SOLD; Show winning Atlas 10/12 cwt, Shell motor oil inspired pickup.

EQUIPMENT
Wing mirrors, Twin wiper blades, Heater, Slide side windows, Fold down rear panel, Choke, Pull start, Shell livery, Dual Shell motor oil barrels.

EXTERIOR
This Shell motor oil inspired Standard Atlas pickup looks every bit the part as a historic utility vehicle, fit for any pitlane or vintage garage. Finished in a solid battleship grey the body and paint are in absolutely excellent condition along with the red decal sticker set that adorns the various panels and adds good contrast to the solid paintwork. Chrome work remains flawless with lights and lens free from cracks or moisture.

The 10/12 cwt pickup bed is vast. A fitted rubber mat protects the metal floor while two red Shell oil barrels add character and fit with its theme. The rear tailgate folds down neatly allowing ease of access.

INTERIOR
The driving cab of the Atlas is sparse but provides comfortable seating. Swing open the hinged door and the classic car smell is immediately prominent, a mix of vinyl, metal and mechanics. The gear level springs forward from the rear bulk head in unusual fashion providing further charm and character to this 1959 work horse.

The seats and headlining present in immaculate condition along with the rest of the cabin. The speedo sits in the middle of the dash surrounded by some pull buttons and optimistically showing a theoretical top speed of 80 mph.

ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Nestled into the centre of the cab and between the driver and passenger seat is the engine. Designed and placed in such a position to maximise the possible carrying load of the pickup as well as providing ample space in the cabin, Its position leads to some quirky traits, one being the location of the ignition key and gear shift lever.

The engine is started by sprung loaded pull handle by the ignition key along with the choke. Servicing and maintenance is made far easier with any problems fixed without the driver even having to leave their seat!

WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
Cream steel wheels match the front grille and are topped with chrome caps. All four wheels nestled into the body and wrapped in Kumho tyres with excellent tread.

HISTORY FILE

Fully restored in 1997 and refurbished again more recently this multi award winning pickup is in immaculate condition proudly wearing the shell branding. The history file contains original brochures, servicing manuals and a variety of MOTs along with historic photos of the vehicle in past liveries, medals and trophies.
