Corgi issued an excellent model of this Diamond T about 10 years ago - see my photo 1063 on Marcel's transport models website.

I worked on this vehicle between 1975 - 1989, as previous comment.

I'm sure this Diamond T was made at Chasside Motor Co ltd, Enfield Middx. I was a mechanic there at that time. It had a Rolls Royce engine conversion. Chasside then become Dial Mech Holmes Wreckers.

I worked at Chaseside Motor Co Enfield at that time and we built a Diamond T for Glamorgan Fire Service. It had a Rolls Royce engine not the Hercules one. I have a couple of photos of this. Bill Jackson my boss sold Chaseside motors and started Dial Holmes and Holmes Wreckers. Please contacted me for more info, Brian Ruddock.
