I agree that it was Ford factory built. Anyone can tell that by looking at the body lines on the doors and the roof. I've never seen a crew cab N series. All the info I have on my old Ford trucks of that year doesn't show a crew cab truck as a option. So maybe since the railroad bought it, they had Ford build a crew cab specifically for them. Either way it's a cool rare find. I hope to see you fix it up and take it to some truck shows.
Grab another gear and keep on trucking!
P S Does it have air brakes or hydraulic? What engine does it have in it?
This one had Hydraulic with Booster on frame
7000 lb front axle and 17000 lb rear axle
330 HD, 5 spd 2 spd diff
Non ford built N Crew if there were any would not have 360 deg drip rail, most would have outside hinges on the rear doors and the roof panel would have splice in the middle vs the one piece roof on this one. Door tag on this one also shows Louisville KY build, Proper 212" WB.
Parts books don't show any info for any year crew cabs thru 1972 but we know they made them.
Yes, It was a special order by the Railroad in Salt Lake City, UT
