CARRIMORE LOW LOADER

A new Corgi Major and a new use for  the Bedford S type cab unit or 'Big Bedford' this is the Low Loader as opposed to the Machinery Carrier which had detachable rear wheels on the trailer and a flat load-bed. Both were later re-released with the TK cab unit. The rear ramp folds down in two pieces to allow your heavy machinery to be loaded, not sure which Corgis were supposed to be carried on this truck, but not that many will fit.

The Carrimore Low-Loader was added to the range in April 1958 and stayed in production until 1963 when the tractor unit was replaced with the new Bedford TK tractor under model no.1132 and the winch was removed from the trailer. The cab can be yellow or red, the trailer is always blue, colour does not seem to affect value.

Mine is in OK condition. The cab is a little rough and the sprung grab is missing from the winch.
