Australian Army Staff Cars

Model:

I stumbled across these two HD's on active service in Vietnam in 1966.

Comments

These differ from the army cars I remember in that the roof is painted green and not white and also they seem to have painted all the chrome in black. Very rare and interesting pic, thanks for posting.

Is the look intentional to draw less attention ?

bit of saltand then the tropical would reveal the quality of gmh chroming pretty quickly. the paint team probably threw a coat of olive drab over the cars once on the ground. didn't the aussie cars have a slight gloss to them in civvie service??

Old thread I've dredged up while searching for other stuff but here is a photo I took of my HR yesterday. After around 2 years off the road she's finally driving again.
