The Grampian Transport Museum was formed in the early 1970's when a number of local enthusiasts became conscious of the fact that there was a very active interest in historic transport in the North East of Scotland. After consultations and fundraising, the current building was completed in September 1982 and the Museum in its present form opened in April 1983.

The Museum owns various historically important local vehicles, including the Craigievar Express, a steam powered tricycle built in 1895, the Sentinel Steam Waggon of 1914, the Albion Fire Engine, and the beautifully restored Cruden Bay Tram.

The beer bottle shaped car has a Daimler TL30 chassis and was produced for the Worthington Brewery. Two of these combined advertising and delivery vehicles were built for Worthington and both have survived in museum collections in working order.
