Yeah, there were a few good John Deeres built. I think Dan will agree! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OXLP4XA-fLc

Mark

Thank you for all that info. We are fortunate to be in a very dry climate. I sell for a John Deere dealership so I am able to get into places that are not often seen by the general public. Many of these trucks and trailers are just sitting around and have been replaced by newer trucks. Many of these farmer and ranchers are wanting to clean up their bone yards so most can be bought a little over what they will scrap for. My son is 20 and has been farming since he was a junior in high school and is very mechanical so he can fix some of these up and use them in his farming operation until he is flush enough to buy newer trucks. We both like Peterbilt and John Deere history so it is fun to learn new things from people like yourself that will share information with us about trucks. I have a friend that is a farmer that likes old trucks as well and his son is also interested in old truck history so this has been fun. They are the ones that saved the old Mack and White several weeks ago. Thanks again for all of your info, Mike

You sure come across some cool stuff. Peterbilt used the "K" prefix for rebuild(glider) kits. Starting with K5000 thru K5894. November 1961 thru April 1968. After which they started using regular serial numbers with a "K" suffix. Starting with # 28080K. This info is from Warren Johnson's "The Evolution of Class". The cab would be mid '62 or later.

My son bought this old 351 water truck today serial # K5585. Not sure what year it is because owner lost title. He bought it on a bill of sale. Has a 250 Cummins and a 5 & 4. Its a old Weyerhaeuser truck we think. He is just going to use it to water his farm roads. It has a wing hood that came with it that is not on it in the pics. It runs good with no smoke and it didn't cost him much but it needs some TLC.
