The 1942 Ford LD6-4 that appears in the March/April 2012 issue of Vintage Truck magazine is owned by Bob Schutt of Queensland, Australia. After many years of research, Bob believes his truck was on its way to Netherlands East Indies (N.E.I.) to help defend Dutch colonial possessions and was most likely “on the water” when the Japanese over-ran N.E.I., then the ship it was on would have been diverted to Australia along with 30 or more other ships originally destined for Malaysia, Hong Kong, and the Philippines.
