STANDING SIDE BY SIDE - GRIFFIN MEETS 143 ICON

Manningtree based haulier Ticks Haulage purchased an R143 4x2 R450 Topline Streamline 21 years ago from TruckEast, known as Ro-Trucks then.

With a full service history and over three million kilometres on the clock - it’s still going strong. This vintage Scania has become an iconic part of the Ticks Haulage fleet. Owners Alistair Stewart and business partner Helen Steward restored it and made assurances it would never be sold.

The much younger sibling and latest truck on the Ticks Haulage fleet is an R520 Topline Griffin in a striking silver colour. The 16 litre V8 engine delivers magnificent power and is already performing at an average of 9.6mpg.
