Lot 45: AEC Mandator Mk V refuelling tanker

Classics, Charterhouse (21 July 2013)

This Royal Navy refuelling tanker has had two private owners since being decommissioned from the Royal Navy. It is believed that the tanker saw service at RNAS Yeovilton, but further research will be necessary to verify this. One of the first batch of 13 commissioned by the Royal Navy, it is understood to be the only one currently in a road worthy condition. The current owner embarked on a full restoration between 2002 and 2008, rebuilding the cab, brakes, axles, checking over the engine, replacing the original gearbox with a six speed version which allows a 40 mph cruising speed, against the original 28 mph, a full respray in the correct RN yellow livery and numerous other components in the restoration. During the current ownership the vendor has used the tanker to attend local shows, and the odometer reading of 23,000 miles is believed to be correct, which equates to approximately 5,800 working hours. This rare commercial in show condition would grace any collection and is ready to continue its show duties. V5C, MOT to August 2013, tax exempt, taxed
