Just got back from a 10 day run out west and visited the museum at Gilgandra where it was based on the Howard Tractors and rotary hoes but they did not have many of each but had a swag of tractors and a couple of old trucks.
F600 had a strange winch set up leading up to the frame on the back. Not sure if it lifted bales up on that back.

cobbadog When I started reading your post I thought you were referring to the white or light grey coloured Austin K2 or K4 missing its bonnet as a Morris and was thinkjng I have never seen one of those with Morris badges but as I scrolled down I realised you meant the red Morris Commercial Series 111 FC (forward control) 503 ex fire engine. I wonder if it is the one advertised at Muswellbrook some ten or twelve years ago? I had a one-owner Series 111 FC503 tray truck but had to sell it when I lost storage about five years ago.
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!

Hi Morris,
By some strange reason I took some pics of the body plates on the light grey truck.
Q. Did Lark Hoskins deliver Austin trucks? Because that is the dealer plate on the grey one. Then I got the body number and another that escapes me at the moment. I can post them up next time on the desktop if you like.

Cobbadog Thanks but I am not really interested unless it has Morris Badges on it which I doubt.
As far as I know yes, Larke Hoskins were Austin and Morris dealers and would have delivered vehicles.

Their slogan was “Larke Hoskins for Austins”

56 Palmer Street.

Back in those day sit would have Brothels all around it!

And I was way to young to frequent them.
