Bedford Pullmore car transporter

Recommended Posts

I must admit to knowing very little about commercial lorries.  I saw a Dinky model of a Bedford Pullmore car transporter and it has me wondering, did such a vehicle combination exist?  Does anyone here know of the dimensions and any links to views of the real thing?

 

cheers,
Mike

As far as I can ascertain it never existed in that form and Dinky Toys introduced it to compete with the highly successful Corgi Bedford Carrimore car transporter.  I can't find conclusive proof of this but the evidence points that way and I can find no mention at all of Bedford or any independent trailer builder building a "Pullmore".

I think that I may have eventually found an actual transporter that is similar to the dinky model.

Regards Pullmore & Carrimore both were companies that appear to have been based in the same general area of London their full names are so similar could they be one & the same
