In the truck brochures they show a number of wheelbases, including 212". I have owned a couple of 195" wheelbase trucks, but have never seen a 212" unit. Were they only available as a cowl and chassis unit to be fitted with a bus body or could you order a cab and chassis with a 212" WB?

If it helps, I think that only 2 ton (series 38 & 40) came with the 212 wb, at least in the later years.
