Historic removals truck joins The Cheshire Run

Jul 14, 2015
John Mason International’s Maintenance Manager Pat Reilly and his daughter Victoria recently took the company’s vintage truck on The Cheshire Run: a 90-mile classic commercial vehicle event held every April.
This year there were 82 historic trucks, the oldest being a 1930 Ford Pick Up truck. 

The run started in Lymm and took a scenic route through Cheshire, taking in Delamere Forest and ending in Warrington in the north west of the county. 

Pat said, “It was a great day for the local community, there were many interesting vehicles present including historic fire engines and unique commercial vehicles.”

The John Mason vehicle is a 1960s Leyland Comet, that was previously used as a removal vehicle by the company before being converted to a break-down truck. It was then loaned to a British transport museum and later entrusted to enthusiast care before being re-acquired by John Mason International.

The historic truck is displayed at numerous transport shows and fairs throughout the year.
