76SD004 Oxford Diecast Shelvoke & Drewry Dustcart Coventry.

There are no flies on this one! A superb piece of new tooling adds a period dustcart to the Oxford range of commercials. Our research proved fascinating in unearthing the origins and vehicles of the Shelvoke and Drewry company who in their heyday manufactured innovative waste collection vehicles, the preferred choice of municipal authorities throughout the UK. Founded in 1922 by Harry Shelvoke and James Drewry, the Letchworth based company also manufactured fire engines, buses and forklift trucks. During WWII, like many manufacturers, they switched their output to the production of components for the war effort. Sadly Shelvoke and Drewry were taken over in the 1980s by an American company - Dempster Brothers, which subsequently suffered financial problems. Part of the company was integrated with Dennis, who had been Shelvoke and Drewrys main rival in times gone by. Dennis-Shelvoke continued for a while but ceased trading in 1992. The rear tips 90 degrees and also we supply an additional component which allows it to be posed tipping rubbish.
