Greetings. The Kenworths with the spread drive you could at the time spec from the factory. The instamtic photo would have been taken around '72- B I Gilbert I think , the 8x4 was taken in the sydney haulage terminal, the Kwikasair on the way out of Sydney If I recall correctly. The 8x4 Hayes of Copper City Trans was taken at the Angaston cement works in '74. The 6x2 M.A.N belonged to a Mr Barnes (ex Ipec) given to me by the M.A.N dealership when they were at Gepps Cross in Adelaide. The Ipec 6x2 was taken at Detroits, Cavan, Gabriel Baird 8x4 Volvo F86 taken at Truro, the Boral trucks were taken on an interstate safari as were some of the others- one of the Melbourne runs. Next time

Wonder just how many of those spread drives came out of Kenworths? The only ones I was aware of were the two "grub" trucks running under Camerons banner , dealt with on this forum some time ago. Sometimes pulling 4 wheel dog trailers on express. Great handling, until the first drop of rain, then if you weren't on the ball, could be downright treacherous, especially if lightly loaded with market express.

Overlander.
Thanks for the explanation.

Cheers Steve

Werkhorse, Thank you for posting Peter Ramsey's photos. Those spread drive rigids must have been a nightmare to drive in the wet . Great pics. Does anyone know how many Hayes trucks came to Australia and if any have survived.
Cheers Ray.
