Husky Guy Warrior Coal Truck

I don’t often come across Husky cars, so I was happy to find this Guy Warrior Coal Truck in a thrift store recently. Husky cars were made starting in 1964 and sold exclusively at Woolworths stores. By 1970, when the exclusive contract expired, the Husky line was rebranded as Corgi Junior.

Guy Motors was a manufacturer of cars, lorries and buses based in Wolverhampton, UK, from 1914 until 1982. The Warrior chassis was developed in the mid-1950s and was used on a variety of trucks and buses.

This Husky Guy Warrior Coal Truck would have originally included a molded plastic load of coal. The casting was also released as the #13 Guy Warrior Sand Truck, which was painted blue and included a load of sand.
