Very interesting! Reminds me of the big Büssing trucks.

As I hadn't seen this one before I tried to find more Information on the internet. And now I am a bit confused about the name. In most documents the name is given as Jyry-Sisu, and even on the trucks the inscription is like this:
http://130.231.241.44/~tomilepp/pics/wanhawoima/gallery9.html
Link to "www.peltilehma.com"
Almost all web-pages about this subject are in Finnish, which is hardly a problem, as I can read everthing written in Finnish, but the letters ... :D

At least the official Sisu web-page is available in English, too:
http://www.sisuauto.com/portal/english/about_sisu_auto/sisu_auto_history/
Here it says:
"1951 Chassis assembly started at Karjaa (where trams and bus bodies were also made).
The various makes were Jyry, Kontio, and Nalle trucks, Ilves bus chassis, and Kärppä-Sisu for military use."

So Jyry is a make, not a model?

BeanBandit, can you help?

Well, I read some literature and searched for web, and it seems, that Jyry-Sisu is more like a official pet name for the model, and the official model name is K-30, and the model year is actually 1953. Here's a piece of advertising I was able to find, it says (the middle one) "SISU K-30, so called "JYRY-SISU" for heavy duty transportations."

Thanks, very interesting. I really like these trucks! :)

Do you think it is the K-30, as it is a 6x4 with a sleeper-cab?

I can't be sure, it is so hard to find reference photos of such a small brand. But K-series did go up to K-50 (52 ton), and did not find a picture of that either.
