VIDEO: New lease on life for International DCO

By: Matt Wood, Video by: Matt Wood


Anyone who’s been rolling around Sydney over the last four decades may recall the International DCO tow truck owned by Retriever Towing.

 

But, before it was hauling breakdowns and wrecks for a living it was owned by Vineyard based Don McGlinshie. From 1969 to 1974 Don ran across the paddock to Perth and anywhere in between in this rare cab over Inter.

This DCO came back into Don’s possession in 2012 and has been painstakingly brought back to life.

These days the old girl runs a BC3 Cummins and sports a 15-speed overdrive ‘box. And while the purists may bristle, the whole thing now sits on a W900 chassis with a KW Airglide rear end.

Turn up the volume and listen to the old school burble and watch a bit of rolling history!
