Classic Pix – True Blue


Shot in the mid 1980’s, this FR700 Mack “True Blue’ contracted to Mainfreight and spent much of its time under a Steelbro Sidelifter.

The Sidelifter was a revolutionary piece of kit back in the eighties and Steelbro enjoyed significant overseas sales and was one of New Zealand’s export success stories.

Mainfreight has gone on to become one of New Zealand’s most successful companies, and co-founder Neil Graham was particularly proud of the fleet he helped establish in the South Island – with ‘True Blue’ being their ‘King’ rig back in the day.
