GJensen 93292 172 County either
County 774 1988 mod.The last county who were imported to
I thought that County went bust in 1983? Did production
start again after this date?
If you go back about 6 or 7 pages you'll see a post with
'County revival 1983'....it briefly explains the
transitition between County Commercial Cars and the new
owner, Mr. David Gittins.
The County name then passed to Benson Group in '87 who
knocked out about 150 units up until the early '90s when
they stopped home market production. But they did produce a
handful of export models built round Ford 40 series up until
'95, which I think went to the Falklands.....wonder if
anyone has considered re-importing any of these? ;-)
Many thanks for your reply.
Do you know where the later County tractors were made. I
live in Hampshire and work close to the original address in
Fleet, but I cannot find any traces of the Benson group etc.
They re-located the operation to Knighton, right on the
border between Shropshire and Wales.
