Volvo these put our British trucks to shame, ie Atkinson.
More power, more comfort easier for the driver. It's like driving a car. Still looks good and this is 1972.

Louis Reece was a major grower and supplier of fruit and
vegetables,from Horsmonden in Kent,(The Garden Of England).
They acquired Owen Owen,Wigans largest wholesale fruit and
vegetable company in the 60s, and later became Glass Glover,
a major supplier to the big supermarket chains. Geographically, The large warehouse and fruit packing operation at Worthington Way, Marus Bridge was ideally placed for onward distribution to all parts of the UK,
Next to the M6, close to the M62,The Borough of Wigan is
very well located.
