This truck was purchased new in Nelson from Hall Motors by Blomfield and Smith Builders as a cab and chassis. They used it for many years and eventually sold it to John Hansen Car Sales, who owned it for approximately one year. It was sold onto a ‘hippy fellow heading south’. Bert Martyn (Timaru) bought it at a Christchurch swap meet. Bill bought it after Bert died and finished restoring it.
