This truck was bought new in 1929 by Turners & Growers of Auckland for an egg delivery truck. In approximately 1946 it was sold to Haynes as a butcher’s truck. It was later used as a tractor unit for a mobile shop by Haynes' sons. Haynes donated it to M.O.T.A.T. in around 1970, and somehow Chas Edwards (Edwards Motors Auckland) gained ownership. Bill Richardson bought it in August 1986.
