Ransomes Lorry 4
Date:1914
Registration:PV 6736
Acquired by the Museum:1966
Current State:Dismantled
Note: Not Currently on display
Built in 1915 as the fourth prototype Ransomes lorry, this differs from DX 1664 in the fact that the motors are mounted on the chassis and drive the rear wheels by use of chains, it also retains its tipping gear. It was used as a demonstrator and works vehicle until it was registered PV 6736 in 1940 for use on public roads. It remained as a works vehicle until being withdrawn in 1965 and presented to the collection by RS&J in 1966.

This vehicle is currently in the process of being reassembled after being stripped for restoration.
