Argyle » Christina

The Christina was one of two models offered. It was named after the wife of the truck's designer. The company assembled its own chassis, but otherwise utilized certain proprietary units available within the automotive industry. These include Perkins 6.354 diesel engines and modified versions of the current all-steel cab unit by Motor Panels of Coventry. Two wheelbase lengths were available. There were also drawings of 24 ton and 32 ton models named after two daughters, but no real trucks were made. Totally were produced only 24 or 51 Argyle Christina trucks, according to different sources.

    The company was owned by William Moffat (the designer) he started a business re-conditioning ex military engines, gearboxes & axles after WW2. some models were produced with a glassfibre cab! I worked for him in the early/mid 80's and whilst moving premises for "Argyle Diesel Electric" he decided to skip all remaining moulds, drawings etc. he still thought his design was of merit, but reality told him his dream was over.
