Old Truck backfires, graunches gears, won’t start and often has to be towed. Retired, rejected and shut up in a shed, Old Truck feels old and useless. Is this the end for Old Truck?

In this heart-warming true story, Old Truck discovers he is not old and useless but unique and special. Educational graphics and photos show the real Old Truck’s heritage in a great line of trucks made in Alma, Michigan, USA, his long journey to New Zealand and his remarkable restoration on Silodale Farm. 

Today the real Old Truck, a rare 1921 Model 10 Republic, is ‘out and about’ and much admired at vintage machinery rallies. Old Truck has featured in newspapers, magazines and on TV.
