Historic trucks shine at big annual ‘American Iron’ show on Murray

The Murray River town of Echuca has once again played host to ‘American Iron’, the annual get-together and truck show, held by the Australian Chapter of the American Truck Historical Society (ATHS) across the weekend of September 9-10. 

A wide variety of trucks, from heritage models through to their more modern counterparts rolled into Rotary Park, with attendees coming from as far afield as Lakes Entrance in Victoria and Murray Bridge in South Australia. 

It was a thumbs up in Echuca for Luke Nicholson with his dad Tom, who bought along their beautifully restored Mack Super-Liner.

Well-established on the truck show calendar, the Echuca event is one of the three events put on annually by the ATHS, and the 2023 gathering saw vehicles ranging from everyday work trucks to recently completed restorations take their spot on-show.

For more great shots from the event, make sure you pick up a copy of the September 29 issue of Big Rigs from your usual outlet.

As always, the Sheppard Transport Western Stars from Geelong were beautifully presented.
