Alice Springs AU


Recommended Posts

Thanks for posting all the photos. Very surprised to see the pair Willys pick ups in Australia. Looks like I'll have to add there to my bucket list. Paul

Great stuff!

I doubt there are many places with a big collection of Atkinson's.

Diamond-T road train is impressive.

Just as a truck it's a relatively rare thing with closed cab in Europe.

Did I see a Chevy truck there? Looks like a '51 or so with what's left of a '54 doghouse on it,and from the height I'd bet it has some sort of 4WD conversion under it. I really like that road train too.

Paul and Paul

I do not know what days or hours they are regularly open?? The big Reunion show only happens every 5 years, so start saving your pennies!! Possibly ATHS will have another tour???

I also have 3 more topics to start: Misc trucks at Alice and the 4 private collections in Melbourne which will be on Odds and Ends Other Trucks. And Tony Champion's collection which I will put in the Antique Mack section.

SO STAY TUNED

I've always been meaning to go to Alice for this, but life always gets in the road

Looks like a show, did the tour include the private collection or was that something you knew about personally?

This the one? GM Australia never used the newer one piece windshield cabs on the 1954 model year.

This whole deal was set up by top ATHS members thru a private tour director. So the private collections were thru various friendships. There were 30 of us total so it made 1 nice bus full.

I think (??) a lot of it may have been due to import taxes?? A lot of the Aussie's used older parts and styles in assembling vehicles. Not to mention the IH / Chrysler connection. IH L and R models with a Dodge Pilot House cab and Dodges with an IH A model cab..
