When the CV series ‘Equi-load’ range was introduced late in 1937, both four and six-cylinder engines were available. When production resumed after World War II the six-cylinder engine models were gone. Four-cylinder petrol engines powered all models including the five-ton version. This model was also available with a diesel engine as the ECVO type with license built Swiss Saurer six-cylinder engine.
This truck was bought new by the Shell Oil Co. and sold to Roy Pask in 1960.
