DESCRIPTION

DETAILS

This is a ERF EC Olympic high roof hauling in Scotlee International Transport colours, one of the most eye-catching Scottish liveries around. ERF introduced the EC cab range back in 1993 but it was another year before the high-roofed Olympic version was introduced with various levels of trim, allowing operators to choose the desired level of living space within the cab.

Scotlee Transport was founded in 1977 by father and son, Joseph and James Leeson. They started with two trucks doing local work around the west of Scotland but the fleet eventually grew to 25 high spec 44-ton vehicles doing refrigeration and general cargo work all over Europe.

This truck is decorated in the bright Scotlee colours of red, white and pale blue, with an exceptionally high level of detail adorning the tractor unit in particular. The blue cab features a white roof and aerofoil, dark blue sun visor and black side mirrors. The roof sides carry the flags of several European nations above the windows on both sides. The interior is also black. Decoration includes a tartan ‘riband’ which runs all the way round the sides and front of the cab with the company name printed in gold. A red and white chevroned bumper includes the registration plate X916 JCS.

The trailer is equally decorative with the tartan band repeated diagonally across two opposite corners. The bold company lettering says it all and includes the fluttering Scottish Saltire on each side and across the rear doors. The model is rounded off with silver wheels with contrasting red wheel centres.
