 A 4X4 Lend-Lease Chev      
Well, not exactly. This interesting vehicle attended the 2005 Corowa Swim-in, and was built by Barry Peters. It is in fact based on a Chevrolet C60S winch model chassis serial 28442S00711.
Barry based this on a MCP Maple Leaf seen in the Observers book by Bart Vanderveen, and it's an impressive sight on the road.
The cab was found in a creek where it had sat for over 25 years.
A Chevrolet Blue Flame 235 Ci engine has been used. 4 7/8" front axle.
Barry has also fitted a 5 speed gearbox which meant moving the transfer case back.
Some universal joints were used to make the steering work.
