just called a D100, also i think a Power giant in some places. from what i understand these ones are quite scarce, this shape was only in 58 and 59 in SA. Mine was made in Elsie's river plant CPT.

here some info i dug up if interested.

I'm having trouble deciding what to do. On the one hand i want to keep as original as possible but on the other hand i don't want to smash into 4 cars ahead of me because of trokkie wiele and drum brakes. It had a 318 when it started out then somewhere in the 80's it got a LA 318 heart. It had some RR on the load bin and also has a DIY tailgate, probably also from Rust. But other than that its bone stock original. oh yes and there's a hair covered wine cork plugging the transmission..... :oops: :oops: :oops:
