The Wrigley truck was a small 3 wheeled works truck built by Wessex Industries (Poole) Ltd.
The trucks were powered by a single cylinder Villiers or Petter engine driving the front wheel. Steering is by rotating the complete engine and drive wheel assembly.
Several variations were built
These were used in market gardens and factories for moving products and materials about. Some have being registered for road use.
A number of these have been restored and can be seen at classic machinery rallies around the UK.
