Mystery early truck in New Zealand


Recommended Posts

An interesting one taken probably late teens or early 1920s. The caption was "Delivery of furniture to the Whakataki Hotel, early 20th century"


The Whakataki Hotel is still there - it can be found on google maps - but this photo may not have been taken there.


Even though NZ had a mix of British and American trucks I think this one may be American.

Radiator has a GMC look to it. But so many early truck makes have a similar appearance.  The front mount tie rod makes me doubt GMC. I wonder if they lost any of the cargo on the way ? It looks like quite an unsteady load.
