That valiant heavy duty Scammell Showtrac has been a favoured and reliable workhorse amongst showmen for many years. Here we see it as used by the famous West Country showman family Anderton & Rowland, proudly sporting the name ‘John Bull’ on the sides of the bonnet. Resplendent in the A & R signature colour scheme of dark red with contrasting bright red to wheels, mudguards, fuel tank and towbars, our model is registered JYA 962. The Anderton & Rowland signage, which includes an indication of their roots in Bristol and Plymouth, is printed in gold with a delicate green dropped shadow.
As the ‘John Bull’ name suggests, we are certain none of the A & R troupe would get stuck in the mud with this powerful Showtrac pulling them.
