Christmas 69 at Vung Tau Orphanage. photo shows Mk3 either 170 128 or 178, The truck has been re-cabbed, This is the first photo I have seen of a re-cabbed Mk3 in Vietnam.
It may not be a re-cab!

When you look at the rear corner ust behind the cambell clearance lamp, I can't see a gutter, so it may have just been a new front.  The front bolting off the cab at the "A" pillar, a much smaller task.

If your eyes are better than mine are, look at the windscreen. That should be the give away.The Mk3 windshield had 3x square corners and one round whereas the later modified cab windshields had 4 round corners.

After fiddling around with magnification sizes, I think the ARN is 178-172, and the drivers side front window has a round top corner, closest to the door.

When the nose/front changes so do the screens because the entire front comes away, leaving the two "A" pillars, the two doors the roof, floor and the rear wall.  To the front there is just a big empty space.

As I understand it you remove the front to take the engine out and the wiring harness disconnects with a couple of multi pin amphenol connectors.

It is why you sometimes see Mk3 fronts with a gutter at the rear and Mk4/F1 fronts with gutterless rear walls, the original Mk3 gutter finishing at the rear of the door.

Diana

BTW: You can just make out the bolts running across the top of the screens and the bolts coming down the "A" pillar.


The lack of gutter at the rear


AMk4 cab with the gutter continuing around the rear.

Re Mk3 Vung Tau orphanage, If it is 178 128 it would have to be a Mk4, I think it is 170 128 or 178I, 170128 was recorded as being in vietnam, as to a full re-cab or partial hard to tell from that photo, it does have rectangular mirrors most early mk3's had round ones, all 6x6's in vietnam had rectangular mirrors as far as I am aware, the other give away to identify a full re-cab is the mesh cover over rear glass the Mk3 is a full cover and with full re-cab it is split.

I didn't think any Mk4 went to Vietnam?  My understanding was that they were Mk3 4X4 replaced with F1 and F2 6X6.

That is what is recorded in Mike Cecil's Mud and Dust book.

I was going to say, what date is the earliest Mk.4 ??  I thought they were all post war production.

Oops, just checked my own research, 1968 is the first batch, so it is conceivable that some went.

Unfortinately this one's an SIII and by the look of the front antenna mount, fitted with a 1980's AWA F2 HF set.  So not an image taken in SVN.

100% correct, I just could not be bothered to remove it from the Bulk upload.

So I am very sorry for putting the impostor in here.  But its still a good picture.

It is a great photo.  I have a high res version somewhere that you can see a good amount of detail in the series 3 underneath.
