Big Red Truck


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

This is Plaza Mayor, Valladolid, Spain 1964

 

I'd like to be able to identify the type of truck as it looks iconic.

 

Any ideas please?

Can you read the name on the grille? It's 4 letters and doesn't look like Ford.....Ebro seem to have used a badge. But you're right, it does look familiar with that window.

I found this...

which looks like a good match.  some interesting background on the model on that weblink also.

👌SAVA licence- built BMC FG then.

The full frame works for copyspace but I would be tempted to upload a crop without it as well.

 

Good idea.

 

There is also a SAVA S70

 

I can't see the difference between them 

 

Thanks very much for the help Spacecadet and GorillaDave

There is a lot of info in Spanish that might nail down the difference. I suspect it's just down to engine size- it's certainly not trim level from the looks of that cab interior!

A great thread title.. Loving these archive pix BTW.

I know the question has been answered but when I clicked on the image I immediately thought "Bedford".

 

Yes I was wrong.  Like Mark says I like these threads too.

That's good to know. I don't intend to add any of these vehicles to my caption or keywords but thought that you transport buffs might like a look.

 

It is almost looks like a toy set with model cars and bus. I can do crops/zooms if requested. Also 1964 Spain.

Nalaie Elphicke MP

Thanks

The title of this thread took me way back to my first year primary school when I could not for the life of me pronounce "The big red lorry went up the hill", we had to speak it in class and lorry always came out my mouth as lolly.......Thanks for the flash back.

Thanks for the positive comment. I am finding this very interesting and rewarding ( not yet in much of a financial sense) - perhaps 'worthwhile' is a better word.

 

I haven't done many of Spain but those have just gone live if you would like to have a look. 

 

There's quite a striking one of a woman in very 1960s dress walking through a saltworks - not sure who would ever want to use it or why but it is too good not to use.

 

Another one I really like is the one with a donkey and cart collecting water from a village fountain in amphora that could be from the Roman period. And that was 1964!

My favourite tongue-twister: "red lorry, yellow lorry, red lorry, yellow lorry...."

That's extraordinary- should have been on the cover of "Vogue".

She seems to be walking on air.

I assume these are going on Alamy- they definitely should be there. My archival well outperforms my usual stuff. Shame there's no more 1979.

BTW 1466IDM.jpg- MGB

1463IDM.jpg- Austin A40 I believe

Yes, that's what I meant - they are on Alamy now. Through the 'Images' link under my forum pseudonym. 78001 images
