Willème founded in 1923 by Louis Willème specialised in making large sized heavy haul trucks.
Willeme was already known in the 50s and 60s to make the heaviest trucks. They worked very closely with Deutz for their engines, but the high cost of these heavy-duty vehicles deterred clients from buying more, and by 1970 the firm went bankrupt before another French firm called PRP purchased it.
This model, called the LC 610, with a powerful V6 engine, first rolled out in 1953. For the next decade, these "sharknose" trucks that were designed by an external firm, Faget-Varnier, and built by Carrosserie de Levallois, France became popular and were even exported to Czechoslovakia, Iran, and distant Mexico.
This truck is a rendition of the one that transported 'red' deer between national parks.
