Passing through LA airport recently there are dozens of these short trucks used as aircraft tugs and for towing ancillary equipment around the tarmac
Old trucks will make you poor but not unhappy

Swishy mate
Did the numbers could have put the load right up hard to the loading rack but then it is a single drive KW.
Move the trailer in a a bit "the overhang is well within limits"
Got it work the trailer to the limits so the KWs can front up next Day
Now here we go they have PINK VOLVO'S and we now have PINK MACK'S and the Mack's are just like the one VOLVO built for you.
And they have ladies driving them. We are on our way where the industry will see more women driving Trucks.

..The BBC on those day cab Kenny's are 52" .. still a lot more generous than what some manufacturers were offering in the early 1960's and into the 70's ...

99% sure I passed him on the Eastern this arvo, was dragging a tri drop deck with low profile wheels.
I'd rather have tools that I don't need, than not have the tools I do need.

I do not have a picture handy but here in the States Studebaker made a short one like Swishy's 58-59 Chevy above with an extendable frame to lengthen it out for safety after delivering the mobile home.
