I've seen this truck variously described as a Commer QX Mk IV, Commer C-Series Mk IV and Commer TS3 so apologies for any confusion. The TS3 designation refers to the two-stroke engine, which was a distinctive feature of these underfloor-engined Commers. Many were exported and preserved examples can be found in places as far apart as the Netherlands and New Zealand. This 1960 example is one of the less-common three-axle variations. I've finished it in WH Malcolm's traditional livery although I have no knowledge that the company ever operated such a truck (19-Jul-15).

Before the widespread adoption of semi-trailers (artics), the rigid eight-wheeler was King of the Roads and the ERF KV was one of the most stylish of the breed. Strictly speaking, the KV designation refers to the Kleer View cab rather than the specific model, but this is how ERFs of the period tended to be described. In reality, this particular KV flatbed (YMS 111) is preserved by an owner in Northumberland; it previously carried Pollocks livery, to whom it may have been new (11-Jul-14).

I love these old DAFs, which have so much character, and it has been a pleasure working with the source image kindly provided by Martin Vonk. This is the first version that I produced some time ago, but I've held it back to publish with other WH Malcolm images. I think that it suits the livery very well and would have been a good fit within the Malcolm fleet had DAF been more active in the UK market at the time (11-Jul-14).

From its roots in the family-owned business of WH Malcolm, the Renfrewshire-based Malcolm Group has seen tremendous growth and diversification in recent years. Like the contemporary Stobart Group, it has become an icon of the road transport industry, with a superbly presented fleet of vehicles and a rich heritage. I will be featuring some modern vehicles shortly, but meanwhile here is a type that almost certainly has never carried the traditional Malcolm livery. The Bristol HA was built exclusively for British Road Services and very few saw second lives with other operators. After some deliberation, I decided to ignore the unusually deep quarter windows in the livery application (12-Mar-14).

The S83 was a mid-seventies update of the successful Foden S80. Outwardly, the most obvious change was the replacement of the iconic kite badge and Foden script with the company name in large white capital letters, though the popular kite badge was retro-fitted on many S83s. The cab was better insulated and engine access via the 'one man tilt' cab improved. According to its 1977 adverts (the last year of manufacture), Foden could install Cummins, Gardner or Rolls-Royce diesels for immediate delivery. As with the accompanying S80 image, I cannot say whether WH Malcolm operated any S83s; but, again, it looks right in the company's traditional livery (23-Apr-14).
