Is that an Austin K6?

mea culpa, of course it isn't. K6 being a six wheeler: Sorry!

The lorry is a ex military Fordson from World War 2.

I am sure Forshaws from Westhoughton had these ex military lorries in the 50/60s and they were converted to tippers.They used to collect red shale from pit rucks that had been on fire in Hindley
