No, they have long flowing mudguards (got one out the back). After a bit of a look, could be a '36, or later one.
The wide bonnet flutes (?) remind me of Diamond T, but looks like pressed wheels.

Thanks for the Karrier response.

690402W Elizabeth St at Franklin St: Tram W5.732 and assorted vehicles and fallen flags. (Roderick Smith)/
Holden EH.
I can't guess the Fletcher Jones van: possibly Morris/Austin, but it seems to be too large.
Holden HR.
What was the typical TAA airport bus of the era?

These two photos show either the one truck, which turned while I was there, or two of the same model.
It/they belonged to M&MTB, and were part of the works fleet during relaying of the junction from Glenferrie Rd, Malvern, into Malvern tram depot (Armadale; the footpath is the border).
I am guessing early 1950s Ford, but all I am finding is the F100 model, not quite right.
Probably the photos were taken on Wed.3.9.1969, as I had no lectures on Wednesday afternoons.

Looks much too big to be an F100. probably a larger one F500 or F600, as suggested by others. I do not remember Melbourne metropolitan Tramways Board (MMTB) having F100's but they were "modern" trucks then and of no interest to me.
How our interests change. In 1969 I bought my first old vehicle, a 1929 Chevrolet Ute, which I still have but my latest purchase was built in 1969! and is now fifty years old.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!
