This 1939 Diamond T 404 was bought new by Kaiapoi Woollen Mills and used as a freight truck until around 1967. It was then sold to Mistyvale Pig Farm in Rangiora. In 1972 Chas Edwards of Auckland (who operated similar Diamond T buses for many years) bought it. Bill Richardson bought it from him in 1986.
The drop panel stake body was built on this truck new by Steel Bros. Drop stake is just a flat deck with stake sides and drop panel means filled in around the wheels. The paint scheme was copied from a Diamond T brochure.
