Station Wagon

Description

Particularly large vehicle 4m long, with 1.4m front wheels and back wheels of 1.72m diameter. Tyres are 90mm wide. The thoroughbrace undercarriage is in good condition but has longitudinal elliptical springs front and rear in place of the thoroughbrace and cradle. Consequently the foot brake lever has had to be modified to fit around the springs

Colour

Body is faded blue-green colour with pale green lining; undercarriage is white.

History

The wagon was built by Cobb & Co.’s factory in Charleville for Carey & Sons of Plaingrove, Cheepie. It would be difficult to load with heavy goods around a property as it stands 1.4m high. The floor and sides of this vehicle were damaged in the 1981 fire.
