Thanks for the welcome, I am a Queenslander, I am in Brisbane metro area. This old girl was sold new out of Rocklea, originally white. was driven a few years back, but has since gone tight from sitting too long. the dealer where I worked sold quite a few of the 4070's and also the Transtar 400's and F1800D's
You Bet, one was sold to a local saw milling company with the six speed Allison Auto and had a four speed air shift joey box retrofitted. The driver was close to retirement and could not manage the standard RTO913 Roadranger .It was used to haul logs from the bush to the sawmill,Unfortunately, on a few occasions, on a heavy pull, the auto would miss-shift and the engine would over rev to disembowel the lower half of some cylinder liners. It turned out to be an expensive truck to own.
