1942 Federal 6x6
Me and my brothers restored and modified this truck from a wreck in the late 1970's. We put the Square guards on it, Kenworth headlights and B Model Mack Steptanks. We repowered it with a 5 cylinder UD diesel and a Roadranger. Went very well, although still only had top speed of around 35 mph. Photo was taken in the late 80's. Last seen around Mareeba, Qld area. If anyone has seen this truck, or knows it whereabouts, please let me know.
