nttrophytruck,
could have been sold to the PMG (Post Master General) or ETSA (Electricity Trust of SA).
What was the original colour underneath, this may provide a clue?
Red (PMG)
Cream (ETSA)
Good luck
Pierre

A very good chance it was a fire truck, I reckon the CFA in Victoria had them but they were single cab
I believe some may have also been under the Austin banner

The original red for these was Carnation red,but, there were 3 different codes/shades, and in their wisdom, BMC / Leyland called them all Carnation red.
