This one has appeared in an advertisement for a couple of weeks.
It looks to be DAS, which I guess is DAF. How common are these in Australia?
I can't read the model number.

It is the second incarnation of DAF in Australia. They seem to be doing a lot better as part of the Kenworth camp.

Roderick, it's a DAF CF is the model designation on the lefthand front. You can just see the C in the photo. Looks like one of McVilly's timber from Colac I think bidstbc. Cheers Tim ;)

This is in the dreaded grey 25-35 yo area, about which the forum is ambivalent. It looks modern to me. Another truck doing what it was built for: working. This one is a Leyland, but I don't know the model, or where it sat in the product range.

The badge is hard to read, but looks as if it says Beaver, not Hippo.

I went back to the original, but it isn't clear there either.
I guess all capitals, so it called be a large H and smaller IPPO. It could be a large B and smaller EAVER. It could be simply Beaver.
Others will know the Leyland style.
