Very sad day today , time for a tractor unit upgrade so I sold my old beast of Foden which I have run for over fifteen years . Its been off the road a while now, I was going to restore it and take it to shows but dont seem to get the time for toys these days.I got back virtually all it cost me , how bad can that be for a truck that had a very hard life, covered 1.8 million miles and never had a penny spent on it other than service items, a clutch and tyres? Whatever fills its boots has a lot to live up to.

Not touched any perkins or cat engines really, just assumed it’d be the cummins L10 engine. Served you well though, be very few newer motors in this world that would reach 1.8 million mls without terminal issues

Anyone spending 50 grand on a truck surely isn’t going to work with it anyway meaning towing limits, vat reclaim etc all unimportant. 
The working man would just have a van, work type truck and unimog for the same money emoji3.png

Damn right, 50k gets a lot of toys

have you seen the price of all the new pickup trucks now. They are all getting up there money wise. £35-40 k seems to be a regular thing. 

Yank trucks can be had for similar money ( nearly new 2017 or so) but out gun it in every department ( including size unfortunately).

But with the yank u can get a 5.7 hemi included in that which is a toy in itself! guess it depends on what you class as a toy

If that was a double drive unit I would have grabbed it :)
