A very rare one never seen before only sold in Israel :) Not sure what the source is...

I would saay the bus has had a WW2 GMC 6x6 deuce stuck under it


Ramat-Hakovesh's (a commune) fleet in the early 50s with a nice mixture of Israeli and US cabs (as well as a Dodge, pre- and post-war Fords, a screamer and (I think) an ex-Wehrmacht Opel Blitz. Pic from the commune's archives

Some more from Israel and very rare there: one with a sleeper, unheard of back then and real luxury for the drivers.Pic (courtesy of I. Nachman) was taken at the Haifa port. The truck in the pic was owned by Kibbutz Afikim (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Afikim) in the Jordan Valley who had a large wood products factory.

... and the same back at home with a smaller "super Power", a Fargo or a Dodge, a Canadian Military Pattern Ford or Chev, an Austin 12hp car and a couple of Mack NRs. No idea about the tractor... Pic from the Harvard U Israel collection.

I understand engine placement necessitated the w i d e wheel spread, but what a bear that had to be to steer. Iron men and wood-framed cabs.......................

Some great sharp photos Tutlebrain, in the last picture of the White bus climbing the hill, the truck on the far right looks like a British Bedford A series built from 1953-1957.
