Commer was a British manufacturer of commercial vehicles which existed from 1905 until 1979. Commer vehicles included car derived vans, light vans, medium to heavy commercial trucks, military vehicles and buses. The Commer brand was exported widely, with examples, albeit collectors' vehicles, still running far from the UK manufacturing base.
Commer made a range of military vehicles for WW2, with the range still in use in the 1980's. During the war, British humourist Frank Muir, serving in the army, reported a broken down vehicle over his radio with the words "The Commer has come to a full stop."
This most imposing Utility Lorry with huge 4.7 Litre, 6 cylinder petrol engine is attractively presented and reports to be in sound working order. This car was sourced by the South-East based movie studio from Manchester and was driven to their studios for use in the filming. Emblazoned with the livery of National Water Well Drilling Maintenance this righthand drive and UK registered truck is presented with an intentional patina though closer inspection shows that the vehicle has been well taken care of.
This vehicle with a claimed mileage of only 3,000 is sold with UK V5C registration certificate.
Buyers should note all import duties have been paid and it will be supplied with a certificate of authenticity by Marvel Studios confirming its involvement in the filming of Captain America - The First Avenger.
