The Rhodes Ridley

When the Rhodes Ridley was commissioned in 1958, she was the largest truck in the southern hemisphere. She was built in Welshpool by earthmoving company DFD Rhodes Pty Ltd from designs sketched on Masonite sheets by workshop manager Harold Ridley, who had no formal qualifications.

Mechanic and Author of Let’s Build Our Own – The Story of the Rhodes Ridley Terry Joyce joined Jane and Brad to talk about the remarkable story behind this WA-built prime mover, her life in the Pilbarra and her loving restoration.
