DETECTIVE WROTE
...early days the big Inter cabover jiggers in the USA were known to them as ''high binders''...eventually the nickname was shortened to ''binder'', and these very stylish rigs went on to become the DCO Inters that we all know and love, with the CO series (diamond cab) being modified, raised and elevated to become the DCO 405 (single drive) or DCOF 405 (bogie drive) premium linehaul trucks, operated right through the late 'fifties and well into the 'sixties

YEAH DETECTA
I remember those that Con Dobre had in Adelaide. They looked real sophisticated and mean. From memory he used to run across the long paddock with them until he was bought out. I wonder if there are any photos around of the Dobre fleet.
Trying to make it down-under before Christmas. A visit to Peterbilt Palace is on my wish list. My hands will be full so I will have to kick on the door instead of knocking.

g'day grumpy .. Con Dobre ran the earlier ''EF'' series DCOF's with the NT280 until he sold out to Alltrans...

...i've got what's left of an old slim cab DCOF including the 280 and huge Cummins turbo....but unfortunately Inter's early records on these fully imported jiggers are pretty much non-existent, so the trail goes cold on this one....

...PS .. by all means kick the door when your out here bloke....just don't wear your Sunday bests ;D ;D.... it'll probably be an amazing walk down memory lane for you .......cheers :) :)

Gor,
Th@ binder (truck) is an ugly, awkward looking piece of machinery.
What were they thinking?

An upstairs downstairs sortta truck with a porch or balcony on either side and a sleep-out at the back.
What did they have in the (empty?) compartment in front of the driver? A swing out BBQ and kitchen?
LOL
