Yeah that's the one I saw Paul- it's a bit the same as the one/s another member is restoring.

Great photos everyone, I dont ever recall seeing many LPS trucks with the full size sleeper in Australia, only maybe a handfull at best and most just had likevthe ones shown here a 2/3rd size bunk, guessing our length laws made the unpopular

There was one at Charters Towers a while ago for sale but I was busy collecting other stuff

I have been pretty keen at times to find a LPS with full bunk to add to the collection of stuff I want to get done one day

Quite a bit of engineering to get that all working.
Front hoist inverted too - lots of piping.

Great stuff there Overlander and Paul

I wonder what "triple system air brakes" are

European air brake systems were different than Australian and American and Im guessing it was when ADR came into been that European trucks and doubt buses all were modified to ADR for sale here
