The trucks used by the Polish army were American built FWD HAR-1 1943.

This is a very rare WW2 truck used mainly by polish troops through a lend-lease agreement. The truck is an American built FWD HAR-1 which I have recently finished restoring. This is the only surviving truck left from the British lend- lease contract 1943, I have have owned it for the past 5 years. There are only 2 other surviving trucks, one in the USA and one in Australia.

Restored by Ben Rippingham 2008.This is how it looked before it’s restoration.

Ben says that spares are always a problem so drop him an email if you can help.
