When we were at Longreach recently this truck was at the caravan park we were staying at, I thought why not take a photo of it so I can put it on my wish list.

Cheers

Isn't that the mob who did Mick O's mods (Multidrive)??

Hi Daza, including purchase price prior to the mods would have set him back a few $$$ would have been great to see how it was all set up. Regards Steve

Looks fantastic but, and i was thinking about this with Mick O's vehicle when i saw it, with such a long wheel base, how would you go going over dunes for example? Just musing.

Hey Daza,
It wouldn't have a number plate, It would come with it's own post code. ;)
How long is it going to sit on your wish list for mate? I reckon you would have to jump on the tools again to afford her. LOL
She's a beauty and she'd cost a bit of coin too.
Good on them :)

We travelled the Simpson one year with an extended 6WD troopie powered by a 6.5Lt Chev diesel. it featured in one of the mags a while ago. It made it all the way ok except for Big Red - not quite enough horses. We didn't see much of it in action as it's owners liked to lag behind a bit.

Like the others I would say it looks good. But off road performance worries me. The extra long wheelbase would give bad ramp over clearance and the lousy departure angle would stop it going to a lot of places we like to go to in the hgh country.

Looks good for towing and that appears to be its main role.

It wouldn't see the inside of our garage though.

Not suitable for tight hairpin tracks, but open desert & general touring it should be fine.

When I joined the fire brigade back in 1980 we had a Maguirus Ladder in town. It was a horizontally opposed flat 8, I think and air cooled. It was carrying a big heavy truck with a big heavy ladder on top. It went like stink and didn't need a siren the noise that thing made at speed would wake the dead.

The Troopy picture is a bit deceiving... it looks like it has a pop top to it but its the van behind.

I've put the set up on my wish list too. After tonight $30m could have one signed up tomorrow.
