Commer Transporter

1959 Commer transporter seen at the 2004 Goodwood Revival

This is one of 170+ images of classic cars and aircraft that I took at the September 2004 Circuit Revival meeting at Goodwood, in Sussex.
[Index of Goodwood images]

The restored Commer below was photographed over the 3 day weekend at Goodwood. This blue Transporter is a transporter of the type often seen at motor racing meets and events in years gone by, this particular Commer transporter dating back to the 1959 era. Such cars would have appeared in transporter races at motorsport meetings, such as those at Goodwood.

You'll find many more restored vehicles similar to this Commer Transporter elsewhere on Classic Wheels, just have a look at the left hand menu.
