I can remember quite few of the real early Isuzu's as Chinese 6's...

Some companies had Nissan UD of this config.
With room for a cricket pitch, between the first and second steer axles.

Not a Stude. They have flat mudguards.
Lang mostly has Dodges?

It is a 1 1/2 ton Chevrolet (same cab as GMC). Pretty rare with winch and tipper back. I drove it like that from Bowen to Brisbane with my dog on the back. No brakes - nil either foot or hand brake. Took me two full nights with a torch and red cellophane on the rear and one headlight. Bit exciting going through Rockhampton at 3.00 in the morning trying to time the lights but never had to resort to emergency stop (low gear and ignition off). 1983 try that caper now!

A Military Jeep Club member has just completely rebuilt it and came to the last show. Good to see after 40 years still going.

This is it after I did it up.
