    Default humber scout truck

    saw this on oz ebay and thought it was quite a handsome looking beast, only trouble is it's 12000 miles away, you'd be looking at 2k to ship it and 27.5% on the sale price for the revenue and customs man so maybe not viable financially but i'll leave that up to you.

    The trucks for the non-MOD contracts were called Commers.

    Not civilian necesssarily, just non-MOD.



    The Australian ones, although referred to as Humbers even by owners of them, actually show the chassis plate:

    "TRUCK 1 TON 4X4 CT. COMMER FV1601"

    In their reports the Department of Supply, Trials & Proving Wing, Monegeeta, just refer to it as:

    "TRUCK 1 TON CT, CARGO, 4x4 MK I"
