From Our Collection
Nottingham Co-operative Society 339 DTV
1958 Smiths 40cwt Milk Truck


Reg No:   339 DTV
Operator: Nottingham Co-operative Society
Chassis:  40 cwt Milk Truck

Most successful of the post-war twin rear wheeled b.e.r.v. chassis was that offered by Smiths. Popular with specialist coachwork such as mobile shops, there were some that received dairy dray bodywork. However, few dairies could justify trucks of this size for household milk deliveries, perhaps buying just one or two. Nottingham was an exception, receiving over 100 of them.

The body and cab of 339 DTV was constructed and fitted by the Nottingham Co-op at their Meadow Lane workshops. One of the last seven to remain active with the society, the truck was repainted into its original livery prior to delivery to Wythall in July 1992.
