What is story on the four headlights ? This is the only B 85 I have seen from the front. All the other B 80 series  I have seen only have two. Really a neat truck.

Seen photos of a lot of Australian trucks Macks and other makes with Quad lights added to them. Later ones seem  to run added KC style lights..    Paul

Those dual headlamp assemblies were readily available from the parts bin. They were used on the G-Model.

I really like this truck. Someday when I get a lot of money I hope to buy one. In the early photos the air cleaner is on the left. The other photo has it on the right. Was this done due to an engine change ? Do you know what the original engine and trans. were ?

I'm thinkin maybe the polaroid is reversed in the two pictures? that's why the air cleaner is on the wrong side?
