Caption reads:
Following the introduction of the Junior Constructor in 1957, the Constructor range was widened again in 1958 by the Super Constructor, a powerful 6x6 tractor powered by either a Leyland 0.900 or supercharged Rolls-Royce C6S, and with eight-speed semi-automatic transmission. Although a handful appeared in Pickfords' and Sunters' liveries with impresive crew cabs, the Super Constructor was a favourite for overseas heavy-haulage duties. This example, coupled to a curious double-pivot six-axle trailer, was deliverd to Quarry Industries of New South Wales in 1964. Note the mechanical hand-signal device on the driver’s door!

I was the driver of this Scammell from 1967 to 69 for quarry Industries. I have many photos and would like to know where this truck is today.

This Scammell was exactly the same as the one that as I had whilst serving in Northern Ireland in 1972 but with a King 3 axle low loader with loading ramps.
