Looks derivative of a 1948-50 Ford F-Series, but I'm pretty sure it isn't.

Here's a picture of a Leyland in Israel, which looks a lot like: [Image: 3661083754300e5223e6.2661.jpg]
I think it was built by Leyland's plant at Ashdod sometime in the late 60s. Note that it seems to have a normal-control version of the LAD cab.

Information found from the net:

Quote Leyland Israel 1960 - 1973

After Leyland Motors had set up an Israeli factory at Ashdod under the supervision of the Leyland Ashdod Motor
Corporation two goods models were offered both under the Leyland name. The lightest was the 12 ton GVW Super
Chieftain which was no more than a development of an Albion model which bore the same name with a locally built
Ashdod Vin fibreglass cab and 106bhp 6 cylinder diesel engine. The heavier model was the 20 ton gross Super Beaver
with a 200bhp 6 cylinder diesel engine. This could be had with optional Pneumo-Cyclic transmission and was joined by various passenger chassis virtually identical to their British counterparts. Production ceased when the factory was given over to the assembly of American Mack trucks under a different company name.

Thanks, Raul1983 ... this is probably a locally-built Super Chieftain, although the home-market Albion version was invariably forward-control (COE). As far as I can tell the Super Beaver would be much larger than this.

The cab from the firewall rearwards looks to be the same as the mid-1960s normal control Scammell/Leyland Contractor http://ccmv.fotopic.net/p47895389.html

The Contractor's cab uses the majority of parts based on the Motors Bodies made 'LAD' cab. The hood/bonnet and front wings could be locally made in Israel.

I thought that the lightest Ashdod Leyland model was the 'Clydesdale' ?
There were 2 models with the Vin fiberglass, the super Beaver had another one which was not similar to the LAD one with a windscreen in two parts.

I think the Chieftain had an other bonnet length as the Clydesdale .
