This popped up in facelift just a curiosity truck, I am guessing perhaps a crane truck with a pop hole for the crane driver. Though it looks like a gunners hole from ww2. And is it a KW.



It's a cropped pic with an early holden in front..... somewhere western NSW.

The first series Fiat Topolino in the right of the photo is even more rare.

I would suggest it's an AEC... Or at least some sort of pommy cab over... With a local/homebuilt cab

Here is the AEC but it has sloping windscreen bottom



I reckon this Leyland fills the bill.

I’m leaning toward pommy as well as werkhorse, the radiator sticks out at the front like a AEC , the bottom picture of langs army jobby seals it for me

I'll go for Leyland too, but the cab is totally different to the one Lang put up, (no step back to the base of the screen), so probably locally made. However, it does have the leaf spring pack "Bull Bar common to wartime military vehicles. Having a double set of springs is fairly unusual.

Yes and I too like the baby Fiat.

Cool little Fiat Overnite

As for the old yella beast, definitely pommy, I'll chuck Albion up
I'm thinking though it's more likely AEC or Leyland

Maybe Morris Commercial

Here it is. A Crossley.

Windows match as do the creases in the roof.
