It would have been hard work in those days Pete, no sync gearbox or power steering, I once had a go at driving an old Albion rigid truck(unloaded) and you needed arms of a weightlifter and legs of a Olympic swimmer

It sure was Garth,

It was bad enough in the 70's when I was a  Bus Driver driving 20year old Buses around the town,

Then the new Fleetline buses came and they were as easy to drive as a car.

Double de clutching all gears, feet pumping like playing a church organ, the knack was to match the revs engine and box
