      Thanks Vincent thats very appreciated mate=Thanks Pappa yeah that trailer really suits it i think a great model truck and is very very rare in Australia which is a shame as i think they would have sold heaps of these in the 1980s and late1970s=Thanks Gloria yeah mate i too like them without the Bull bar but in reality over here you would be crazy not too have unless you are just doing local city work I Never left home without my Bull Bar they are way better than a seat belt ==Thanks Vincent=Pappa=Gloria

      A really impressive unit, well shot,Craig. Did this one do much work, it certainly presents well.It would make a stunning highway shot.

      Hi, I'm an admin for a group called World Trucks, and we'd love to have this added to the group!

      Guys,

      This was one of two 1980's Freightliners brought into Australia as test units - one had AirLiner airbag drive suspension and the other had 6 rod suspension! Both had Cummins engines and 13 cog RoadRangers - this one is called "The Old Sheila" for good reason!
