Default Australian International Army Truck Prototypes Testing Film Late 1950s

Hello All,

I am not sure whether anyone else has seen and posted this film detailing the initial development and testing of the Mark 1 International trucks? Anyway, apart from the now very poor quality background music, it is a very captivating flick. Accessed 4th June 2020 from,

The film shows action sequences of "Prototype" P1 and P2. Then P3 does its "Jungle Trials" in Canungra in Queensland. The film finishes with the Mark 1 trucks in production which is celebrated in a large passing out parade. Enjoy!

Kind regards
1940 Chevrolet MCP with Holden Built Cab (30 CWT).
1935 REO Speed Wagon.
1963 Series 2A Army Ambulance ARN 112-211
Series III ex-Military Land Rovers x 2
