This high cab Kenworth was the prototype for the later Aerodyne. In 1974 it was sent to Alaska for road testing for a year.

The later flat floor they did in the US (around E cab era) Interesting daylight doors, aero mirrors and what looks like our later K200 long cab step ?

 

 

As found in recent times.

Rumorr haz it
th@ this is one of the same Kenny
Kenworth imported this beast to put on show around the country
it was an 8 wheeler with torsion bar suspension @ the 4 corners
it was not liked as it did not travel well on out goat tracks
the front suspension was removed and converted back to a standard 6x4
thinking Brown & Mitchell ran it up the hwy when  painted red
Most notisibly by the cab step infront of the wheel
There is a photo somewhere loaded on Ted Rowes from Hamilton Vic
crrting the Kenny with a spare torsion bar suspension set up as a display
