This truck was purchased by Ryal Bush Transport in September 1981 and they operated it until 2007 when they donated it to the Museum. Possibly the best known ERF in New Zealand as it was the first truck and trailer unit set up to specifically cart live deer in NZ. This truck travelled 380,000km in its first year as it travelled the length and breadth of NZ, sometimes being away from its home depot for several weeks at a time. It has now travelled over 4.3 million kms and has found a pretty good place to rest.
