This truck was bought new by D. M. Thomson of Pukemaori and went back to Hart Motors, (the Karrier dealers) in 1953 and was immediately sold to J. W. Clarke of Centre Bush, from whom Bill Richardson bought it in 1999.
These trucks were simply rebadged Commers, which Todds organised to sell through their Hillman dealers.
