There is a 6x6 tipper coming up for auction at Pickles Thurgoona, just over the border in NSW.

You had a nice one DKG? Perhaps Johnny now has it? Wonder if the older gear at Thurgoona, were potential restorations for the army museum? Note the Fordson, White and others!! Long time since they were in service. Note no C/P notation on listing!!

Still got mine, it has been doing duty as the fire tanker over summer. I had a look at the Pickles auction very tempted, it looks far worse in the photos very late production truck, minimal rust, only 4500 miles, missing tail gate and tool box. I think you are right about being surplus museum stock.

Iíve still got my tipper too. They are wonderfully simple and have great axle articulation, making for more than a few fire brigades voting their off road performance as legendary. Iíve got my fire gear on my tray version, but it would probably be more secure in steep country chained on in the tipper. Good luck with the bidding. At least it is close.

It sold for $3400.00, someone got a bargain.
