    A bit of a rare Ted. I wonder if it’s still running, don’t see many 6×6 configurations now days.

  • Thanks for the comment Tony. I expect it is, these boys look after this sort of kit once it has been restored. – Ted

    Nice capture Ted.

  • Thanks Richard. I think the greenish tint is due to age and the film type used. – Ted

    Great shot Ted, I love the old feel to this shot!!

  • Thanks for the comment Shaun. Old films always seemed to have either a green or red cast according to the film used. – Ted

    Very nice—however—this truck is a GMC CCKW (early model-has "GMC"name plate top center of grill).Plus GM didn’t allow other companies to “license build” their trucks—she’s a"Jimmy" for sure— and again VERY nice work,thank you!

  • Well waayfast, I bow to your superior knowledge and thanks for the information and comment. – Ted
