Hunter Valley Vintage Truck Muster 2011 - part 2

We took the Volvo and the 1418 Benz to the Hunter Valley Vintage Truck Muster, held on May 14 & 15 at the old Pelaw Main coal mine at Kurri Kurri in New South Wales. The event was organised by the Hunter Valley Classic Commercial Vehicle Club. In this post are the American trucks which were on display at the Hunter Valley Vintage Truck muster. Click here to see all the English and European trucks, including our Volvo and 1418 Benz.

Above is a neat 1958 Chev and a C60 Chev is shown below.

Another Chevrolet, above.

The Diamond REO, above, is owned by Rod Calleja, from Melbourne. It was originally owned by Fred Love of Morwell and is a familiar sight to those who have frequented Gippsland Truck shows.

A Diamond T, above.

This 1958 Dodge came all the way from Mount Gambier. It is owned by Alistair Armstrong.

Above, a Dodge and an International.

This is a fabulous Ford, a great restoration.

Model A Ford (above) and two more Fords, below.

A Model T Ford, above, and a Ford tipper, below.

A Ford 500, above and a 600 below.

Ford V8.

An AA110 or 120 International, above. Below is an AL 120. I must get into the habit of writing down the model numbers, because there seems to be a gazillion different International models.

Two really old Internationals, above and below.

An Inter D1310, above. Below, is another old Inter.

An R180, above and an R190, below.

Blue is my favourite colour, so I love this AR120.

Two more Inters. The one on the right is a KB3, owned by Ed Eminson of Dubbo.

Murray Langford's W-model Kenworth, all the way from Mount Gambier.

Paddy Ward from Orange had a W-model Kenworth and a 'shovel nosed' Kenworth, below.

Another Kenworth, above.

Rod Calleja's B-model Mack, above, and another B-model, below.

Another B-model and a Superliner Mack.

A Superliner, a B-model Mack and a W-model Kenworth.

An R-model Mack, above. The yellow one, below, is a Flintstone Mack.

Two more R-model Macks, above.

Paul Harrison Transport, had a whole 'fruit salad' of trucks on display, including a Volvo, a Morris Commercial and some Bedfords. He also had the three Macks, above, an R-model and two B-models.

An Oshkosh.

Peterbilts, above and below.

A White Tipper.

There was a good display of restored Fire Engines, shown above and in the next two photographs.

Finally, I want a Road Train. How fantastic is this. It's not a vintage truck, but it got a heap of attention. Darren Peak owns it. Click here to see all the European and English trucks on display.
