Hanno, do you know more about that yellow C60L with the FAT crew cab? I remember seeing pictures of a similar conversion (same one?) in one of 1945-1947 vehicle dumps.

No, other than that I know it is Dutch and soldiered on much longer than other surplussed CMPs. Would love to see that picture in the Deelen Dump as it implies this was a military conversion.

Hanno,

Picture attached from Wheels and Tracks magazine.....the very same vehicle, but a civvy conversion not army.
It does say that the truck was saved....I wonder where it is today....I don't remember seeing a C60L wrecker here in Holland.

Evert van Luttikhuizen bought it and took it apart (the truck is on his driveway in the second photo). The cab is sitting in his garage and he fitted the holmes crane to his c60 wrecker. No idea about the chassis though.

Default C60l

I just learned that Evert kept the chassis aswell. It is sitting outside behind his barn.
