More information on this Commer:
Back in 1996 this old Commer lorry could be seen parked up behind a farm near Poynton in Cheshire. I think it was available for £150 and it did vanish a few months later - did it make it into preservation or was this former tree services lorry scrapped? The extra bonnet grilles and wide wings suggest this Commer was ex-military.
This section of oldclassiccar is full of photographs showing a mix of unrestored, derelict, abandoned, and scrapped old cars. Some cars are with enthusiasts awaiting restoration, others are dumped or seen in breakers yards. I don't have any more information on the classic Commer above, so all news regarding what happened to it, or the rescue of this particular Lorry would be much appreciated.
All the photos, including this picture of an old Commer Lorry, are shown as a reminder of how old cars go to look once past their first flush of youth. Some of the scrapyards in this archive no longer exist, others perhaps survive but don't allow you to walk around them. And those that you can still get in probably don't have many classics in them any more. For more photos like this one of the Lorry, and similar old Commers, please visit the main scrapyard & scrap cars image page.
