The Scammell Showtrac was one of the few purpose made vehicles built for travelling showmen. Working with Sydney Harrison, Scammell Motors of Watford first began to develop the prototype just after the Second World War. In all eighteen were built and supplied to showmen. Most were fitted with the stylish coach-built bodies, housing the dynamo and winch, but each had its own character.

Today all but one of these vehicles survives, but the purpose of this book is to show them all at work, when they hauled the loads, generated for the rides and manoeuvred the trucks on the grounds.
