It was in 1973 that Leyland introduced their answer to the might of Scandinavia with the powerful Marathon. But it was under- developed in the engine department and gained a poor reputation. The mark II pictured here was fitted with alternative engines of Rolls-Royce or Cummings manufacture and despite other problems are remembered with great affection.
Here a Leyland Marathon with a low-loader trailer at a ‘Black Country’ factory is about to load machinery from a redundant factory in the 1980s when much of which made Britain great was thrown away.
A painting like this of your favourite vehicle, British or American, in oils on canvas or board would cost about £1500.
