I don't think I posted them before? LOL

I'm pretty sure that Red R700 new on the lot went into the steel mill also. I know they had two in there that pulled a 100 ton float. They had the big 50 or 65,000 Mack rears on camelback. They also had 3406 Cat's in them, but not sure if that is what they originally had.

They now got turned into International Paystar's. They used the engines and axles and suspension in newer International frame and body.

 

I used to know the details of the Superliner too, but I forgot. I thought it had a KT Cummins, but it almost looks like Caterpillar badges on it?

I can't zoom in because those are scanned off of photos so the quality isn't great.

In the third pick there what is going on with the tippy trucks passenger fender?  It looks like it has a box built on it and an exhaust pipe coming out of it. Is this just an optical illusion?

I would say a red COE is parked behind and makes for a weird look.

Great photos of the other side of the world in a very different time 

 

Thanks for sharing 

Would the R 700 have had 24 inch tyres  ? They seem to look a lot tougher with big rubber than 20 tyres

The red one at the dealer? Yes those are 12/24 inch rubber.

Some day I'll have to dig some of my other ones. I have pics of one of the first DMM tandem tandem mixers to be delivered in my area. That was quite the sight when they first came out.

I always wanted to go to Australia. I have a couple friends there. But I'm still waiting for them to build a bridge because I don't fly, LOL.
