Corgi 1144; Scammell Handyman MKIII Chipperfields Crane Truck

 

The updated Chipperfields circus crane replaced what would have been (in the case of the old version) a wartime surplus US Army truck; the International 6x6 troop carrier chassis, with the much more modern Scammell Handyman cab, designed by Michelotti. The back-body is recognisable as the basis of the Holmes Wrecker normally seen with a Ford H Series cab up front. The jib is the same as the old International Circus Crane Truck with an all new winch arrangement.

All this adds up to a very elegant model and one which is very scarce these days and consequently demands high prices.
