Howdy all. We have just purchased this old girl to restore and use as our workshop truck and to advertise.
Has the original rebuilt flathead V8, 4 speed crash box, 2 speed diff.
95% rust free, solid Jarrah tray.
Very, very solid honest old truck.
Will be a full resto, black and orange colour scheme to match our logo, and of course sign written 'High Quality Crash Repairs'.
Given our crazy constant workload, will take some time but will update as we progress.

You see lots of these put on F truck chassis. Would be a good old truck to get rid of the old driveline and put in something more modern in.

Will definitely be keeping the flathead, but will probably upgrade the gearbox so we don't have to double clutch it.
