  13. Volvo For Sale

    Volvo FL6. Was a tractor unit but we removed the 5th wheel (will come with the lorry ) and added the 10ft box. It has an electric winch fitted and a automatic pin coupling. Nice little runner but needs tidying. It does not turn off with the key, not looked at why. 6 speed box and has a gross weight of 23 tons. Open to sensible offers.

  15. I am, very reluctantly, having to sell some of my collection to create more space. I am therefore offering the following items for sale at what I consider to be very fair prices and reflect what I actually paid for them. They are located near Romsey, Hampshire and are available on a collection basis only. The 8 pics below may not be in the correct order but are easily identified, apologies. Orton & Spooner Ark Horse. Complete with all the chrome trims and with an absolute known provenance as coming from A117 Tucker's Ark that travelled mainly in Yorkshire. I have restored the left side to it's original colour scheme and left the right side unrestored. The seat has been recovered. It is completely sound with no rot. 42" X 39" X 10". £275. Bensons Double Sided Dropper. This was one of a set of 3 boards that hung across the main entrance to Bensons Ark A67. The reverse carries a highly decorative floral pattern. The other 2 boards reading Electric, Thriller, are known to exist but I know not where. Numerous photos can be found on line showing the boards. Totally unrestored and probably unique. 60" X 16". Slightly curved to reflect the radius of the ride. £340. Bensons Twist Car seatpanel. A metal panel that was attached to the back of a Bensons twist car. Fully restored to original colours. 42" x 20". £125. Roll - up Board complete with correct size rubber balls. Restored apart from the decorative floral pattern in the centre which is in perfect condition. Sound with no rot. A written inscription on the reverse reads :- G. Miller, Fairground, Fakenham, Norfolk. This game creates much amusement at parties. 54" x 18" . £ 130. Rounding Board from a Juvenile ride. Fair unknown but possibly from the Derby area. Fully restored to it's original colours and design. 56" x 10" £100. Stall Gag Board Restored, fair unknown. 24" x 20". £60 Decorative carved Bracket. Unrestored. I was told when I bought it many years ago it was from a dodgem track paybox at Rhyl but this is unconfirmed. 16" x 8" x 9". £40 I can provide far more information, and photos, as necessary on all items to serious enquiries. My total asking price for these 7 items is £1,070 but, start your own collection, I'll take £950 for all 7 if anyone is interested ! If anyone is seriously interested in more than I item I will consider reasonable offers but I believe I have priced these pieces at very realistic levels given their provenance / condition. My mobile number is 07870 390066 Andy
  16. Quoted By Member

    Hi Wood1, The post you were quoted in was deleted after it was posted, so you would have got a notification saying you had been quoted when the post was made, but after it was deleted you wouldn't have been able to find it! The reason it was deleted as it was part of a discussion on an entry in the Transport List, and as per forum rules we don't allow discussions on list entries, just the main information and a photo or two. I hope this helps
  17. A member recently quoted me in a transport topic ,but I cannot find it after extensive searching.
  18. Happy 40th Birthday Mark hope you had agreat day

    Very sad to hear Mick has lost his battle. Had many laughs over the years, will be missed on the fairground scene. I happier times - 1992 sat with the late John Walter Shaw on the steps of his waltzer at Kings Lynn.
