i don't know if hasting's still has their's, but this one here in west monroe really run's nice, it was idling while i took the pic's, i got 40 shot's of it, speaking of power steering, my oldest brother in the early 80's drove a white freightliner cabover with no power steering, he came over to my house with it one day and said, let's go for a ride, you drive, i weighed about 118 pound's at the time, it took 40 acre's to turn that too, he was laughing at me trying to turn corner's going slow. had to lift myself off the seat to turn the wheel.

Our town had one similar to that one a big gas job with the pipe coming out of the center of the hood and running up over the roof.  It would go through almost anything with the V-plow.  No one wanted to drive it because it had no power steering.  It had a huge steering wheel, but it still took a football field to turn it around.  I remember it had good heat, and something sticks in my mind that the shift pattern was reversed from a normal truck.  That was a long time ago.   Mike

That is exactly like the 1950 one I drove for the Town of Hastings.

the town does drive this around, it went by my house last week, it really wouldn't take much to make this thing look new, it's solid. here's the interior, it's a little rusty inside here and there

I grew up in Saugus, MA, and have fond memories of a straight-pipe Waukesha-engined Walter (40's vintage) charging up the hill behind my house.  Nothing stopped those beasts!  After 30 years service, they were gone by the late 70's.  They owed nobody nuttin'!
