A Sydney timber company imported this truck, as well as two 3 Ton Gotfredsons. It would have cost him 8,425 pounds (1,475 pounds for the 20B, 3,475 pound for the 3 tons) before delivery costs. They used the Gotfredsons for timber delivery. This truck was sold to a market gardener and was used to cart paw paw from Dyrring to Gladstone. It then went through collectors: Greg Shacker, Daryl Groves, and then Alastair Grant of Maroochydore in Queensland. Bill bought it from Alastair Grant's Estate in 1996.
