The truck was restored by Alf Barnes of Wellington, starting in 1969 and taking over 4 years. The truck was at one time owned by Noel Etwell. It came from Wairarapa, as did many parts for its restoration. It is thought 249 of these British trucks came to New Zealand. The 4 cylinder engine has twin ignition.
The truck was bought by Wilf Milner of Petone in 1987 and Bill Richardson bought it in 2002.
