This model was bought new by Eion Wood's father, a contractor from Omarama. Bill Richardson bought the truck from Eion Wood's widow in 1998. The truck's last job was to carry Eion's casket at his funeral.
Originally this truck was fitted with a trailing axle. This was removed and as a 2 axle tipper this truck did a lot of work in the North Otago area.
