Thanks Hayseed,
I like the way he scaled down the cab, looks like it was sectioned out of the centres straight down from the front glass area ??
 Looking at using the same 6BG1 T ?? diesel for another project I've got going.
Yeah, the little "W" pic, I took at Wangaratta.

Did you notice the sticker under the front bumper.... Louisville.

Really liked the look of this slimline single drive with the furniture pan. Detroit powered from memory, same event.

Thought I might post another pic of the mini K100 to bring Kenworth Weds back. From memory I believe it was Isuzu powered.

That one on the left appears to be a 4 seater. What looks like a side window.

A couple more from Israel. The first (pic by Moshe Karmin) was what we call "emergency import", that is, special orders of trucks many of which without Israeli dealer which were needed during and after the 1973 war because so many military and conscripted civilian trucks were lost in battle. When it arrived in Israel it had a locally-made air-assisted PAS installed, and a visiting KW engineer who could not understand how the driver was not worried about the "air leak", lol. After the driver explained, he asked said engineer why someone would order a class 8 truck without PAS and was stumped by the answer, which was because the person who originally ordered it had African American drivers who apparently "did not need" power steering... Unthinkable in 2016 I suppose.

Second pic (by Jacob Aboody) is two trucks he drove, also US spec ones, with light and fast rear axles which did not agree with traditional Israeli loads (well, over-loading) originally and which were replaced by heavy rating Volvo and Mack rears + spokes.

The first cab over Kenworths sold in New Zealand were Canadian K900 series built in the Canadian Kenworth factory at Burnaby, British Columbia. The first one arrived in 1966 and was a K923R model with Cummins NH250, Spicer 4x4 gearbox and Page and Page walking beam suspension. It was sold to J.V. Geany of Rotorua. There were probably less than 10 Canadian K900s came to N.Z. Here are some Canadian K900 series trucks.

In 1971 Kenworth opened their new Australian truck factory at Bayswater, Victoria and from this time onwards all cab over KWs for the N.Z. market were built at Bayswater. This Shell Oil N.Z. K125CR with torsion bar suspension and 10 stud English wheels was one of the first off the Australian production line.

Later Australian K124CR with larger separate headlights.

Before Australian production commenced KW sold U.S. built "Seattle" K100 series trucks in Aussie. Here's some U.S. K100s in Australia. Notice the differences in the cab panels around the headlights between the Canadian K900s, U.S. K100s and Aussie K100Cs. None of these photos are mine-all had been posted on the net.
