One of only three pumping units built by HCB-Angus on the FGK 40 chassis. BAA 778C survives. All three have the same mechanical specification but have slightly different bodies.

My dad used to drive one of these. Except his was a milk float! Spent many an hour helping him on his milk round. I used to think the Austin milk float was really cool. But I can't believe how ancient it looks now!
