of Manufacture


New to Charles H Roe of Crossgates, Leeds, bus and coach manufacturers. The tractor was used as a factory tug – taking chassis from the chassis park to the production line.

Sold in 2008 to a local dealer and then to a small holding in Garforth, the tractor was purchased by Classic Connections in 2009. Extensively restored and repainted the tractor was registered the first time in 2012 with the age related number ANW 705M.
