The International AB160 - The Teaspoon Tipper

Before they were replaced with Mk.2 F2 Tippers, the army used the International AB160. this vehicle was essentially a Civilian spec 4x4 truck. The crews gave it the "Teaspoon Tipper" moniker in reference to it's small payload.

Reasonably few of these vehicles still exist in a restored condition. The Army Museum Bandiana have some, as do some REMLR members like Murray C whose vehicle is pictured below.

These vehicles saw service in Vietnam and Borneo. Some photos of their time in Vietnam can be found on these other REMLR pages.
