Karrier Bantam ex Co Durham.

I think this is YPT69 (or 169) I saw it at Preston Park back in 1984, and haven't seen it since! Is this still around?

could this be YPT 695 - I have just seen it in Empress Avenue London E11 - looking in reasonable condition though parked in the open. I will post a picture shortly.

I am looking for a Commer Karrier Gamecock from around 1956. I think the registration is ypt 695. It was based in Langley park Durham. It was present at my grandparents wedding and I would love to arrange it to come to their party for their 50th anniversary. Does anyone have any information on this model?

Hi Amy, This machine appears elsewhere on the site, and was photographed in London I believe, fairly recently. It appeared to be for sale. If you go to the Manufacturers heading on the toolbar above, and look under Karrier you'll find it there. I don't know the vehicles current status.

Hi Amy, I now own YPT695 &am restoring her in Suffolk. I would like to find out some history of the engine if you could help. Best Regards Peter Scott.
