This truck was purchased by R. C. Rollo in 1961, from Gilroy Heavy Haulage in Christchurch. It travelled from Christchurch to Invercargill for many years, collecting scrap metal and batteries, (many people will remember it towing two small four wheel trailers). Ownership transferred to Graham Lawson Rollo of Dunedin in 1977, Kakapuaka Motors in Balclutha in 1982, William (Bill) Ward of Gore 1989 and to Alan James of Hastings in 1996 who restored the truck. We purchased it from Alan in March 2008.
