A 5-ton, 7-ton or 8-ton Morris-Commercial FF 1958-1961 or the identical looking FH that could take a 6 cylinder engine 1961-1964, also sold as an Austin 45.

So it depends on the badging used for export. The badge looks to be missing here.

Definitely FF/FH, but probably not UK built. The extra vents in the front panel suggest it was built locally in Australia, ands that probably means a completely different model name to those used in the UK.

It was available as the Austin F Series in Australia.

From

1958 Austin FF in Mad Max 2, Movie

dsl wrote Aus assembly confirmed as Austin FF 1958-64. Versions were called 4.60, 5.60, 7.20, 7.50 and 7.60 covering 4.0-7.0 ton capacity with 120", 150" and 160" wheelbases. 3993cc petrol and 5160cc diesel.


Australian built trucks had extra air vents in the upper grille each side of the name plate. These were put in locally and may indicate a Diesel engine but at the end of the day they constitute a "Tropical" cooling mod.

Grille is missing but possibly heavier 7.20, 7.50 or 7.60 (7-Ton or 8-Ton in UK versions) as no evidence of horizontal bar fixings.

UK built FF introduced July 1958 therefore 1959 model year.
