A photo I took around 1987-88 of my fathers truck, owned by the Dept. Main Roads, Tasmania. This was a Government owned truck but my father treated it like his own. he looked after it so well that they decided to repaint it in a newer colour scheme of all orange instead of the orange/black front guards. It was often the truck they used for ceremonial duties such as the Premier of the State opening new roads etc. They also updated the old Ford V636 (Fords rebadged 3208 Caterpillar V8) from 175 HP to 210 HP and changed the gearbox from direct 13 to overdrive 13 ... brought the speed up from 85 km/h flat out to somewhere above 130 km/h
