In 1922 Foden began producing the popular C-type steam lorry with it’s successful overtype double crank compound drive setup. It was not a revolutionary design, but carried improvements such as a better driving position which gave this version edge over it’s competitors. Phased out by the impending popularity of the diesel lorry, many have survived in preservation after serving long lives in various industries.
