Commer Superpoise

We were up in Avoca last week and we saw this treasure in a timber yard. It is a Commer Superpoise, fully loaded with logs, though it appears it hasn't moved for quite a while.The Superpoise range was introduced in 1939 and had semi-forward and full-forward control options. They were 1½ to 6 tons with either a 6 cylinder petrol or Perkins diesel engine. A new Superpoise range was introduced in 1955 with 2 ton to 5 ton payloads. I don't know what year this truck is, however the grill appears to come from a Caterpillar Bulldozer. Avoca is a lovely town, well worth a visit.
