The Rowe Hillmaster manufactured in Cornwall was a rare beast indeed only about 120 being made but a fine lorry for all that.

Arthur Duckett bought two of them for his haulage business in the late 1950s and Alstone Princess was his second, fitted with the Perkins 6.354 engine, six-speed gearbox and fitted with a 16 ft wooden body capable of 10-11 ton loads.

Seen here on the fearsome Porlock Hill in Somerset it is about to be overtaken by an Austin Cambridge pick-up on a summer’s day in 1960.
