Morrison Electric Coal Lorry
Morrison Electric Coal Lorry
Date:1951
Registration:APV 94
Acquired by the Museum:1989
Current State:Restoration in progress
This vehicle was new to Ipswich Co-op in May 1951 as one of a pair of similar vehicles purchased at that time. This example is registered APV 94 and carried fleet number E92C, with the sister vehicle being registered APV 95. They saw use mainly in the eastern part of the town, working from the Co-op coal yard in Derby Road, and this example was the last to be withdrawn in 1983.

It remained in open storage until it was presented to the Museum in November 1989. Restoration recommenced towards the end of 2006, some work having been carried out previously.
