You found a great truck...that old DAF has some history, its was brought new by ICI Vic & was an explosives transport truck with a tri-axel under her tray, then was owned by John Porter in Campbellfield Vic where the double layer bomb proof tray & 3rd drive was removed & we built the tilt tray for her (she had to have 150mm cut off due to VicRoads length laws). She had the DAF motor take out & a more powerful R series Mack motor dropped & a top speed of 160km on the highway. We had a few full sideload rubish trucks on her back, alot of containers & roadwork Machinery.This old DAF was the longest ridgid tilt tray in the sthern hemishpere when we built her. I would like to know what she has under the cab now & what geabox & how many times the Rams for the tray have bent while you have had her.
She was the pride of the fleet for us...im sure she is or was for you.
