Ford E83W Pickup
Ford E83W Pickup
Date:1954
Registration:CDX 691
Acquired by the Museum:1972
Current State:Restored to static condition
New to Ipswich Corporation Parks Department in 1954, and registered CDX 691, this E83W later passed to a private owner from whom the collection obtained it in mid 1972. This is a typical light pick-up truck developed from a car chassis but with a hand built body. This particular example would have been used in taking bedding plants from the Chantry nurseries to the various parks and gardens in the town as well as ferrying tools and materials.

It has been restored over a period of about 6 years, and was finished in 2000.
