Hino Assembly Plant, Carterton.

I was recently lucky enough to be alerted to these great photos, taken by the Wairarapa Times Age, of the Hino truck and bus assembly plant in Carterton. These were taken in August 1977. I have chosen to show all of them, even though some are quite similar, and have adjusted the light, as best I can, to bring out the detail
Close-up of a bus cockpit. The second "gear-lever" is actually a compression release.

Big HH model used the same cab as the smaller models, just jacked up a bit and some filler panels added.
The HH was 6x4, there was also an HE (4x2) with the high cab.

Buses used a mid engine, laying on its side.
