This was one of the very last Austin trucks to feature the Loadstar type cab, although now with a one-piece windscreen and shorter doors with the bottoms cut off. It still used the old four-litre six-cylinder Austin petrol engine first used in the series 1 K models of the late 1940s.
It was purchased new from Wilson Elliot Ltd Balclutha on the 2nd of June 1971 by E.S Botting and Sons of Te Houka, Balclutha and remained in their ownership until Bill purchased it in 2004.
