Oxford 76AEC014 1:76 Southdown AEC Matador Wrecker
The AEC Matador Wrecker, used extensively as a WWII workhorse, found its way into the ownership of many commercial operators in civilian life. Southdown may have used the vehicle for 'rescuing' broken down buses and coaches from their fleet. Decorated here in the characteristic green and cream of this popular south coast company, the truck is registered JNG 641 and also features the red and white trade plate 340 PX and 'towing' plate. The flatbed planking is painted brown, housing the crane and towing hook, all ready for action.
