Trans looks like a non OD CLark going by the shift pattern.  Only thing is the 1st Rev are backwards from the info I have seen.  Definatly seen harder crash boxs to keep track of the gears in.

Speaking of rust have has anyone else tried any of these newer products that you spray on and then rinse the rust off? I bought paint for my engine from KBS Coatings and they sent a small bottle and it actually works on all but the deepest rust.

I know you are buying the Ford (good move in this case) but as others have mentioned that truck would have Air Brakes for sure, whether the compressor was in the picture or not.  It is one big truck for a 7500 Series.  The gas engine would be a 478.  The year of the truck is at least a '70 and could be as new as a '74 or '75.  Appreciate the picture of the shifter pattern.  That is one strange pattern that I am not familiar with on a 5 X 4.  Altho an interesting truck, I agree the crane is the best part of the truck.  It looks like it's got some rust issues to deal with.

3rd picn the bottom left shows the air compressor.  The master cylander is for the Hydraulic clutch.  Seen a few of them.  Even had an integrated hydraulic clutch/brake in a 60 chevy 1/2 ton pickup.

Boy, does this truck bring back memories as the first big truck I drove was a 1967 GMC 9500 with a 478 V6 with a 5 and a 4.  I ran it the summer of 1972 as a site truck building what is now I86 in New York state, between exits 29 and 30.  It was a learning experience as only the front axle brakes worked and it had no maxi brake.  I'd crack the hand spike, leave it run and hope the lever didn't vibrate and release the brakes.  More than once I chased it down as it rolled away.  It taught me to really respect brakes and that it is much easier to stay out of trouble running the road.

I fixed the pictures .....

That truck looks like it has always been a crane. Besides being a lot of work to change it to a tractor, it would just be a shame to break it up. I'm sure someone with the room would love to have it just the way it is. Who couldn't think of about 100 things to use it for ? Also, you don't see too many 7500's with a 5x4. That is a neat truck, I had a lot of time in a '70 7500 with a V6 and air brakes about 35 years ago.

Interesting.  Seems like a ton of work and unless you're really bored I'd pass.  Would be a neat toy to have if you have the room.

BTW, next time put each picture link on a separate line to keep them doing down the page instead of across.  Makes it alot easier to read and look.
