Eastern Counties vehicles the webmaster wishes had been saved . . .

Here you will find an illustrated list of 38 Eastern Counties Tilling era vehicles which I feel should definitely have been saved for preservation.  Sadly, none of these fine machines have survived and regretfully, I was neither old nor wealthy enough to have been instrumental in saving any of them from the cutter's torch...

The vehicles are listed in chronological order of their registration date.

Photograph copyrights lie with Maurice Doggett, Robert Mack and R H G Simpson. 

Further details of each vehicle will be added in due course.
