Who knows the manufacturer?

1. June 2018 | Comments (1)

Spotted by a reader based in the USA, a ladder platform mounted on a Citroen HY chassis – for sale in the UK.

The platform is one of a type delivered in volume to France’s national utility EDF/EDG in the 1960s. This one dates from 1963 and is fully operational. It was renovated at some time to be used as an advertising vehicle for Mazda lighting products.

We initially thought that the platform was built by Riffaud, which made this type of platform for the fire service but are no longer sure of that. A scale model of this platform was built by Hachette during the 1960s, and restored models have appeared at specialist classic vehicle shows. We wonder is any of our readers might be able to identify this manufacturer?
