Scammell Scarab with Bulk Grain Trailer
Scammell Scarab with Bulk Grain Trailer
Date:1965
Registration:BPV 248C
Acquired by the Museum:1976
Current State:As acquired, unrestored
This vehicle, which is registered BPV 248C, was new to the Ipswich fleet of R&W Paul in 1965. It was transferred to the Pauls and Sanders fleet in 1972, but its operational life was cut fairly short by revised vehicle legislation, which saw the rapid demise of this once popular vehicle format. The bulk grain trailer is an unusual variation to the normal flat bed trailer usually hauled by the Scarabs. It was used to haul barley to the various Ipswich maltings.

The vehicle was donated to the Museum by 1976.
