    While I have been going backwards (and mad) mechanically, there has at least been some progress on the body.

    Last week I was in the North Island and I called on my mate the cabinet-maker who is doing the wooden frame for the cab before it goes to my mate the panel-beater and painter for new sides in the scuttle and he'll paint all the metal-work while he's got it there.

    I love the look of your little truck. I would guess (and it is a guess) that it is the type OS chassis - the beefed-up commercial version of the KZ. The extra wheel studs are the external give-away. The instrument panel looks more like 1929 but...Has it got a plate or cone clutch?
    Hi. It is a Type OS1. I think that may make it a 1928, but there doesn't seem to be that much info out there. As far as the clutch goes, I haven't had a look, but I'll get over there in the next few days, and have a look. FWIW, the chassis number is 293672. I don't know if that would help anyone identify a year of manufacture? The truck is nearly ready for starting, with all the bodywork conserved, so we're hoping to have it on the road soon. Can't wait!

    That should make it 1927 at the latest. 1928 has a plate clutch

    We have since discovered that this truck was made in September 1927, and the OS number is 5016. The truck is now properly registered, and should be on the road soon.
