Default Levy sales material

Just turned up this interesting old advertising from Levy Auto parts Toronto.

Bob, would it be possible to have a close-up of the 3 ton CMP image? Thank you,

ED

At first glance, the "Van Bodies" (that look like machinery bodies) at $425 seem overpriced compared to the complete CMP that seems to have a similar body at a cost of $999 for both truck and body. On the other hand, if you want the body for use as a chicken coop the truck is just so much scrap steel and you would be better off buying 2 bodies for less than the cost of the truck. I guess it just depends on perspective.

Does anybody know what large "cannon" that trailer is for? The tires and hitch imply commonwealth design, but having seen a good cross selection of artillery, I don't think I have seen these.

So here are a few closer ups..I have included the tandem axle trailer, it appears to be military underneath with british pattern wheels and rims, perhaps a modified gun carriage?

Quad Polsten, I’d say.

Ah, I see. The trailer is large, not the cannon(s).

It looks like there was a sale on pale yellow paint somewhere near that yard.

Wikipedia confirms my suspicions https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swords...hshares_Museum The photo above appears in the Wiki article. The nearest likely source for the yellow paint is Perkins Home Building Center in North Gower.
