UNSOLVED MYSTERIES
(#Z309) UNKNOWN REAR LOADER, NEW ZEALAND


    The place: Wellington, New Zealand. The year: 1971. A Bedford TK series truck with an unknown packer body, based loosely on the original Gar Wood Load-Packer design. Watch the film and see if you can identify it. There is a badge on the front of the body, and oval with stylized lettering that appears to read "NEWCO". There is a metal fabricator in Australia by that name, but I can't find any evidence that they ever produced truck bodies. I also did a search of "YEWCO", a British company that did import tankers down under (and made a Fore & Aft tipper in the early 1960s), but that was inconclusive as well. Thanks to George Lanoszka for forwarding this one. Packer is shown operating at approximately 10:00 into the film.






Contact CRT if you can positively identify this or any of the trucks shown on these pages, or if you have pertinent information on them, or would like to add a different truck to the list
