OverviewThe Yak Yoeman was manufactured in the 1970's by Manchester Garages, Manchester.
The vehicle was based on a powder-coated tubular chassis with blow-moulded aluminium side panels and a canvass tilt.
Power came from a 1300cc low compression Ford Kent engine. A transfer box made especially for the vehicle by Fairy Engineering gave eight forward gears, each with full syncromesh, and two reverse gears. Additionally, the same transfer box had two power take-offs, one was connected to a winch and steel hawser.
Almost all vehicles were fitted with sand tyres and sold to the Middle East, in left hand drive form.
In about 1971, production passed to The Northern Motor Company, Stamford Road Mossley, Lancs. A few right hand drive vehicles were sold by them to buyers in the UK, and they developed a new prototype Yak Yeoman with a Rover power plant. It is not known whether any of these went into production.
