The other half of the Paccar pair is, of course, DAF.

The appearance of a CF85 model with an all-Aussie livery left no doubt that plenty has happened since the last Brisbane Truck Show in 2017.

For instance, the CF85 is now the first DAF to be assembled at Paccar’s Bayswater (Vic) headquarters, but it definitely won’t be the last.

The Bayswater facility is currently undergoing a massive $30 million-plus expansion program as Paccar prepares for a future where the Dutch cab-over will play a far greater role in the Australian operation.

In typical Paccar fashion, it may not happen overnight.

But it will happen!
