1946 Coupe Cab Chevrolet Truck owned by Reuben
As you can see from the photo it came off rather poorly with an encounter with a Kangaroo. Reuben has had the Chev for around ten years and he says it was in very poor condition when he bought it, since that time it has undergone (still underway) a total restoration.
This Chevrolet has a Australian built Holden body and it only came in two colours Narva Green and Coolangatta Cream.

The Truck is still very original, although it is wearing a set of mag wheels and currently running a stromberg carburetor while Reuben was looking for parts for the original Carter. See photo below (although the air filter is in the way)
At the time of writing Reuben has a similar truck due to be restored in his shed, it’s a 1300 series 45 Chev Truck

1926 Chevrolet Entrant number 25 Driver Darryl Sutton Navigator Judy Sutton
Chevrolet, one of the most popular General Motors marques, was founded by race car driver and enthusiast Louis Chevrolet and automotive legend William C. Durant.
Chevrolet entered the automobile market with the sole target of competing against the Ford’s Model T car. But with time, it certainly became a worthy challenger to the Ford’s traditionalism and established a stronghold in the automotive market by consistently producing cars worthy of its name – cars of power, speed, stability, appearance and price that would outclass any other car in its class.
