Truck quiz #14 - Finished

Recommended Posts

This truck is an Australian RFW. Found in 1969 by Robert Frederik Whitehead. He started with a new designed rear spring called Permatrak installed in a Bedford 8x4 truck. Later he builds his own trucks. The  cabs were flat-panelled over RHS-steel welded frames. In the event of damage a section could be cut out and replaced easily, in the field. RFW’s forte was all-wheel-drive trucks that were often needed to fulfil particular duties. The RFW advantage was custom-building way beyond what European and North American truck makers could manage. In the early 2000's it was planned to use Tatra tubular frames but  this never happened due to the death om R.F. Whitehead in 2010.

Sorry taht I forgot to mention who sent in the correct answer:
