modelmaniac,

Renault bonneted trucks are not produced any longer: all their range is now of a cab-over-engine design, as most of European trucks these days, because of overall length constraints mainly. Even European heavy haulage companies have gone away with the "conventional" design, even if length is not really a problem for them.

"Gamme C" large bonnet trucks were the successors of the GBH range with a narrower bonnet, dating back from the Berliet period: http://www.lesrenaultdepapier.fr/gamme_chantier.htm

I hope this helps.
Guy

Due to the lack of dedicated electrical network, citizens living around Maidstone were transported on more conventional buses:
