EPISODE 5: A GREEN DIAMOND IN THE ROUGH
NTI TRUCK RESTORATION FOR MOTOR NEURONE DISEASE
Every truck tells a story; and while this 1946 International Model K5 appears to have lived a thousand lives already, its greatest journey is only just beginning.
Over the coming months, NTI will orchestrate the rebuild of this historical beauty to raise funds for Motor Neurone Disease.
The restored, operational truck will be a culmination of time, energy, skill and resources generously contributed by NTI’s suppliers, partners and industry affiliates. Upon completion the truck will be raffled, and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the MND & Me Foundation.
Green Diamond will be a truck built for the community, by the community. It will bring people together, tell a story, and serve a much greater purpose. The entire journey will be documented and shared online via a series of webisodes, across NTI’s social media platforms.

We went to our people, told them the story and they agreed MND would become our primary charity. With our DNA and background in transport we felt the restoration of a truck would let people follow the journey, enjoy it, but then raffle the truck for a great cause – Motor Neuron Disease.”
Tony Clark, CEO, NTI
