Certainly some interesting trucks there, thanks. I don't have any to add, sorry.

Sorry Dima , but I read this from Workhorse...

" Hi guys, I have recently had a request from a fella named Dima in the Ukraine who is researching the history of sleeper cabs on trucks. He has asked if anyone has any photos of sleeper cabbed trucks from the pre 1970s ... The earlier the better."

Your pics are very interesting.

Cheers
RS :)

Roland! Workhorse - my good friend. He believes that in Australia, the first trucks with sleeper cab appeared in the 60s. Therefore, he wrote. But anyway, Thank you very much. Sincerely, Dima!

Yeah it started with pre 1970's and I think we are creeping back a little .... which is good .... Ray Gilleland (RIP) aka NullaborKid Told me that most blokes in the early 50's slept on a board across the seats, on top of the load ...or even under the trailer .... basically wherever they were comfy. By the mid to late 50's some guys started to make their own sleeper cabs by just extending the cab backwards ..... gotta remember that most british cabs back then were timber frame with sheet tin/Aluminium paneling .... easy to work with.

Ray's Albion HD54 "Moonlight Gambler" with home made sleeper in 1958



This shot is in Melbourne in 1960 and shows a possibly home built sleeper on the AEC in the centre. The sleeper may possibly be a Hastings-Deering??? built add one ..... did they do sleepers as well as day cabs?


1950's Outback Foden ...... looks home built too


Another one


More 1950s sleeper action






Thanks to the guys who donated the photos to TMP ;) 8-)
