The Guy Wolf was a chassis which was launched in 1933. It became an extremely successful, long-lived design, appearing in many different forms thanks to the large variety of bodies that were fitted to it.
This success and popularity helped the chassis as it continued in production until the late 1950s (apart from a break during the war years). Over the years many improvements were made as technology changed. Later models included a version powered by a Perkins diesel engine.
The Wolf would have been a familiar sight in many countries thanks to the company's excellent reputation abroad, and the successful export department.
The Wolf was fitted with a Guy 3308cc four-cylinder OHV engine which produced 50bhp. The engine was designed with a detachable head. A four-speed gearbox was fitted along with a single dry-plate clutch. Cooling of the engine was via a large capacity cast aluminium radiator with detachable bottom and top tanks. The radiator was mounted on rubber bushes.
Semi-elliptic leaf-springs were fitted at the front and rear. The front springs were anchored at the rear and shackled at the front. Rear springs were underslung.Hydraulic four-wheel brakes with independent adjustment for each wheel were fitted. They had a 14" diameter and fitted on all four wheels.
The Wolf had a 12 volt electric starter with a 12 volt 5 lamp lighting set. The Wolf was fitted with a 12 volt 63 amp-hour battery. A 16 gallon fuel tank was fitted behind the running board.
