    They don't make them like they used to - great old truck and unreal driver/helpers.
    Needed a better cooling system :rolleyes:
    Well worth the watch.

    why stop to fill the rad? :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    Very impressive, though I doubt it'd pass an MOT! :D Even when covered in mud you could see that the inner edge of the front tyres were fubar'd ;)

    Impressive indeed. Is the chassis meant to twist so the cab points at a different angle to the load? Is it about to break or just designed with that flex so it doesn't snap altogether?

    Takes me back, I used to work on these 2 wheel and 4 wheel drive versions,old styling when new (not that I worked on them when new) robust, reliable and rugged machines, though I was glad when the last one was put out to pasture :D

    I reckon it would only get new tyres or retreads when they blow. Otherwise - usable!!
