A sense of nostalgia ascended on seeing this beautifully restored Morris FFK 7-tonne BMC Diesel 4×2 rigid truck on the Howard Tenens Logistics stand at the Multimodal exhibition at the NEC, Birmingham this week.
Our family business operated a similar version along with its sister model badged as an Austin, and both built by Morris Commercials from the ealy-60s. They were powered by a BMC 5.1 litre 6-cylinder diesel.
Situated nearby was another truck that was part of the family business fleet in the previous decade. This Bedford truck from 1956 undertook daily deliveries of coal around the Paisley region of Scotland for the WH Malcolm company, now known as the Malcolm Group, from its Brookfield family home. JS
