JFJ 457 is actually a Scammel Showtrac, but prior to preservation was clearly dramatically altered. Was this vehicle ever in service with this lettering, was the preservationist called Jones, or is something else afoot?

Well - it certainly was never called the Showman in Whitelegg's ownership and those front wings are from a Scammell Highwayman.  Anyway - I believed that this may have been purchased by a preservationist called Mr C.Jones at some point in it's preserved life.  It was restored as a Showtrac in the 2010's by Mr R. Richards of Redruth and is now owned by Kevin Gamlen.
