|Chevrolet C15A, Adelong NSW|
|Robert Pearce from Adelong in New South Wales is the owner of this Holden-built C15A. Robert uses this truck as a spray rig and says it's the best he's used for the hilly country around beautiful Adelong.
Robert tells us he had wanted a blitz since he was 12 years old and finally got to drive this truck at the age of 39.
|Now 50, Robert is the proud owner of this truck with some interesting markings.||The truck had belonged to Robert's father-in-law, who sat in a deck chair supervising Robert's handiwork as he rebuilt the brakes and fitted axle seals. Robert has fitted the rear tray from a Nissan Patrol with the spraying gear.|
|Interestingly the vehicle appears to have had a rebuild sometime in it's distant past, with the first number, 8421 signifying a C15 4X2 model, whilst the lower one, 8444 is right for the truck, a C15A 4X4.|
|Here's another interesting conundrum: the ARN on the front shell is Army...||Whilst the number on the bumper is RoyaL Australian Navy.|
|Inside it's had the dash insert modification to adapt it to late pattern insruments.||The 216 Chev motor is still fitted.|
|Original pattern tyres are still in good nick.|
