Although recorded in official records as being DG model, general concensus is that it was FG model
Tractor body built by WAGR
Hauled original Campbell & Mannix-bodied semi-trailer registered 0582, previously hauled by Foden DG prime mover, also numbered (F18), and White WA20 prime mover also registered 3577
After scrapping of trailer (F18), reported as having been renumbered (F1), replacing the original Foden FG prime mover numbered (F1) hauling semi-trailer (F1) ie the converted Dyson Landliner
   ie TAAB p42 & p96
If this is correct, then presumably this is the Foden (F1) that was converted to a table-top truck by WAGR
