Ford F15A

New F15A with sunshine roof (above and right) Army serial C132081 Large reference image

Not a gun tractor but an F15A fitted with 20" wheels and winch which has just been over-enthusiastically used to bend the chassis.

Another winch equipped F15A. To make a gun tractor chassis requires more than 20" wheels and a winch. The transfer case cross member needs to be modified to take a 2 speed transfer case and a double rear cross member with extra fish plates is installed along with the winch cross member. I n the cab the rear floor is different and a winch handbrake needs to be fitted.

F15A in as-found condition by Nelson Wilson in the mid '70s. I towed this vehicle for him using the C15A wireless van.

F15A I briefly owned in the 1980s. It had a later sidevalve (8BA) and the chassis had been docked but had an otherwise well preserved cab.

Looks like it would have been an excellent project.

Photographed in New Zealand, 1976 this is actually a F60S water tanker.
