I remember Peter Murray’s yard well. It’s long gone now.

Each time I have been to New Zealand I have seen much more modern trucks than that one.:woohoo:

Brocky45 I believe the truck is either a Word War one era Thornycroft or Leyland. (both made in England)

I have a windsrceen/front panel of cab, exactly like the one on the truck. It was given to me by an old mate who said it was from a Leyland.
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!

Appears to be a 1913 AT model Thornycroft. Cab is home made. Acetylene lights put the photo before ww1.
Looks like there is a line still attached to stop it falling over.
