History

Purchased new in 1952 and was used as a farm truck in Inverell NSW up to 1983.
It was then stored in a shed until 1999 when the radiator was unblocked and the old girl fired up again.
from what I have been told very little has been done mechanically to the truck.
I am the fourth owner and I picked her up from a member of the Hunter truck club in 2010

Modifications

Rust was cut out and the roof was repaired with over 3500 hammer strikes to get the dints out from years of using the roof as storage.

Over 350 hours was put into the pre,panel work and paint.
