Kenworth Legend 900 6x4

Travel Auckland's motorways and you can't miss them: Gleeson & Cox's tippers with their distinctive red, blue and white livery seem to be everywhere.

That's not surprising, given that the fleet totals more than 100 trucks, and that the Wiri-based company is a major carrier of roading metal for motorways and other big infrastructure jobs, plus other bulk loads.

On an electronic display board mounted on the wall of Gleeson & Cox's dispatch office, lights show the location of each truck.

At some times of the day more than a dozen lights will glow on the relatively-short stretch of motorway between Drury and the Takanini causeway on Auckland's Southern Motorway. So the trucks are truly out there in numbers.

But among all of these Gleeson & Cox trucks – 15 Isuzus, one Nissan, one Foden, 17 Kenworths, 14 Volvos, four Hinos, four Internationals, 38 Mitsubishis and 18 DAFs – there's one real standout. A new, very special, even glamorous addition to the fleet.

It's a truck with a real difference – the sort of truck that causes enthusiasts' jaws to drop. The sort of truck that conjures daydreams of life on the open road, thundering down the highway looking at the world through a windscreen, carting (or going to pick up) that next load to haul, the next town to visit.
