Gotta do stuff like that here

I looked through quite a few of these videos last night,and when I got to part 11 I was stumped! I consider myself a pretty decent "truck-ologist" but I saw one truck I was un-able to identify! (yes,i am ashamed of myself) if you go to youtube,or follow the posted link,look up part 11,the truck in question appears around the 5:03 mark,it's a C.O.E. straight-job,red with black fenders,and a green tarp covering the body and sadly Green-Leaker powered (sounds like a V-4 or 6)..........maybe one of our Mates in "Oz" can tell me what it is? neat looking truck for sure,just wish I knew what make and model. I re-played the video several times,but still could not makeout the nameplate below the windshield.........................................Mark

MARK, FEAR NOT MATE, IT'S NOT A DETRIOT! YOU WERE LOOKING AT A COMMER AN ENGLISH MAKE! MOST LIKELY POWERED BY THE "COMMER KNOCKER" WEREN'T TOO BAD DEPENDING ON WHO YOU TALK TO. HAVE MEMORIES OF THEM GETTING AROUND AS I WAS GROWING UP, THERE WAS A LOT AROUND BACK THEN. MICK

P.S. I THINK THE PICTURE IS IT :whistling:

Vision....

that engine is a Commer TS-3 two stroke..... lots of video on youtube... there is also a Foden FD4 on there too

must have been all those leaking engines abandoned by American tourists in 1945 that got someone inspired.. :whistling:
