Are the roads wide enough there for these type of vehicles? Only asking after returning from a trip to Ireland where the answer would be no. These are some real classic trucks! Thanks for sharing.

Bring 'em on! I'm sure others on this site would love to see them also. Great reference material is always welcome. I think most of these old trucks were used up in this country. Thanks again!

Interesting. Is that a Mack DM behind the B61? With the length restrictions in Europe, I would have guessed that COEs would be more popular that conventionals.

Zwaans used to be the MACK import for Holland, a lot of MACK trucks were sold new, at these days there is a lot of import from the States and some from France and Spain

I don`t think so, the Diamond T980/981 were in use by the Dutch army in the 50 / 60`s, replaced by the Thornycroft Mighty-Antar.

I don't think the M39 series was around much in the US Army much after 1980. It was replaced by the M809 series then the M939 series. The M39 & M809 shared a lot of the same components (cab, hood, etc.)

If these are actually Diamond T M39 trucks they would be really rare as both International Harvester & Diamoind T stopped making them in 1953 when Mack & Kaiser Jeep won the contract. Diamond T produced them from 1951-53.
