This legendary name in Scottish haulage started in the 1890's with a simple horse and cart to transport freshly caught Herring from the Northern Scottish port of Fraserburgh to the local communities. When motorised transport became the norm, fish continued to be a major part of their work. Over their long history, Gibbs operated a wide variety of vehicles from manufacturers including Bedford and AEC. When they began to specialise in temperature controlled transport, they favoured Seddon Atkinson's like the fine truck modelled here. Later ERF's became the dominant marque before DAF and Scania made their presence felt. 2002 was the last year of trading for Gibbs of Fraserburgh but their livery is just as renowned 8 years on.
