Hi , Very Nice Guy Quad Ant and very complete and original by the looks of it - There are generally two positions for the Speedometer on the Guy Ant Trucks - One is on the main central flat panel where other gauges exist or another is to the left of the steering wheel in a small box as per Tobins picture - Didn't understand totally why they did this as you can barely see it whilst driving really ?

I love the truck as it doesn't look as if anyone has messed with it since the war which is a rare find these days !!

 

Restore or preserve The truck is great !!

Fantastic find! Seems Guy drivers had a tendency to crush the mudguards....

What an awesome find! Maybe rubbing it down with some "Julien" rust converter would help bring out the markings?

 

 

Congratulations....a rare truck!

Alex
