I could swear I remembered a link about a man who built an amazing COE/RV based on a very old truck that he started out only having a cab for that was collected somewhere midway north and south in eastern Australia...

I can't find the mans page anymore, and he did fantastic work putting it back right!

You are talking about the Acco 6x6 (Australia's old Army Truck)?

Looked at it - and no....

This was a forties or fifties FORD COE that was resurrected from the bones that were left.

Seems to me it was painted out in mostly tan, and called for a HUGE amount of custom metal work.

It was a year or three back, I was in Norfolk at the time when I saw it.
