British businessman and philanthropist Sir Torquil Norman and elite mechanical engineer Gordon Murray have teamed together to develop an ultra-economical lorry for the African wilderness that can be easily assembled by three novices and simple tools within a day. The vehicle is largely crafted from plywood, with an all-steel unimold underbody with pre-mounted motor, with all materials packed into the steel shell for compact transportation before assembly.

Rather interesting, you always find the most interesting stuff kamnet.

Though I wonder how much power it has and how much cargo it can haul, and how safe is it?

Perhaps someone should make a GRF for OpenTTD with this, a cheap low cost truck for local deliveries or very poor companies.

I would posit not very. But you're unlikely to see another vehicle for miles.

Specifications called for high ground clearance, excellent approach and departure angles, large wheel movement, a multipurpose layout and a 3-person cab. The Ox’s cabin seats three people with the driver located in the middle. This allows the truck to operate in countries regardless of whether traffic drives on the right or left. The overall vehicle length is far shorter than that of a large SUV, but it can carry a payload of 4,188 lbs. (1,900 kg) – about twice the capacity of most pickups – with a load volume of 247 cu.-ft. (7.0 cu.-m). Based on European Union size guidelines, the bed can seat up to 13 people or carry eight 44-gallon drums or three standardized Euro-pallets. The Ox is powered by a 2.2L diesel engine making 100 hp at 3,500 rpm and 229 lb.-ft. (310 Nm) of torque mated to a 5-speed manual transmission.
