Artist's Description

THIS PAINTING IN OILS ON A 18″×24″ CANVAS BOARD IS FOR SALE AT £999. E-MAIL mike@transportartist.co.uk FOR DETAILS.

In the immediate post WW II era the British manufacturing industry’s main priority was the export market to help with the balance of payments crisis resulting from the cost of liberating Europe from the Third Reich. Long waiting lists for new vehicles for domestic hauliers meant that ex-WD vehicles like this 1943 Leyland Hippo were an attractive alternative. Here, the ever resourceful Oliver Hart has added a second steering axle to make a maximum capacity eight-wheel tipper.
