|A Low mileage F60S|
|In Lithgow there is a very low mileage Ford F60S. Originally a RAAF radar truck, this was bought for a rural fire brigade and then not used.
The owner does not want to sell it.
|Still sporting original pattern tyres this is quite a gem, although the years in the weather have taken their toll.||The build date is early 1945. The original khaki paint can be seen under the RAAF colour.|
|Amazingly it's aluminium rear number plate was still there and has been preserved by the owner.|
|Original mileage - 04830. The general tightness of the vehicle and completeness attest to this.||Late production pattern canvas gearshift boot.|
|Both fuel tanks had identical patches - their purpose a mystery.||The liklihood is it once had the same body as this example sold in 2001 in Bandiana.|
