That looks rather like an old Foden, can anyone confirm this and any details on it too ?

Looks like it is a hydraulic crane too - with the Operator's Controls atop, and the Spreader Legs {Lift Jacks) and pads. "Safe Working Load 9 tons";
on the multi-sheaved Topping Lift - quite a lift.

Would love to see more details about this interesting old rig.

Foden S22-S23 Tropical Spaceship Sputnik FE6/22 Two Stroke 6x4 Heavy Recovery Vehicle - this is actually the marque, model and type of motor vehicle that this Foden S22-S23 Spaceship Sputnik actually is.
