Does anyone know if Sterling trucks ever came out here to Australia
Not talking about the modern jobbies, the older ones say from the turn of last century to the mid 50's

I have never seen one in Australia, even in a photo but that doesn't mean much

I would of thought some may of made it out here during WW2

I believe there is an ex US Navy Sterling wrecker that belongs to a Victorian collector.

Thats what I was thinking, been chain drive (not all but a lot were) they were way over width so probably had little value after the war
