Foden Export Vehicles
Home > Foden Export Vehicles
Wobbe Reitsma
After 1945 many countries needed new
vehicles in order to replace those
that had been destroyed or worn out in
the war and so British factories were
offered incentives to produce and
export lorries. Foden were one such
company to take advantage of the
opportunities available and in the
1950s, had agents in almost every West
European country. In the 1970s when
the European market had declined, the
Middle East, Australia and South
Africa markets rose to prominence and
from the 1980s onwards, New Zealand
became the primary destination for the
marque. By the time production finally
ceased in 2006, they had sold vehicles
all over the world. The vehicles
produced for export differed greatly
from the designs used in Britain. In
many countries the gross weights of
vehicles exceeded the British values
significantly, so the majority of
Foden export vehicles had much
stronger chassis, gearboxes, axles,
suspensions and more powerful engines
than their British counterparts. Many
also had tropical double roofs to keep
the heat out and sleeper cabs, long
before they became common in the
UK.This comprehensive book detailing
the lorries that Foden exported around
the world, follows on from the
publication of the author's first book
about the Fodens produced and used
within the UK (Foden Special
Vehicles). It includes 364 fascinating
photographs, many of which have never
been previously published and will be
of interest to all Foden fans and
transport enthusiasts in general.
