Currently unavailable for purchase

This old truck has seen better days and now sits decaying in the paddock between the historic Cordillo Downs shearing shed (largest shearing shed in the southern hemisphere) and the road from Birdsville (south-west Queensland) to Innamincka (north-east South Australia).

The truck appears to be a 1951 Ford F-5

    That is fantastic Tim. Love all the colours and the good Ol truck

  • Thanks Karina. I’ve got a few other pics of this truck, but I think this is the only one of only the truck (and the clouds make this one better IMHO) – the ol’ truck’s not looking too good though!
