No idea!
First glance suggests a bit of Seddon, then maybe a bit of Guy, but the more you stare at it the wierder it looks, just noticed it's LHD too.

According to t'internet, it's a 1974 ERF 7MW ballast tractor. Doesn't really answer the question though.

Yes Pete that was a normal ERF cab although I am not sure of the model number without looking it up they were the base for a heavy haulage tractor from what I can gather and several went for export too.

The 7MW cab was a Motor Panels product and a tilt cab and was offered by ERF on their "European" tractor unit featuring a Cummins 335 hp engine.It was aimed at the continental market but some found their way into British fleets of long term ERF users.

Well done Tim! It makes you wonder why the UK manufacturers were not upping the game for the home market?
