Oshkosh R-1234 before restoration

1967 Oshkosh model R-1234 when purchased 2011 prior to any restoration work . A very rare truck in Australia - powered by a Cat 1673 6 cylinder diesel @ 250 hp . Rather underpowered for its time in Australia .

You're right that it's a bit under powered but I did local work in Melbourne for East Coast Transport for two and a half years in the late eighties and it was reliable in that time. Did notice big difference with next truck with thee fifty Cummins.
