolley jack underneath it. The registration plates (and the architecture) show the photo to be taken in Holland.
I am no Vanguard Pickup expert, I admit, and it is impossible to see the front of this car. The rear end however appears to be that of a Phase 1, but rear quarterlights have been fitted as per the Phase 2. Or perhaps these extra windows were an option on the Phase 1? I look forward to the flood of emails to put me right.
