Customised to symbolise Australia’s bush culture, the truck has spent the past several years travelling the countryside attending events and visiting with fans.

Sporting a unique ‘Australiana’ livery and interior finish, the truck was crafted as a tribute to arguably Australia’s most famous rural business pioneer.

With a powertrain comprising a Detroit DD15 560hp engine and manual transmission, the 4800FXB has accrued just over 211,000km.

The 2011 model prime mover comes complete with a range of features including a 40” stratosphere sleeper, leather seats, alloy wheels, bull bar and walk plates, LED lighting, and stainless-steel guards and light bar.
