The good part is the cab is made out of thick steel and can be cut and welded. Those rubber parts for the cowl and windshield/back glass should be a priority. At least you'll have them when you need them.

Sure wish the owners of these trucks would at least throw a tarp over them instead of letting them sit exposed to the weather.

Tony, when I went to look at my White the first time, I asked about why it wasn't in a barn or garage.  I was told that at one point they had so many cars and trucks that they had to pick and choose what was in the garage.  The White on the cover of the May/June 1998 WOT was in the barn (I think some of my missing parts were donated to its restoration), but some of the other vehicles I would have left outside.  I can understand some like a mid-20's Grant sedan, a late 20's Dodge coupe (in boxes), a fully restored Jeep FC-170, and most of a 1918 Autocar.  There were several other vehicles sitting outside:  2 Ford F-7 road tractors (one was scrapped, don't know about the other), a Mack B model gasser (sold), 2 more Jeep FC-170s (both beyond all help), a 50's era Nash, some kind of Mercedes Benz sedan from the 60s, a small Caterpillar dozer from the 60s (sold), a Gallion road grader (scrapped), and some kind of scraper pan (also scrapped).

Its rough looking, but the more I dig around on it, the more I find that is still good or easily repaired.  I haven't found a job for the summer yet, so buying parts for it will be slow going.  Now that I'm pretty much done cleaning it out, I'll put a lumber cover over the hood, cab, and crane and weigh it down really good so it won't blow off.

I'm anxious to see Part II. Sure wish the owners of these trucks would at least throw a tarp over them instead of letting them sit exposed to the weather.

I figured this would be the best place to put the video that I made of the truck last weekend.  Its only a walk-around description, but it has me itching to get it running in the coming months.

Drew  You are on your way!!!  It all starts with the first clean out and inspection.  Keep us posted and good luck.

Life  is like a roll of toilet paper the closer  you get to the end, the faster it goes!  Enjoy each day.

I made some progress on it today. I got the shop-vac out and vacuumed everything out of the cab, its spotless in there except for the dirt and rust that couldn't be scraped off with the hose. I did find an interesting collection of stuff in there though. Here's the list: a 2.5lb BC fire extinguisher last serviced in 1974, a 16 fl oz plastic bottle of Cheerwine with a metal screw off top (I'm too young to remember those, mom guessed mid/late 80s), the standard issue reflective plastic triangles in red case, a body hammer, the original dog-bone lug wrench with cross handle, three leather gloves, a pillow case, a matching ice scraper and 12 inch ruler from Winks BBQ here in Salisbury, an empty can of ether, some insulation/landscape fabric that smelled like mouse poo, the headliner in quarter-sized chunks behind the seats, general trash, Jimmy Hoffa, and the grand prize: an almost complete set of IH Reflector-Flares. I've never heard or seen anything like them. I looked on ebay, and there was a few sets for sale, and one of them had the red cloth flags on there too. The box was a little dinged up, but everything is there except for the flags.

From what I was able to find, the floor is about was I was expecting, it has pinholes here and there, but nothing that can't be fixed. The front strap on the fuel tank is missing a 6" section along the bottom, so I may be dropping the fuel tank sooner than I thought. I left a mouse trap next to the shifter with a fresh pecan just in case any passengers came along with the truck.

Sunday afternoon I crammed my black lab and navigator, Biskit, in the cab for a picture or two. Brittany took the pictures while I was bribing him with milkbones. He gave me this look when I set him back on the ground that I usually get when he wants a ride, and I promised him that we'd go on one in it in a few years. Next Monday I'm hoping it will be pretty so that I can pressure wash the loose paint off and fix the bent portion of the hood. I'm going to go to Northern Tool and get a good tarp to cover the cab/hoods/fenders with, its not a garage, but it will do for the time being.

That's a nice looking White. I really like the set up.
Speaking of big rollbacks, I have a International 5000 series with a 28' rollback that I commonly put 36,000# on. It's a brute.

I have the same on a International 4900, We put backhoes and 60 ' booms on it all the time but prefer lowbeds.

Love this Bar, come as you are.

That's a fine addition to any back yard.  That W-4 will look good sitting on the flatbed.
