1962 ERF 64GX LV/BL (Boalloy Cab)

Exceptionally rare very early ERF LV with the Boalloy manufactured cab. The LV cab was designed by Gerald Broadbent of Bowyer Bros (Boalloy) of Congleton, Cheshire. These were the initial cabs produced along with a similar looking design interpretation produced a few months later by Jennings of Sandbach. Cost of manufacture and the fact that Jennings became a part of ERF ensured that the Jennings design prevailed and the Boalloy was dropped after only approximately 50 cabs were completed.

 

This example still survives today although it has not been used on the road since the 1970's when the unavailability of the unique LV/B windscreen meant it's withdrawal from service when its original was smashed. It is reputed to be the oldest ERF LV in existence, and was displayed by ERF at the Cheshire Show in 1962..
