It is an Atkinson.The 4870 Atkinson had a set of lights down low like a T line and a set of lights set high in the grille. Same cab different grille and trim. These are obscured by the Oversize signs. IPEC had the lower lights moved to pair them with the the set in the grille. Not sure why but might have something to do with GM powered option. Sure someone will enlighten us on this and set record straight.
Yep those were the days. Don't know if they would get away with high set headlsights today. I have 4 of those mongrel P320 Scanias with the driving lights set in the sunvisor like most European.... today. Forever getting harassed by authorties about the legallity of these even though standard equipment and registered by NSW RTA. Biggest mistake International did was go Iveco. I know bought out. Had an Iveco once-don't get me started. I still have the old faithful T line bought new by my father and still earning her keep. Can always rely on the old girl to start first time and get the job done. Sorry for spit but now feel a bit better. Bring back the real Inters.
...those Atkinson's and high set Inter 2670's were real bangers in their day T .. in regards to the lamps out front, i 'spose these were no different to the late 70's Kenworths or Macks that got the bigger headlight clusters also...although there was an initial stink with authorities about their application...
At last, one where I can get the make (but not the model).
