About 10 years on from the picture above, this is a cut down FGT#9 on a F60L chassis. This vehicle was used during the making of the famous Australian outback film "Back of Beyond" starring Tom Kruse and directed by John Heyer. In fact, Janet Heyer is in the passenger seat.(Shell film unit). In 1999 I was involved in the making of a return for Tom Kruse to the Birdsville Track in his legendary Leyland Badger called "Last Mail from Birdsville - the story of Tom Kruse".
