    It has an unusual back axle and is missing the transverse spring. Makes a nice project for someone.
    Some say the cup is half empty, while others say it is half full. However, in my opinion both are wrong. The real problem is the cup is too big.

    Just noticed it has two gear sticks. Caters for left handed and right handed drivers perhaps. Chassis number 2596 does indeed date it to 1917 so almost certainly ex WD through a post war rebuild and exported to Australia.

    The lack of a transverse spring does suggest post-war so that or a rebuild, perhaps to increase the payload. I think the second 'gear lever' works the diff-locks on the side of the transfer case. I can honestly say that crawling underneath to lock the diff when stuck in the mud is no joke!

    A super lorry and a great project for someone.
