A 1926 model red Chev truck was popular with hundreds of men, women and children when it took them for tours of the old West End cemetery in Townsville.
Driven by 21-year-old Ty Williams, the Chev transported 12 people at a time around the cemetery during the 14th Townsville Heritage Day celebrations on July 23.
The event was held at West End Park and buried in the cemetery are many pioneers of the road transport industry in the city.
“The Chev never missed a beat and ran like a dream. People queued up during the four hours of the event and I lost count of the total number of people who sat in the back,” Ty said.
The red truck still has its original Chev 4 petrol engine and a three speed gearbox.
It used to be a mail truck at outback Nelia and has been in the Melville family for three decades and travels around North Queensland providing rides at various events.
