8x4 Load Carrier. Flagship of the Maudslay range, the rigid eight was originally named Mikado when it was first introduced in 1939. Construction was suspended around 1943 and resumed in 1948 with the AEC-engined Meritor. Its production life was cut short after only four years by ACV as it competed with the mighty AEC Mammoth Major, but in its day it was a popular choice for long distance trunking, often fitted with van bodywork and towing a drawbar trailer.
