    Looks like a Lewington paint job. A really great shot of a really great truck. Many thanks.

    Thats a standard Kenworth paint scheme. Been in use since at least the 50's here in the US.

    Thanks Peel Yeah thats right we have had them here too well a lot of the early Cabovers were Imported straight from the States with that design not too many of them in recent years though so it was good to see a modern Truck all decked out thanks Peel

    just to set the record straight this one is from the reeves stable driven by my brother in law greg crow (crowie) and runs the hume hwy everynight pulling a B double for hunters express. charlie had this colour scheme in the early 80's before lewingtons and possibly the ones you saw in the early days were a reeves, as he had a few of them including SAR,s before going from mainly red,black and white as in photo to blue,silver and white then to pure white with the usually reeves black and red pinstripe and scroll work
    this red one and one blue one in the fleet the rest (about a dozen or so white ones)all kw,s except for one argosy
    thanks steve (linehaul jnr)

    no worrys mate you do some of the best photos I have ever come across dont see many furniture trucks thou. being an old funiture removalist myself I used to subby for downard pickfords in the 80's and drove gerry hoares (my best mate) fiat truck and dog running melb to adelaide after she bought the kw
    I'm sure you have a photo of reeves old cab over (i think a k123) in the same colours as above it has white &black I-T plates on it and twin air cleaners coming over the roof, it was one super quick truck in them days as you would be doing overnighters
    keep up the great work
