    In this pic is part of my old man's collection.

    There is a general service cargo ex army land rover, ex army International truck, a Studebaker US6 6x6 in its rural bush fire fighting attire and in the container is another US6. A couple of trailers including a number 5 for the land rover and an old genet trailer. One more US6 is left to join its friends at the new parking spot. A bit of assembly required before it can move.

            Here's a good little documentary on the Studebaker US6 truck from the Russian show Military Case. The Studebaker US6 was extensively used by the Red Army during WWII and it was very popular with Soviet troops.

            P.S. If one looks at the Ural trucks of today, you'll see that Studebaker heritage in the Ural's genes

                I spent quite some time working on a cmp chevy blitz while posted to brizzy. Even found a 6v battery to get the hairy old bugger chugging again but it was to no avail, needs a far more technical mind then mine to get it going.
