Thanks Swishy. The Brute was never imported to Israel on a regular basis - why a US contractor had them is also a mystery. If you wanted something like this there was the option of getting the "regular" C500/510 from the dealers but in general the T800H was rugged enough for most situations. I also have a feeling the bogey is off a Mack (happened a bit over there, particularly with the early K100s which had a low rating rear axles) but I'm not certain...

...here's another one of Mr. Aboody's pics, in this case the KW bogey was replaced for one of a... Volvo :o

...and one with Mack rear axles. The alloys were only retained on the front as they were too weak for the typical loads carried by these trucks.

g'day Swishy and all .. these are very interesting pics of the cabovers as they all have a cut-out in the corner of the cab for the exhaust....pretty rare to see on the Kenworths....

....there is one of these 3/4 cabovers with the cut-out down the back streets of Sunshine North....Canadian built with single headlights, and very possibly RHD from new ??......cheers
