This truck was bought new by Rollinsons Motors of Albury who ran a freight service from Timaru to Fairlie, Albury & Ashburton. It was sold to the Southland County Council in 1961 and used as a tractor unit for their low-bed transporter. They sold it to Ashby Bros, Christchurch in 1972 who also used it as a transporter. Bill Richardson acquired it from Rhodes Wrecking Yard around 1987, and it was restored in 2002.
