How many of those M601's are still running around over there?  VPW in Iowa bought up a bunch from the Danish Army and one of the oriental countrys several years ago.

Todd,

Not too many I'm afraid. Kinda like the US after WWII, and for a number of reasons, the Israeli government has a policy of not selling any IDF surplus on the home market. So what happens with the old stuff is that it gets scrapped or sold abroad (that's how some European army surplus dealers got ex-IDF M3 half-tracks in the 1990s and why Mack DM 800s are appearing on the market at the moment). Some of the NAI M601 were sold on civvy street but, in general, only for special purposes (why have a kidney destroyer like an M601 when that nice man at the Dodge dealership has a fancy D-Series Power Wagon with doors, heating (!) and proper seats instead?). The ones still about are at the hands of collectors or restorers. You may have better luck with the M-325 (as below) but even these are mostly scrapped or gone to S. America/elswhere...  

Regards,

T

do you guys ever see that black B-75 that belonged to chase out of milo,me. used to see it all over the northeast a ways back and always wondered what happened to it.


I used to run with a guy named Chase, had a black B-61 or 63. We hauled for International Paper corrugated box plant out of Putnam, Ct. around 1975-6. He said his dad and the truck was from Milo, Me. I was running an orange and white '66 White 4000... Small world!

I like the set forward front axle on the Mack. It gives that B80-something a whole new character.

Jeff I'm glad you pointed that axle out.  I kept looking at that B80? and wondering what he did to make it look so different.  The hood doesn't quite look right either.  I think he made it.  he should put the emblems back on.  The more I look at it I think the cab is on a newer chassis.

MPowell, your reward is coming because you have a great goal! I will never forget the two years I spent building my 79 Long nose A-model. Ground up, blank set of rails, used cab that I rebuilt, new hood, got to pick my WB, colors, powertrain and everything else. At that time I had to wait with the truck done for a month for my six inch elbows, they were the first ones in production, small now! 30 years old rolling down the road with my "hood" KTTA700, I was too cool! passing all the "little trucks" on the hills. have fun.

Scott, I think you should get that truck back, its like a child.

We do have a problem in the East with people running beaters on antique plates. I have worked on the problem for

clients with the Legislature and it eventually gets solved by law enforcement. It's speculation to suggest that kind of action or the others suggested has affected or does effect rates for insurance......been practicing law for 52 years,collecting trucks for 25 years. I would however expect a company to deny coverage if plates were being misused in the case of accident.

I remember seeing, in the 1950s, a Pennsylvania iron hauler that had the spare tire mounted on the bumper of his Autocar. On the tire in large white letters was painted the word "LATEX".

Found this 1978 Big Bunk Pete 352 in a barn south of Tulsa last year. Farmer told me he bought it years ago from a diesel shop. It ran over the road for years pulling a reefer and the shop ended up with it with a blown engine. The farmer put the bed on it and told me he still has fun driving it during harvest.

This is from a couple months back.  Took my 1951 L195 Wrecker and my dad (in the picture) along to get a 1960 R-190.  It was only 250mi or so, but it handled the truck fine.  The former owner/builders name is on the door, I believe they made the wrecker boom and bed as well, but am not sure, it is definitely a one-of set up.  The truck started out it's life as a tandem axle according to the data plate so it was probably a semi in it's original form.  I don't think it had really been worked or used much at all for at least 15 years.  I've put new fenders on it, added spring brakes and redid some of the airlines and fabricated an air tank mounting, among a bunch of other little stuff.  Still has a lot to be done, but it is on the road again at least :)

This wrecker belongs to a friend . The bus in the back was donated to us we are thinking of selling it or parting it out. The wrecker is a mid to late 70s has a fiberglass hood has a Holmes 750 and a Heinz underlift. We are thinking of buying it to replace my Dads Alaskan Hauler. A Peterbilt oh well. If we do get it us "never leaving well alone" will probably strech it put a extended hood and a larger sleeper.

Update on the dead KW K100 beside the road:

On my way to work yesterday approx 4:15 PM, the poor thing was STILL there. However, this time there was a white pick-up truck on the grass apron beside it, apparently working on it.  The KW wasn't there on the way home at 1:30 AM.  Sooo... hopefully he's on his way again.  Still, he was down about 36 hours, minimum.

I put my '51 IH L-190 to work again a few weeks back for the move from Columbus, OH to Athens, GA. We left out at about 2pm on a Sunday afternoon and arrived in Athens at about 1pm Monday afternoon. 3hrs of that was sleeping and probably an hour to diagnose a lighting issue with the tow lights, but the rest was driving :) I have a top speed of about 55-60 so it was a long, but in a way fun trip. I figure I averaged somewhere around 35mph. I'm just glad that the truck made it fine the whole way, the longest previous trip I had taken was about 250mi round trip.

It definitely is fun seeing peoples reactions as well. The best was a guy in his work van who flew by me only to pull over on the side a ways up, just before I got to where he pulled over he jumped out camera in hand.

We took Interstate the whole way down, I wasn't about to mess with steep mountains on county or even state roads. Interstate has hills, but nothing like you can get on smaller roads. There was already one hill on 75 somewhere that I crawled down in 1st....probably about 5-10mph. Any faster and I would have been pushed down the hill faster than the engine could hold.

The state is replacing a bridge built in 1921 on a 2 lane road I use to get to town --so, I have a big detour until Nov/Dec.  Today, they had 3 contract O/O dumps working hauling loads away from the site.  All were vintage, but still  getting the job done  --A Ford  L'ville, an  Autocar with flat steel front fenders, and a GMC General.  The Autocar looked as if it had seen lots of service, the General was  average, and the L'ville was obviously somebody's pride and joy --old style grill, bright Budds all around, and dark blue paint.

The first pic is of my 1978 359. It runs 2000-3000 miles a week normally grossing 88,000 lbs (AL's max) hauling sand, rock, fertilizer, feed, etc. The funny part is that I have the oldest truck, by far, with the broker I use, yet it is also by far the most reliable. The trailer is also the oldest, a 1988 East. Yes for those wondering, I have had this outfit on its side once, and for hopefully the last time. The next pic is of a friends 1977 A model dump truck. We reworked it a few years ago and it works every day, normally in a 30 miles radius of home. The last pic is of my 1973 K123. As soon as we finished reworking it, dad and I hit the road with it doing what it was originally bought to do, haul livestock. We ran it for a year hauling cattle from here to TX, OK, KS, etc. Then when he retired and I decided to find something closer to home, I ran it with the dump trailer for two years before we got the 359 finished up. Using an old truck every day eases the other problems associated with trucking for me. I can't think of a modern truck I'd swap the 359 or K100 for. I have actually been complimented by a few DOT officers about keeping an old truck in good shape, and now I am very seldom checked.

Just for the record, what is old?


For the purposes of this thread don't sweat it. More and more I think of anything pre-electronic as old. My original thought when I started the thread was some of us spend more than we should just getting our trucks driveable, it's nice to do something with them once and a while besides run to the grocery store or truck show. The thread has evolved into a lot more than that which is great. Keep it coming.

Just so I'm not the one to derail things here's another shot of my truck, this time hauling home auction junk. A really rare Brown and Sharpe Omniversal.



Sorry, wasn't sweating it but I have a hard time keeping up, 80s stuff is still pretty new in my abstract world.lol Lots of 80s and older trucks still on the road around here.

I ran a dump truck this summer for a freind like that but did not have the long front end. We built this one from a cement mixer and if a tought old truck.

Sounds like a DM600. This is a DM800.

    I cant say but it got a 18000 front axle and doubble fram 1800 drive line and 56000 lbs rears and a 237 and i am going to put a 12 speed in it and a air/air cooler and make a 285 out of it next summer. Right now there is no work for it.The part i like about it is when haulingf rock it will get in the roughs were those air rides just get in your way and some of them old rough roads dont hurt it any. after ride in it this summer i think iam ready to brak horses again.

this twin front axle KW mixer that Scott posted - how much a standard model is that?  I'm assuming a C 500, twin steer might be a factory option, but the fenders look a little improvised - because of the front hydraulic pump?

This is my old truck getting ready to earn it's keep.  I've made a few changes on it,, mostly trying to lighten it up a lil bit.  Got rid of that 2 ton Alaska bumper (kept the hitch though),,,  cut off a couple hundred pounds of boiler plate behind the sleeper,,  turned the smaller of the 3 fuel tanks into my oil tank.  Oh yeah,,,  the beacon light got the ax too. Still got the remains of that Southwind on the back, in these pics.  This is the trailer I drug home from Ill. last Friday,,,  good or bad,, it's what I'm gonna use...   Lets hear the comments......

I too like to check out the profiles and see where the folks are from.  I keep an Atlas near my computer and get it out often to see where someone lives.  After all, this site is about like a pen pal club and surely people like to know where their pen pals are from.  I also enjoy seeing the birthdates of everyone.  I like to see how many young folks like Drew Waller have became addicted to trucks and I also like to see how many are older than I am.  It's a small number.  I'm really looking forward to turning 70 next year and I'm also looking forward to celebrating my 40th anniversary in 2011.  Dad lived to be 90; I should have a few more good years in me.  LOL   Now, if only I had a few grandkids to spoil.
 

I agree with ya John, about seeing where people are from and their ages. 

This seems like a good time to ask this.  Does anybody here knowwhatever happened to the young feller that was going to college full-time but owned a real nice COE that he worked part-time?  As usual, I can't remember his name.  He might be here (new forum), but I doubt it.

75 ford LT9000, 365 small cam, 13 speed.  Been there, done that.

Think its about a 63 Ford T750, 391, 5x3 on walking beam.  Hauls rock like a dream, and you cant hurt it.

73 KW, 400 BCIII, 13 speed, 4.6 on walking beam, great truck.

80 Superliner, 400 BCIII, 5X4 airshift, 4.44 on camelbacks, double frame, big front end, hell of a truck.. toting my baby cat out of a mud hole.

40492,

That really IS a great looking IH 4300!!!!  And 30 years in the same truck is something to be really proud of!

Just wondering what motor, how many rebuilds, transmission etc....??????  How many overall miles on that truck!??

GEOFF


Well first thing is this is what it looked like originally.

 

It was a glider kit with a 350 cummins,12513 tranny, 4 spring,34'' bunk, somewhere around 215'' wheelbase.

Now it has a big cam 3 400, 14613, International air ride, 60'' stand-up, 270'' wheelbase.

Somewhere around 2 million miles, which isn't alot for that age, but the first 11 years all it did was haul in a 50 mile radius on construction jobs.

Here's a couple more trucks I had leased to me about 5 years ago.

Well it's not as big as most of the stuff in this thread....but I am making it earn it's keep.  1964 F-250 on a 70's F-350 chassis.  Ford 400 with NP435, rear is a DANA 70 with if I remember right 3.54 ratio....so once I can get up to speed I can cruse pretty easy at 65-70.  It's fun going up the mountains at 30mph though :D

This is the second trip from Ohio to Georgia....4 or so more to go.  This trip I had an '83 Camaro and '48 International KBS8-1 with a replacement cab on the back.

I passed this truck Monday night on the Mass Pike.Pulled into the service area so I could watch him go by and he pulled in behind me.1960 Kenworth.Had a 1958 262 Cummins.Forgot to ask what transmission.He had put air to air on it and had electric fans to cool it.Said it was a little underpowered but that was the price to be cool!what else was cool was the load he was hauling.A 1918 steam roller.It looked immaculate! The best part is they drove it onto the trailer under it's own power.I couldn't get pictures of it because it was dark and the roller was black.The pictures I did take aren't the best.Look for him at Huntsville.He is from Ontario Canada.He wasn't sure if his truck would be welcomed because it wasn't all original.I told him,"You take it and see if you're welcome.":D

That Jake pedal was ( is? ) an option, we used to call them snow pedals or canadian pedals since most of the quebec guys had them.

In theory, when its slick you dont have to worry about the jake coming on until you step on the pedal.In reality, you can do the same thing by staying in control of the throttle and clucth pedals, or by just turning the switch on and off, lol.John

Here's our sort of old "Autocar".  I call her the pride of the fleet.  Just rolled over 1 million 14k ago, been layed on her side twice, only had one inframe at 650k, Volvo rearends haven't been touched except for seals.  Ok, here's the funny part, I got stopped today for a level 1 roadside inspection.  Except for three borderline tires it passed with flying colors.  I think the DOT guy was more surprised than I was.   We were hauling railroad ballast which loads light so it looked heavy but I was only 69,500 which is well under legal of 73k.  Surprisingly he took my word for it and didn't get out the scales even though I didn't have a scale ticket (maybe I should go into sales).  Brakes were all in adjustment, lights all worked, fire extinguisher was good, low air buzzer came on, etc.  Got back to the shop and my head was so big I could hardly get out of the truck.  Even gave her a pat on the hood.

For being the butt of a lot of jokes it's actually a good truck.  We can scale 22.1 ton with it full of fuel.  Plus it's fun to drive with the Big Cam 400 and the 13 speed.

Mike,

Looks sharp, like the beehives.Now all you need are dual air cleaners so you can put some lights in front of them, just wouldnt look right having air cleaner lights on just one side.John


I've got a truck with dual cans. Just need to start working on it. I start to get ideas about stretching out my little green truck adding a bunk, dual stacks, this and that. Then I remember, wait, you have a big truck. That little 182" WB single stack is a perfect workhorse, especially on job sites with the dump box. Its easy to see out of, easy to maneuver, and gets good mileage. I'm always the youngest driver in the oldest truck every plant, elevator or quarry I haul in or out of, but I'm making a living.

Hey folks,

  Catchin' up a bit here.

 Dean, I think that first A-car pic you posted was at the '08 show in Hutch. If I remember right he's also an ATHS member, from the NE maybe, think maybe Mass, and pulls an enclosed car-hauler. It its the one I'm thinking, he built the truck from the frame up, later gear and such. Beautiful work too.

Hey Ryan, thats a nice Peterbilt 362 Cabover. It could be as old as 1981, that's when they changed over from the 352. Nice paint job too.

Finally, I have some pictures of my own work truck working again! This was at a sam's club in Worcester Mass, I delivered to late friday night, my third delivery so far, the first weekend out I took a little trip to Norwalk Conn. just a stone's throw from New York on I-95, probably the farthest this truck has ever been away from home! Ran like a champ though! It's great putting it back to work and getting to drive it again instead of just sitting around. The video is of me pulling out of the plant which is a hard pull from a standing stop, It was really nice out so both windows were down to get the "stereo" sound from both 6" stacks:D

Noted in Frederick, MD earlier this week-- and early KW, narrow nose, fiberglass tilt hood, with 4 headlights -2 per oval bucket- in the fenders --year??? It was pulling a flat deck trailer and had a polished alum. sleeper with horizontal ribs. On the back of the sleeper it said "The way it used to be" and on the door of the cab, "Mr. Retro". It definitely was a working truck.


Richard, That's Mike Schade, aka "The Reo Kid." Awesome ride and a super cool guy. Met him face to face at Winchester last year. When I was a kid I remember seeing him on the road. He used to have a Diamond REO with a big bunk.

This isn't an antique but soon will be I'm sure within the next few years.It is owned by a guy up here that has been in transportation all his life.His father had a fleet of ,,,well let's just say they wouldn't go far without being pulled over by the DOT today but they got the job done in the 60's and early 70's.Then they went into the charter coach business.For a while the busses weren't much better,I know because I drove for them.They now have a fleet of fairly new coaches and have a steady run to Foxwoods from Maine everyday.Billy however has more of his father's ways in him and bought a junkyard and uses this truck to haul scrap with.I guarantee this truck earns it's keep.(and then some).She sounds pretty mean with the dual straight pipes.I think I was told it was a 400 Cat but not sure.If it's like anything else Biily has driven,it's juiced up.

Forgot to add, we ended up on the lake below Branson at my brother in laws place for a family get together.  While there my other brother in law runs a trucking company with about 100 or so trucks and he told me they were leasing on an o/o that had a late 70's cabover freightliner. Seems the fellow picked this truck up a few years ago redid everything and replaced with new engine, tranny, rears the hole shootin match. He said for ins. requirements, there shop had to go over it with a fine tooth comb.  He got on and my brother in law couldn't figure why he went from a conv. back to a coe.  But then he's not a truck nut like me.

Thanks for the additional pictures especially the one when your truck was new, with the loader.  Not often do you see a truck driven by one driver so long.  You  must know every piece on that truck, inside and out!!!!  By the way that's neat to see that Pete 359 beside your truck too.

I grew up in a logging/mining town with 2 strong IH dealers fairly close by.  The majority of local logging trucks were 4300's and they had a good reputation.

Last Friday, I made my last haul for the apple harvest season.  The warehouse I take my apples to is one of the major shippers and  always has a bunch of trucks from all over the country loading and waiting to load.  When I was there Friday, it was getting cold, everyone was letting their trucks idle, I was busy unstrapping my load and I look over and with all the new hum drum boring trucks around the shipping docks here's an old Pete 359 clear up here from Shawnee Oklahoma!  I was proud of the guy and I went over and told him it was cool to see that 359.  I could tell it made his day!  Geez he had a Okie accent, could hardly understand him but he says to me, "most of the drivers now wouldn't know a 359 from a VOLVO!!!!" 

I'll bet you get a lot of similar comments how your truck "stands out" compared to most of the other trucks around!  A lot of COOL FACTOR with your truck!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Cat, neat group of trucks you got there. Love the Kwhop, love the 1/2 acre hood on your supermack.

Erich, from a distance, you can tell the difference btween a 359 and 379 by their air cleaners.  The old niner will have a black air intake pipe coming forward out of the cleaner and turning 90 degrees into the side of the hood.  The 379 will have the pipe going straight into the side of the cowl.(no visible pipe)   The old niners also have a foot step at the rear of the front fenders, and they have the corvette dash.  (personally, I think the corvette has a peterbilt dash!)   badump!

The 86 Volvo F7 I had what looked like a a dimmer switch to activate the exhaust brake. Wasn't as effective as a Jake Brake. But it sure was fun to play with during a DOT inspection. Everytime the inspector heard the brake he thought it was an air leak. Everytime he'd get close to it I shut it off. He'd turn around and I'd turn it back on. :D

Rob,

Just so I did not misunderstand - you mean the very same truck - that's amazing... There are still some of these R600 around - they were assembled in Israel by the now defunct Mack Ashdod, together with the F700 (normal and set back front axle) and the DM 800. Used to be a common sight on the roads.

Tatra: I was in Israel several times during 1987, and 1988 and am quite positive that is the truck I photographed in Haifa. The front pull hanger had a large pin and loop of chain hanging from it at that time. It also had that same spare tire mount. If it is not the same truck, it is a kissing cousin. I noticed several american brand trucks all over Israel and at Ben Gurion airport there were many american trucks in many different roles such as fuelers, sweepers, and tugs. Also seen a lot of american Dodge pickup trucks will Israeli license plates. Most of the new ones had grilles in them that were current in the 1976-1978 timeframe here. I found that odd as this was 10 years later but those trucks appeared to be new at the time.

In Turkey, all of the taxi cabs were either 1955, or 1956 Chevrolet sedans. This was in the same timeframe.

Not sure this truck is working anymore but I do know that a couple years ago this '50 Freightliner was still a yard dog at Empire Warehouse, north of Denver.
I didn't have a chance to get any details but a couple things stand out to me:
1. The big fuel tanks. The one on the other side is just as large.
2. Behind the fuel tank, on the frame, is a shadow from a previous hanger. May have had a pusher at one time.

hey, it did upload...


If you're having a hard time uploading pictures understand there is a 5 Mb limit on the size of the photo. Photos work best if they are in a gif or jpg format. BMP files are huge and take along time to upload.

When you upload a photo it is resized to fit the forums web page. This is done by the forums software when you upload the photo. If the photo is quite a bit larger than 800 X 600 this takes time. If you are using a slower connection it also takes time to upload the larger photo and there is no progress indicator to tell you it's busy working in the background to resize and upload your photo. A progress indicator is being added to the next version of the forums software, hopefully that will make this easier for everyone.

Yup,,  the lime slides better now.   With a red face and a big sigh I'll tell you why..   The guys that installed my wet kit for me didn't put all of the oil in that I took to them..  So me,, being an ancient rookie and not knowing anything, discovered that stuff unloads a lot better when you have enough oil to use the last stage of the cylinder..     Go ahead laugh it up, I have been...  

I got my new headlights installed, added a ground wire.  They're a lot better, but not as good as they should be, especially low beams.  I have not gotten the switches for the lights changed yet.  

I did get the heater fan switches installed.  I had to change the magnetic switch (solenoid) that powers them also.  It's interesting how well that Alaska modified heat system works.  You can turn either switch on low for a few minutes and then you gotta shut it off.  It will run you outta there....  

I bought a new spring,,,  ya mean I gotta change it too?    LOL

Bruce,,    With any luck a picture of the Alaska bumper on the truck will be here in a moment. It was made out of 1/2" thick steel and formed into a deep channel with rounded ends.  It weighed 300#'s.  Somebody produced them back them (or still does) because John Costley posted a pic of a yellow A model that had the same bumper on it..      

http://forums.aths.org/InstantForum2010/Uploads/Images/9c9d2725-9220-4a4e-a479-694e.JPG

The steel behind the sleeper was 1/4" boiler plate, nicely formed and welded.  I assume it was used to keep splash down and to carry tarps and such.  It was heavy,, too heavy to be carryin' around for what I'm gonna do.  

http://forums.aths.org/InstantForum2010/Uploads/Images/a9bd41a9-0c5a-44ea-91a2-f46d.JPG


I have not taken the sleeper off.  I think that would ruin the looks of the truck.. 


Mark,

How about a yellow and green KW ?.The bumper is still an option on B models, though most folks from the northern tier are more used to seeing this style on Western Stars.They will knock down a deer without bending and they will throw it away and down most times.Damned rugged bumpers, but not so great if youre on 5 axles, paid by the ton.John

This is not my truck but in reality, we all own a piece of it. This late '60's Peterbilt 351STL6x6 with 12V71 power still works every day for NASA, along with 3 others like it. These trucks have had new cabs installed, but are otherwise original. The trailers are nitrogen reclamation units. Does anyone know of any other 12V71 powered trucks still working everyday ?

I took all I had to keep from leaving him my f150 and taking the pete, over all it didn't look to bad for an older truck, wish I would have had more of my "free time" so I could have talked to the owner but now that I know about it and know who it is I will get details one of these days, I'm thinking he just picked the truck up from a repair shop up the road was why it was still blowing the trade mark cummins blue smoke.

Must be KW week. Greenland NH. T/A on Saturday. 79 with a cummins, came with a DD. He told me his was a "B" model...I didn't have the time.


"B" model didnt come out till 83. Lots of people think only the long hoods were A models:w00t:


There were some B model '82s A guy I know has one here he bought new. It seems some A and B models got titled as '82's The '82 B model I know of has A model styled steps and A model styled steps on the bottom of the fuel tanks. Kind of a unique truck

I can see the A/B model designation confusion during the transition years (82-83) but a 79 would for sure be an "A" model, not be a "B" model:D  Doug

This is my first post to this topic, but I thought I'd like to say this:

A truck, whether it's old or it's new, is designed for one purpose and that is to work and get the job done.

Personally, I love to see the old workhorses doing their jobs and getting the job done instead of sitting abandoned in the woods or at the junkyard. I really like the ATHS, because were either dedicated enough, or just plain crazy enough to help these old trucks stay on the road. Even if it's just going to shows or as a hobby truck, it's better than filling space in a junkyard or being crushed and turned into a Toyota Yaris or Chevy Aveo. Those econo-cars have their place in the grand scheme of things too, I just think the old "Dogs" should be kept up and not just junked.

Long live the Good OL' American Workhorse Truck!

first thanks for the interest guys    the aaco is  1960  first of the civillian models   aaco, s started with a army contract here and were the first ihc truck designed and built here and they were pretty basic { terrible to get in or out} but could handle the tough oz conditions and the rest is history       aaco was A series . Australian,Cab Over there now acco  this one is a 172 and they made a 182 both 6 cyc gas engine

 pete n kw,s    we never had them till the early 60.s when two seperate guys realized  there potential down here

 laurie o,neal  imported petes and ed cameron  imported  kw,s[s models] and they revoultionized oz truckin

these handfull of original imports are now collector items here!!

 my pete   ?  well i bought this 64  281 of craigslist   sight unseen  went to the states an drove it 300 mile to l.a packed it in a container and got it home  . then thru a conversation with terry klenskie i discovered its history!!!!

it was bought new by darell hannah   - hannah truckin  ivanhoe cal  and driven most of its life by

 john stewart  [ red acar]  john did a story on hannah and this truck in old time trucks mag some time ago

 so i got very lucky first time out . the truck is in amazing condition for its age which can a only be credited to johns care of it in the countless miles he drove number7 !!!!!!!

do you guys ever see that black B-75 that belonged to chase out of milo,me. used to see it all over the northeast a ways back and always wondered what happened to it.

Havent seen that one on the road in a long time.Gordon sold it to a guy that was hauling logs with it in northern Maine.I asked Gordon about it once,about ten years ago.He said he had heard the guy put it in the ditch in a snow storm and twisted it up pretty bad.That truck was built on an Astro chassis with a Cummins and 13 speed.Gordon ran that one, his freind George Sprowl had a B73 or 75 simular to Gordon's, and there was a hot rod H model with a second rear mount radiator in the mix that was driven by a woman,Gordon's wife if I remember right.All three were leased to Coles at one time running all over the northeast back in the '80s.Saw all three parked side by side at Dysarts one subzero morning, idling at daybreak.Wish I'd had a camera, can still see it just fine in my mind,lol.John

Like Brian said the B-42 is most likely steel hauler.  Some of those special cabs had roof hatches so when the truck was load and the doors could not open the driver crawled up through the roof.

A 3-hour 100-mile trip into L.A. from San Diego will still reveal 3-6 359s doing some sort of dirt work, along with the occasional W900 KW and once in a while a '60s Pete or '50s KW, but these are the very last of these allowed in the State due to emissions rules which have ever-tightening exceptions.

My new / old rig, '78 W900 and '10 Timpte, just pulled into the elevator for a load of corn first thing this morning. Between Christmas and New Years I built the light panels under the cab, replaced the factory filler panels. Had a shop with a break make the panels, I drilled for the lights, mounting holes and painted them to match the truck. Also put some red oval lights shining back on the trailer, mounted in store bought stainless brackets. The truck could use a little more light, but it doesn't look so dark pulling that lit up trailer anymore. The 'ol girl's been working hard this week.

Rob,

You don't have the old pic by any chance? If the licence plate is visible, it would be quite easy to compare (Israeli licence plates normally stay with the vehicle during its lifetime).

The D-Series Dodges you saw were assembled by Nazareth Automotive Industries Ltd (yes, that Nazareth), and it's possible they used leftover late 70s sheetmetal to produce new trucks. Most had slant sixes with few 318 and 360 thrown in for good measure. They also used to make Power Wagons and developed the design into the Abir 4x4 (poor man's HUMVEE;)), which features a mixture of US automotive componenets from all the big three... This is still being made, as well as an Israeli version of Chrysler's CJ. I don't think any heavier vehicles are produced (although there was a batch of Navistars a few years back).

Here's a pic of the Abir, which I suppose belongs in this thread - sort off (well, it's really an old Power Wagon with different cloths)!

And that's the first "Command Car" (the WC series was always referred to like this in Israel) NAI produced:

The NAI site is here: http://www.ail.co.il/ail-open/

Cheers,

T

I know I do and will look for them. I've got several boxes of photos to sort and catagorize. I was in an IAI hanger watching the conversion of F4 Phantom fighter jets from J79 series engines, to F404 engines, and was involved a bit it fitting new radars to the airframe. Really enjoyed the work a lot as the people I interacted with were very kind, professional, and took their jobs seriously. It seemed that every vehicle involved in functions on the airport was an american product at that time.

I didn't know the plates stayed with the vehicle during it's lifetime, and will surely look and post when I find it.

yea, i think that pic is from 1982, it was maybe in december, and the truck was just finished, and it was at Parker Transfer in Elryia Oh close to home, the truck wasnt out for a week, and some cookie cutter driver backed into it, putting a hole through the bumper bending up the grill and knocking the cardboard off, if im not mistaken thats why he took that pic. My grandfather drove these roads for 50 years and did what he had to, to bring the paychecks in, he was and is a very well respected steel hauler and didnt need all the flash that most of these *** wipe drivers "need" now or then.

There are some really good looking trucks that you guys see out on the road. There aren't too many older trucks running around my neck of the woods, and when I see them, I don't have my camera ready.

I do have a short video of me leaving the Spencer Show with my '46 IH in tow behind my C-10. I'll have to try snagging a few pictures of something other than my trucks.

Attached are pictures of Lyle Peirce’s 1990 RD688S takenlast Friday morning at the Hood Milk Processing Plant in Portland, Maine. I hadseen the truck on the Interstate a couple of times on my way into work so Istopped, introduced myself, and we talked old trucks for over ½ hour. (The dateon the pictures is incorrect. I had not reset the camera date after changingthe batteries).

The RD688S is Lyle’s favorite truck in the Peirce milkhauling fleet. He works the Mack three to four times a week picking up milk atfarms and transporting the milk to the processing plant (approximately 110 miles from Newport, Maine).

The Mack has over one million miles on it, has been rebuilta couple of times, and can out pull most loaded modern tractors. Lyle noted the400 engine has been tweaked a little.

speaking of winter fronts. my First year driving in cold winter months I made the mistake of putting a cardboard box that had a some sort of paper/plastic label on it. a week later I had to replace it as the wet was getting to it. the cardboard came right off but the plastic had melted or froze into all the cooling fins of the rad. that was a fun 2 hours picking the plastic out.

after that lesson I had a local lady sow me up a proper winterr front for my truck.

At that time I had to wait with the truck done for a month for my six inch elbows, they were the first ones in production, small now! 30 years old rolling down the road with my "hood" KTTA700, I was too cool! passing all the "little trucks" on the hills. have fun.

Don't know if this will catch on or not but I think it would be cool to have everyone post a picture of their working old trucks.  Whether it's shined up or banged up, no matter.  This is one I took yesterday after I got home with a load of Oak.  She really barked!  Other than the sloppy torque rods snapping and popping it handles the weight well.  That's one thing that impresses me about old diesels, they feel totally gutless when empty so you'd think they'd be useless when loaded yet they just grunt like nobody's business.

A couple people have informed me of that thought.  I have seen quite a few single axles with fenders like mine put on round to the front and always thought they looked better round to the rear so I have done both mine like that.  I welded a heavy piece of angle across in front of the fifth wheels to mount the front to and hung rigid poly flaps from that to protect the back of the cab and away we go! To all their own I guess! Thanks

It was a '84,last year for the 4300 I think? non sleeper,Formula 300 with a 9 speed,spoke wheels and 4 spring suspension. It had been traded in at our local Mack dealer from a small local mail hauler than ran mostly Macks and always a couple IH's. It was super clean,but wouldn't pull the hat off your head,changed button in the pump,shimmed it a little and turned RPM's up to 2100 and made a different truck out of it. We swapped out the front hubs and put aluminum wheels on it and a chrome straight pipe. It wasn't my favorite truck we ever had by any means,but I only had to drive it a couple times.

83 Freightliner doing what it is supposed to do.  This one has less than 300,000 on the odemeter as it was owned by a local town for hauling ??? 350 and a 13 speed geared to 68mph.  Short wb to keep it legal with a 40 foot trailer per Iowa's 1983 length laws.

Spring supension, she truely is a freight shaker.

It may not have been, but we were just moving it into the backyard to set it up. I have hauled it down the road like that before, but the last few times I moved it we just loaded it on the trailer.

Well Hello Bruce!!!  I didn't realize you where on this forum.  Last I seen you was 3(?) years ago in line at the bio plant in South Bend, I was driving Jim Cormany's green Pete 359 daycab.  Have you by chance seen Larry Yoder with the burgandy Mack Superliner?  Been thinking about you and him both.  IMHO you too have the nicest looking daily runners in northern Indiana.

By Tatra - Sunday, January 04, 2009 4:57 AM
Rob,

Just so I did not misunderstand - you mean the very same truck - that's amazing... There are still some of these R600 around - they were assembled in Israel by the now defunct Mack Ashdod, together with the F700 (normal and set back front axle) and the DM 800. Used to be a common sight on the roads. Things have changed somewhat since then and the only US manufacturer having a presence on the market is Kenworth. The change has to do with the death of the COE in the US - Israel has tight max length regulations which do not favour conventionals. Also, because of all the mergers, some multi-national truck producers decide it's not worth their while to bother with niche markets (example: you can't get US built Volvo (or Mack) conventionals in Israel for love or money, and Internationals are nowadays only imported for the IDF).

However, because of the robust nature of the pre-electronics US stuff, they tend to survive... and survive, usually at the hands of o/o who cannot quite strech to the price of newer elctronic trucks - also, if something goes wrong, you can repair it relatively cheaply. Here's a couple more, this time Internationals, a 9370 (yes, that's a White Volvo next to it)and a Paystar (a "real" one this time and not one of the Dutch DAFs).

Cheers

The Bison belongs to a repair shop in Fairfield, ME. The hood had to be replaced after a greenhorn killed it (the truck where the hood and some other parts came off is for sale!)
The GMC belongs to a guy out of Woodstock, NB who operates a fuelplace and a campground.

On my way to work yesterday about the same time as mentioned in the previous post, unbelievably, I saw that SAME KW in nearly the same location.  Unfortunately, it was sitting beside the road, dead, and no one around.  This would have been about 4:15 PM.  I got a better look at it: It DOES have a visor, it has square headlights, and a slightly set back front axle.

As the night progressed, I saw an orange Schneider Freightliner COE (set back axle) coming in to Dixie Cup.

On the way home I saw a sad sight: That same green/yellow KW still sitting beside the road at 3 AM in the morning.  (The flatbed is loaded, btw.)

Lastly, as I cruised along on the bypass... over to my right at the Choctaw Truck Plaza was yet ANOTHER cabover!  To far away from it to see it clearly, but it appeared to be a Freightliner. White colored, and under a flatbed. 

Wow. Three COE's in one night!

Just as it crested the top of the hill it broke thru the frost and sunk. With the header as high as it would go, transport mode, it was still mired a foot deep in the mud. 3 big tractors barely pulled it out. It left 6 foot deep ruts to fill back in. Thats stuck!

Here is a 72 L 9000 earning its keep. I can tell you a lot about this truck. It once belonged to us. We were tooling along I-10 west bound on our way through Louisiana circa 1984 when I spotted the truck, I told Alan that was our old truck. I grabbed my camera and snapped the picture as we passed it. On close examination there was no doubt that it was the same one. Look close at the L shaped bracket on the bottom of the battery box. It was a step that Alan had welded in to help get up on the frame of the truck. It had been repainted since we got rid of it, but the paint scheme was still close to what it had originally been

Thanks Michelle.  It was this past Labor day weekend, all Ford event in Columbus Ohio (National Trails Raceway).  It was Thurs evening and not many people there yet, and I walked over the hill to use the facilities and as I walked back up the grade the sun was just setting and everything was glowing orange.  I quickly whipped out the camera phone and took a couple shots.  Unfortunately it doesn't do it justice for what it actually was.   By Friday afternoon the place gets packed in pretty tight and photo opps aren't available like this.  The weather that weekend was perfect to a Tee, no clouds, blue skys and sun.  Wish they were all like that.

One thing I wish was the finish on the trailer was still "shiny".  After 11 yrs, it's faded to matte black and doesn't look as pretty as the early days.  I used to buff/wax it all summer as I was pretty proud of it when I first got it.  I was the first in our group to get a "big" trailer.

I will never for get the old Pick up truck I saw on I65 down in KY a few years ago. I was just south of Louisville Heading up the hill near colesberg? Im passing this pickup truck with a large stack of lumber sticking out about 8' behind the tail gate. The road was concrete and very wavey. the kids behind the wheel were laughing so hard because the front wheels were coming off the ground like a low rider. they were doing about 45mph and I was kinda laughing thinking of the stuff I did as a kid. it was like a slo motion basket ball. the tires would touch then the next bump sent them up about 3" and they would just stay there for about 5 secs and come back down. i think they were stabing the gas pedal to see how far they could ride it out? not safe but funny none the less.

Just for the record, what is old?

For the purposes of this thread don't sweat it.  More and more I think of anything pre-electronic as old.  My original thought when I started the thread was some of us spend more than we should just getting our trucks driveable, it's nice to do something with them once and a while besides run to the grocery store or truck show.  The thread has evolved into a lot more than that which is great.  Keep it coming.

Just so I'm not the one to derail things here's another shot of my truck, this time hauling home auction junk.  A really rare Brown and Sharpe Omniversal.

Rob,

You don't have the old pic by any chance? If the licence plate is visible, it would be quite easy to compare (Israeli licence plates normally stay with the vehicle during its lifetime).

The D-Series Dodges you saw were assembled by Nazareth Automotive Industries Ltd (yes, that Nazareth), and it's possible they used leftover late 70s sheetmetal to produce new trucks. Most had slant sixes with few 318 and 360 thrown in for good measure. They also used to make Power Wagons and developed the design into the Abir 4x4 (poor man's HUMVEE;)), which features a mixture of US automotive componenets from all the big three... This is still being made, as well as an Israeli version of Chrysler's CJ. I don't think any heavier vehicles are produced (although there was a batch of Navistars a few years back).

Here's a pic of the Abir, which I suppose belongs in this thread - sort off (well, it's really an old Power Wagon with different cloths)!

And that's the first "Command Car" (the WC series was always referred to like this in Israel) NAI produced:

The NAI site is here: http://www.ail.co.il/ail-open/

Cheers,

T

 

Your 2nd picture is not a WC Command car.  Its an M601 Power Wagon made for export by Dodge. The Dodge Power Wagon was discontinued in 1968 but they continued to make the open cab M601 units for export to other country as military trucks for several years more.

Here is the pictures of my day today working off mom's spring break to-do list. I hauled home 5000 lbs of 3/4" stone in 3 trips from the concrete plant that I worked at last summer. Moving that much rock in a pickup truck makes me want to get my White on the road even more, I would have got it all done in 1 trip, instead of 3 trips today, and 2 more tomorrow. I also got a video of me riding around on my 1946 International Harvester I-4 that I got from my grandfather a few weeks ago.

On the other side of the globe, this 1976 R600 is still working for an O/O subcontracting for one of the big local haulage companies. Pic was taken by srulik500, an Israeli truck driver who sometimes gives up the luxury (?) of his MAN TGA to drive the Mack to remind himself what it used to be like when he started.

Truck is fitted with a 237 Maxidyne at the moment - yes, there was a 300 bhp "aftercooler" (as they used to call them in Israel) motor in there originally, but that expired and as the work done is not heavy, 237 horses are enough...

Also provided by him are the MHs - they were a popular truck in Israel until Mack decided to kill the model (and then exit the market, but that's another story)... Quite a few are still in use - can't kill 'em with a stick;)

Cheers,

I probably wouldn't do that too many more times - you're likely to break that old Chevy's back!:w00t:

Carl, I started my house in 1974.  I had a '69 F-100 Ford with a 8-foot bed.  After I sealed the basement walls I went for gravel to lay around the base of the walls to lay drainage pipe in.  Pulled into the quarry and told the loader operator to put about a ton of gravel on my truck.  He attacked the pile and dropped the scoop of gravel into my truck.  It squatted down and the tires widened out.  I told him he had put far more than a ton on the truck but he insisted that was a ton.  Pulled on the scales and he had dumped 4400 pounds on me.  I had 25 miles to go and an extremely steep mountain to climb.  That Ford never hesitated but I never loaded it like that again.  I was sure I was going to ruin some tires but they held up.

I don't really know A whole lot about the old L H. On February 1, 1951 the Salt lake branch sold the L H to H. B. Bryan of Cheyenne WY. I think he leased it to Safeway stores. The fellow I bought it from had A log book from that era that showed trips from California to Denver for Safeway. It was originally painted dark green, like it is now, which I remember Safeway trucks in the 60's color. At one time it was in the oilfield, that is where the fenders came from. The fellow I bought it from used it hauling logs to his sawmill in Paonia Colorado.

Wonder why they need a 6 X 6 for this job?  Do they need to reclaim out in the boonies in case of a crash?

Dean, I've never gotten a good answer to that question. The Space Center had been in existance for less than 10 years when these trucks were spec'd ,so perhaps many of the roads were still dirt and unimproved. It reminds me a little of the WW2 Army Air Force semi tankers which all had all wheel drive tractors for working in the grassy and dirt aircraft parking areas.

It's all about the abuse of antique license plates, You can restore a 1947 Autocar or a 1952 LJ Mack call anyone of the antique truck insurance providers and they will insure the truck with a photo of the truck and a check from you. Now call them with a 1979 Ford L series or an 81 Pete and they don't want to hear about it. Why because this vintage truck is still being used for everyday commerce, nothing preventing you from hooking up to a trailer and using it to move your brother in law 5 miles down the road. I don't know about Ohio or out in the midwest but out here in the East I see abuses everyday people with antique plates for everyday drivers going back and forth to work. Remember once you pay the insurance company your payment they are on the hook for any damage you due that $400.00 payment can cost them millions they can deny your damages due to miss use of the vehicle but they still have to pay the liability end of the loss. For every old truck lover that plays by the book there's three others out there trying to skirt the law. John has asked me to try and find a company that will insure not so older tractors but I can tell you now there will be tough restrictions as to use it may be a case where it will be insured while it's in your driveway or garage but when you plan on taking it to a show or convention or on tour you will have to notify them where and how far you are going and additional coverage will be required this would prevent miss use of towing your best friends tractor down the road on a trailer.. With the billions of dollars the companies are paying out due to the Sandy losses you can expect all insurance to go up and we are going to find it harder to get coverage. You can go on anyone of the salvage web sites and put in antique or classic salvage and you will see thousands of vehicles that went under salt water in the NJ NY metro area.

Todd,

Not too many I'm afraid. Kinda like the US after WWII, and for a number of reasons, the Israeli government has a policy of not selling any IDF surplus on the home market. So what happens with the old stuff is that it gets scrapped or sold abroad (that's how some European army surplus dealers got ex-IDF M3 half-tracks in the 1990s and why Mack DM 800s are appearing on the market at the moment). Some of the NAI M601 were sold on civvy street but, in general, only for special purposes (why have a kidney destroyer like an M601 when that nice man at the Dodge dealership has a fancy D-Series Power Wagon with doors, heating (!) and proper seats instead?). The ones still about are at the hands of collectors or restorers. You may have better luck with the M-325 (as below) but even these are mostly scrapped or gone to S. America/elswhere...  

Regards,

T[/quote]

 

Thats good to know they are in the hands of collectors. VPW brought back many trucks and tons and tons of NOS parts a few years back. Other then the open cab they share everything the civilian Power Wagon. Theres a few of those M601's for sale in the states.

On the other side of the globe, this 1976 R600 is still working for an O/O subcontracting for one of the big local haulage companies. Pic was taken by srulik500, an Israeli truck driver who sometimes gives up the luxury (?) of his MAN TGA to drive the Mack to remind himself what it used to be like when he started.

Truck is fitted with a 237 Maxidyne at the moment - yes, there was a 300 bhp "aftercooler" (as they used to call them in Israel) motor in there originally, but that expired and as the work done is not heavy, 237 horses are enough...

Also provided by him are the MHs - they were a popular truck in Israel until Mack decided to kill the model (and then exit the market, but that's another story)... Quite a few are still in use - can't kill 'em with a stick;)

Cheers,

T

Back in 1988 I took photos of that R model Mack in Haifa, Israel. Doesn't look much different now than then. It was sitting beside a building and I seen it from the bus were were traveling on. We were doing the "walking tour" and there were a lot of american trucks along with Mercedes all over the country.

  Thanks for the comments on the Westcoaster. It is a blast to drive. An updated Cummins gives it the power you need to keep up with the interstate crowd today.
   The Autocar is at Jolly farmer in Poland Maine. The drivers door is from the old Autocar Doggett got rid of about 10  years ago. I think he's still running the other one.
   The Bucyrus Erie crane is one that I bought in Vermont about 2 years ago. I finally got a chance to get it home. It has a smooth running old Caterpillar. The shovel attachment is still in Vermont.
   Here are a couple more pictures.

The Bison belongs to a repair shop in Fairfield, ME.

I like the Bison with the Bentz sleeper.  On a side note I did hear today that Bentz is all but out of business.  I was sorry to hear this.  They had shifted towards Fire Apparatus after IHC went to Intergal sleepers, but now they have trouble meeting industry mandates on safety.  Too bad, been in the Ft Wayne, IN area for a long time.

In Israel again, this FLB has seen better days but is still earning someone money (pic by srulik500).

The International is better kept but that goes for the rest of the operator's fleet (K100Es)

And another one of these Acars but note the integral sleeper (last two pics by A. Kaspy). That traditional type of truck (steel suspension, no electronics and big (22"-24") split wheels is slowly dying out over there now that you have emission regulations people take seriously and :w00t: Bud alloy wheels which do not shatter...

Temporary fuel truck brought down from Idaho to work out of the Brigham City, Utah Staker/Parson pit... '80 Kenworth with a Cummins and a newer fifteen speed. Sure was a neat truck I thought. I liked the tachometer in four hundred increments. Also, maybe it's just because I'm young and dumb, but I'd never seen a jake brake pedal on the floor before. How common was that? I don't think I'd like it as much as the usual trucks without, but it was a cool thing to experience. Woulda been cooler if it were a long hood too!:cool:

He's replaced the engine and front axle and runs it daily. The paint is all origional with the primer showing thru. Norm is the real mans trucker.

When a truck rolls like this is it usually parted out? Going by above image a new hood/cab are required, possibly the sleeper too if there is a chance to rebuild it. I realize every wreck is different but imagine roll overs are most likely cost prohibitive to fix as opposed to getting a replacement truck in most cases.


Usually it depends on age/mileage of vehicle and how badly the frame, engine, tranny & rears are damaged.  I have seen trucks rebuilt that had the hood, cab & sleeper knocked completely off of the chassis but the frame was straight and drive train wasn't hurt. Then again I seen a truck that had rearended another and was a total loss due to the engine & trans both being damaged, but the cab was still square with a few dents, of course the hood was killed...

Tony B, I thank you for all the pics. I know even among those of my own kind it sounds corny but I get get goosebumps about running down the road in my "hood". I've only had it hooked up to a trailer once since day since I owned it. I keep driving junk trucks making the cash to get my W9 on the road. I get off on the pride of running down the road in something like that, especially a long wb, cat powered long hood.

Glad you enjoy, there's still a few old trucks out here. I don't catch all of them but I get what I can.

I think about the newer trucks being more comfortable but I quickly snap out of it. I ran with a buddy last week, he thinks he's 95 pete is something. After a few days, it was getting to him. Everywhere we stoped guys wanted to talk old truck and take pics.

Here's my '66 Chevy C-10 being put to work. I think I crossed the scales with 1600 lbs in the back, I was around 5300 gross. I have a few other pictures that I haven't taken off of my camera just yet from last weekend. I have been building a parking spot for my White and I got a load of softball or larger sized rocks to ring the gravel pad with from my grandpaw's house. I don't know how heavy I was, but I do know that I didn't get over 40 mph for the whole 12 mile trip back.

Brittany did take a video of us leaving with the rocks, I hope to have it up on YouTube this weekend. All you can hear is the engine roaring, the transmission whining, and multitudes of rattles and you can see me grinning the whole way down the road (yes, I was having fun).

I don't remember who said it on another thread here: "Farm truck: overloaded and underpowered."

Here are a few more of my Chevy that I took over Spring Break. Mom wanted some gravel added on to where my brother and I park in the driveway, I figured that 1 load of 1500-1800 lbs of 3/4" gravel would do it, but I horribly under-estimated it. It took 3.09 tons in 4 trips to the concrete plant to get it all done.

I told Mom that I could have got it done with one trip in my White, and she agreed, but said that she would be retired by the time I got it going and made it back home with the load. She's quick with her comebacks. :P

I'll have several more to post in 2 weeks when I go to the Spencer Show. I'm putting trailer brakes on the Chevy right now so that I can take my IH with me. Stopping a 5000# tractor on a 2000# trailer with only hydraulic drum brakes isn't something that I care to repeat any time soon.

Rob,

You don't have the old pic by any chance? If the licence plate is visible, it would be quite easy to compare (Israeli licence plates normally stay with the vehicle during its lifetime).

The D-Series Dodges you saw were assembled by Nazareth Automotive Industries Ltd (yes, that Nazareth), and it's possible they used leftover late 70s sheetmetal to produce new trucks. Most had slant sixes with few 318 and 360 thrown in for good measure. They also used to make Power Wagons and developed the design into the Abir 4x4 (poor man's HUMVEE;)), which features a mixture of US automotive componenets from all the big three... This is still being made, as well as an Israeli version of Chrysler's CJ. I don't think any heavier vehicles are produced (although there was a batch of Navistars a few years back).

Here's a pic of the Abir, which I suppose belongs in this thread - sort off (well, it's really an old Power Wagon with different cloths)!

And that's the first "Command Car" (the WC series was always referred to like this in Israel) NAI produced:

The NAI site is here: http://www.ail.co.il/ail-open/

Cheers,

T

It's a bandana, that goes way back to my dad's first autocar in '74, on the DC models, that radiator cap is real (mine isn't) and one day his started to leak and he always carries a bandana with him, so he tied it around the cap to keep antifreeze from spraying on the windshield when going down the road. It kinda stuck so every autocar since '74 that we've owned, has had a color coordinated bandana around the radiator cap

I notice all your dad's trucks have a nice skid plate up under the engine. What's that for? Straddling windrows?

Thats factory Autocar engineering. They want to protect the front oil pan sump from any obstruction.

If you guys want to see an old truck earning it's keep, than you should check out my vids on youtube where we are moving the shaker around with my 67' F600 dump, than we hook it to the shaker and start screening topsoil with it! If you type in Earth Shaker or carlbesola in the search box it should come up. there is also a vid of my dog earning his keep on there also. I don't know how to post links yet. Thank you very much:cool:

Nice A model,think it is overheight?LOL

I never could understand why a guy has a nice truck and gets out of it do something and leaves the door open.I see guys on the scales at the quarry or sand plant getting their tickets or tarping leaving that door open.If I have to tell a driver more than twice to keep it closed the third time he hits the road.

 

   So,for a non-commercial driver....what is the significance of the door open statement?Obvious things like door weight could damage the rig?some idiot could jump up in there and haul butt in a 1/4 million dollar combo with a million bucks on the deck?dirt and grim or critters get up in there?A steering wheel holder knock the door off?

Some years ago, someone appeared at the Macungie show with  "two-per-side" pipes -- can't recall the make of truck.  I thought it really looked good  then and it looks good on the Mack as well. Looks as if they used a piece of 6" sq. tube across the top of the frame, and probably had 5" in. short pieces on top of the sq. tube to attach the vertical stacks.  Todd's Mack is very "trucky", no??

Todd,

Sorry for not being clearer - I meant the name "command car" was used in Israel as a generic ref to all these types... You are absoulutely correct the true designation was M-601.

T

 

 

How many of those M601's are still running around over there?  VPW in Iowa bought up a bunch from the Danish Army and one of the oriental countrys several years ago.

Great stuff so far.  Anyone have an old dump truck?  Haven't heard from UP Carl in a while have we?
Had a pretty busy year! We moved approximately 20,000 cu. yds. of dirt with my old Mack and my old Ford in Ewing pines subdivision this year, plus a couple of other jobs that we had to move quite a bit of fill. I wish I'd have got more pics of the E.P. project, as it is I only got a few. It was apprx. 1600 feet of roadway, 35 feet wide and we had to undercut 3 ft. of clay the entire stretch and replace with class 2 sand. Fortunately the other side of the property had the right sand and it was just a matter of taking the clay out and the sand back, then we used the clay to fill the sand pits back in. They paved it in the last week of october, but I still have some cleanup work to do in the spring.

When a truck rolls like this is it usually parted out? Going by above image a new hood/cab are required, possibly the sleeper too if there is a chance to rebuild it. I realize every wreck is different but imagine roll overs are most likely cost prohibitive to fix as opposed to getting a replacement truck in most cases.


Usually it depends on age/mileage of vehicle and how badly the frame, engine, tranny & rears are damaged.  I have seen trucks rebuilt that had the hood, cab & sleeper knocked completely off of the chassis but the frame was straight and drive train wasn't hurt. Then again I seen a truck that had rearended another and was a total loss due to the engine & trans both being damaged, but the cab was still square with a few dents, of course the hood was killed...

T.


had a cousin lay a new 379 down years ago,...tore it up good,hood cab an sleeper...messed frame up too,..he bought a  new glider for parts an fixed it an drove it few years then traded it for a kw


My cousin wasn't as lucky.......all they salvaged was a set of low milage drive tires.

By Art387 - Saturday, February 11, 2012 4:43 PM
Honestly, I have never seen it before rolling. That was my "first time" :-)
Did quick research to find out that CruiseLiner it was but then I have learned it came from Mack "F" line
Now, the problem with "F" is that it was pictured in some comic book I was reading when was 9 and it really stuck in my mind. Now I  think it' one of the reasons for what I'm doing... I wish I could see it on the road some day...

Also a couple of my old Pete bringing home my 36 FWD and moving a Terex. Then last of all Mobil Batch Plat #1  a 50 Studebaker dumper. Hope this is an OK way to post pics. Let me know. Jay

Didn't they wind up sitting behind Chases house in the pasture?No seriously,,I'm not just saying they were put out to pasture,,i think I went by his house and saw them sitting out there.long time ago though,can't really remember where it was.

Rob,

Gordon's house was ( is? ) on youre left on RT.16, coming from Dover-Foxcroft into Milo.All I know is what I remember Gordon telling me when we were both hauling out of Jolly's.Could be it sat out behind the house for a while before he sold it.Gordon is still pulling a livefloor,has a fairly new blue and black Mack, big C made out of lights on the grill.If you see him around give him a hollar.Not sure if Sprowl sold his, or if he took the bunk off and it became one of the Bs he was using to haul trusses,had 2 or 3 of them running at the same time for a while.Not sure what ever happened to the H model.John

He wanted to know if we could replace his complete exhaust system up to his motor as he called it with duel 8" chrome. The forman said no because we dont sell it and it would be late tonight before they could do any thing with it any way.

Yes Stan, this is the same Autocar.  (see pg 5 of the Fifteenth Collector's Special Issue of ATHS Show Time).  The truck stop picture was taken by George Davenport as Brett stopped in Tulsa.  They had a great visit and George has a lot of info on the truck and owner.

The assembly on the other Acar is used by a lot of house movers to winch up houses.  Bolster beam is removed and the "A" frame is let down with the winch till it is supported by the rearmost frame of the truck.  Will winch up a tremendous load.

Block under the back bumper and if anything breaks, it will kill everything big enough to die.  We used hydraulic jacks because the winch method may do a lot of damage to the house by sagging the main beams and then hump them the other way when set on the dollies.

Nah, she's a tough old girl and can take it. That's the concrete plant that I worked at the last 2 summers and all of the other employees know me and what I'll put my truck through. The third picture was my last load for that day and I crossed the scales at 2040# in a short bed (that's about as heavy as I'll go b/c the tires were starting to mushroom out). :D

In all seriousness, I'm looking to buy a pair of the OE half-leaf style overload springs for my truck this summer because I know that my grandpaw's trailer with the IH on it will want to make my truck squat a good bit if I get it too far forwards on the trailer. Plus I won't have to listen to my spare tire carrier scrape pavement when I leave a parking lot and it will steer like it ought to, not the vague "lets aim it over that way while I stare into the clouds" that I've grown used to.

  Here's a little more to add to what goldnugget#61 & Fred has said. The 359's aluminum center strip between the windshields, usually can see that a mile away, kind of stands out. Although a lot of 379's have aftermarket stainless stuck-on surrounding the entire glass. Where the wipers are parked, if it's at the center of windshield, definitely a 359. If they are parked low check the driver side, points left it's a 359. If it points right (same as pass. side) it's a 379. '77-'87 359 usually can see the top of the rounded dash through the lh windshield, but by that time you all ready know what it is, just trying to guess the age by then. 359's have 3-piece roofs, 379 1-piece. If it has the original bumper, 359 has two tow hooks, 379 has one in the center but a lot of times it's covered by the front plate. Headlights too if original 359 are on top of brackets, 379 housing/bracket kind of all one piece looking. 379's only came with rectangle headlights originally. 359's had single or dual round, along with dual rectangle (option in '78 or so & up) that were almost always crooked & looked like ET'S head. 359's had marker lights on the fenders, 379 didn't. If it has the original sleeper, a 359 will have a full size door on the right side to match the left. 359's have a 8" wide, ribbed strip down the center of the hood, 379's are real narrow. 359's have a rectangle vent on the lh cowl (exactly the same as the sleeper vents) & a rectangle air scoop on the rh cowl.

That's enough for now!

This is from a couple months back.  Took my 1951 L195 Wrecker and my dad (in the picture) along to get a 1960 R-190.  It was only 250mi or so, but it handled the truck fine.  The former owner/builders name is on the door, I believe they made the wrecker boom and bed as well, but am not sure, it is definitely a one-of set up.  The truck started out it's life as a tandem axle according to the data plate so it was probably a semi in it's original form.  I don't think it had really been worked or used much at all for at least 15 years.  I've put new fenders on it, added spring brakes and redid some of the airlines and fabricated an air tank mounting, among a bunch of other little stuff.  Still has a lot to be done, but it is on the road again at least :)

Speaking of trucks earning their keep, my truck did a little money earning yesterday. I have a car collector friend in Giddings that had bought a 63 Falcon in Round Rock this past weekend. He ask me Sunday night if I would go and pick it up for him on Monday. He paid me quite well for the 175 mile round trip. Here are a few pictures.

His wife went with me and we had stopped of lunch at Elgin.

The other three pictures are when we were unloading it.

Update on the dead KW K100 beside the road:

On my way to work yesterday approx 4:15 PM, the poor thing was STILL there. However, this time there was a white pick-up truck on the grass apron beside it, apparently working on it.  The KW wasn't there on the way home at 1:30 AM.  Sooo... hopefully he's on his way again.  Still, he was down about 36 hours, minimum.

I've just gotta tell you I really like the pic's you post on this forum!!

I just bought the IH 1210 pickup that our local little town fire dept. made into a little pumper back in 1974, was the talk of the town back then. I remember it SO WELL!!!! The other fire trucks were 1946 and 1948 models. So this 1973 brand new pickup was like I say, the talk of the town!

I've been up 4 straight nights saving my apple and pear crops from frost, then work all day too! When I get more adept on the computer I've got to post pics of my 2 Loadstars that are still at work along with a couple more of my IH's.

Drive Careful! By the way, I noticed the John Deere insignia on the grill, gotta love it!

The 86 Volvo F7 I had what looked like a a dimmer switch to activate the exhaust brake. Wasn't as effective as a Jake Brake. But it sure was fun to play with during a DOT inspection. Everytime the inspector heard the brake he thought it was an air leak. Everytime he'd get close to it I shut it off. He'd turn around and I'd turn it back on. :D

Last year when we finished my Dad's Kenworth Alaskan Hauler with new zacklift we thought that our old 1962 Kenworth wrecker was suppose to retire. I went to the DMV and tried applying for Historical Vehicle License our luck was that we could not get a complete application in. As many know the Alaskan Hauler sold and I went to the DMV last week. Needless to say the old 62 is licensed and working again. Guess retirement is on hold for now.She is out and about towing again. That is a 1979 MCI MC9 that we are parting out.

My 62 KW has had a pretty good life the last 30 years. Was owned by a farm chemical dealer and used occasionally to move the 40ft anhydrous ammonia tanker around to local farms. They sold it to a local farmer that used it during wheat harvest to haul his and some others grain to the elevators. I talked him out of it in 2002. Pulled tandems out and added single axle with air ride, 3.55 ratio. Pulled 335, 5X3 trans and installed a twin turbo 475 Cummins with 7spd main and 4 speed 1241D aux. List goes on powersteering, rewire, replumb. 12ft service box, Auto crane, welder etc. Summer use only anymore as new job is teaching diesel technology at community college, way easier on my "used up" back. I do drive it to school alot when the weather is good, no de-icer model! Put 8k miles on it last summer out fixin. Haul my old 39 Chevy gasser to the drags with it also, pulls it just fine.

I know I do and will look for them. I've got several boxes of photos to sort and catagorize. I was in an IAI hanger watching the conversion of F4 Phantom fighter jets from J79 series engines, to F404 engines, and was involved a bit it fitting new radars to the airframe. Really enjoyed the work a lot as the people I interacted with were very kind, professional, and took their jobs seriously. It seemed that every vehicle involved in functions on the airport was an american product at that time.

I didn't know the plates stayed with the vehicle during it's lifetime, and will surely look and post when I find it.

Rob - I'm looking forward to see that and other pics you have from Israel... This may bring back some memories, hehe (I hope the moderators allow momentary lapses from the subject matter of the ATHS...):

The first thing I look at is the windshield. The 359 has more rounded corners and the  cabs were more narrow than 379 cabs. 379s windshields are taller and squared off.  359 hoods are level from the firewall to the radiator. 379's have a slight slope.

When a truck rolls like this is it usually parted out? Going by above image a new hood/cab are required, possibly the sleeper too if there is a chance to rebuild it. I realize every wreck is different but imagine roll overs are most likely cost prohibitive to fix as opposed to getting a replacement truck in most cases.


Usually it depends on age/mileage of vehicle and how badly the frame, engine, tranny & rears are damaged.  I have seen trucks rebuilt that had the hood, cab & sleeper knocked completely off of the chassis but the frame was straight and drive train wasn't hurt. Then again I seen a truck that had rearended another and was a total loss due to the engine & trans both being damaged, but the cab was still square with a few dents, of course the hood was killed...

There was a 2 part series in "Diesel" magazine on the Pete/KW story a year or two ago. I'm sure I kept it so I have to find it and send it on. But you already said more detail than I remember.

I knew your ACCO was an early one because it has the deep fibreglass "bonnet" instead of the tin one.
As an apprentice, I worked on the Army Mark3's and Mark5's in a Government workshop in Brisbane.
I even actually saw an original Mk 1 (one of the prototypes) which had a hand made welded cab almost identical to the production models.
When I was a tour driver on Fraser Island, I broke a front axle in my bus on the eastern beach and had to take my group back to the western side in the spare that was kept at the resort. You guessed it.......a Mk 3.
The petrol engines in the Army models always smoked and used oil because the contract required bore clearances that were greater than IH's wear limits. The reason was that if the truck got shot-up , it would keep going long enough to get to safety without water or even oil. I worked on some pretty ugly ones that came back from Vietnam, but none that were shot-up.

Cheers. Maurie

Ricky,

I'm not a cabover guy BUT I've gotta say, that Pete of yours is about as CLASSIC old school as it can be!!  I even like the single stack!  Beautiful truck sir, a head turner that is for sure.

Are those frame rail bolt heads polished or what, they really stand out in that one picture?  Thanks for sharing pics of that great old truck.  Glad she's still hard at it!  By the way, what motor, drivetrain are in it?

i know this truck isn't mine although it was supposed to, im still very affiliated with it, and Randy and i are very close friends, so i thought id show everyone what it looked like when we got it in 1982 what it looked like after my Gramps got it done and put it to work, and of course what it looks like now, i have alot more pics if ya wanna see.

Hey Kid.  Don't tighten the screws on that sleeper yet.  This is what you need, right here.  This truck operated out of a yard east of Joplin, between Diamond, Mo. and Neosho, Mo.  The guy was working on a Westcoaster International as well,  but everything disappeared a few years ago.  Anybody in Missouri know what happened to this guy and his equipment???

Big John, what does the Marmon haul and where??  Is he hauling fuel from Shreveport to gas stations in the Texarkana area??  Everytime I see him  we are coming in from a trip to Arkansas on a Sunday evening and he is headed northbound on Hwy. 71 south of Texarkana.


I think you are correct, Shreveport to Texarkana. Very nice guy and loves his old truck. Ran it OTR for years before going regional/local. Told me he had thought about trading it off for something newer but just couldn't do it. I don't blame him sometimes I wished I still had my 1982 Freightliner Cabover.

I've gotta take exception to the W.VA. winterfront!!!!!!   That has to be a CA. winterfront (for when the temp is 40 or below)! The reason I say that is my Dad's daily driver, '59 Stude 1/2 ton p/u, still gets 1/2 the rad covered like that beginning about Dec.1(although this year we had a cold snap in the end of Oct that brought it out earlier) and it'll go thru about the end of March. You have to select the donor box very carefully as the lighter boxes don't hang in there that long.:)

Now is the time in my area (Maryland) that we see lots of older trucks earning their keep --corn harvest time. Seems like coe's are now back in vogue to pull grain trailers. When the corn harvest is done, beans will be in, but after the beans, most of the vintage trucks go back into hiding.

Easy, I was driving back then too.

I still use cardboard in extreme cold if need be. By the way I like all the pictures. Lynn

Taken late last year in Israel - apparently the IDF has not sold off all of them and they get out from time to time...



375 hp and 6X2 still good enough for 65T heavily modified M60s.



The odd man out is an Austrian ÖAF which was supposed to fully replace the DMs but you can't kill them with a stick. The ÖAF is carrying a heavier Merkava and is iteself at least 25 years old, the DMs? 35....

It originally had a 425 cat, single bunk and torsion bar suspension. It has 2,500,000 miles on it and he still runs one load a week to stay out of my moms hair.:) As a kid I spent my summers in the passenger seat hauling watermelons out of the south to Chicago, Il and Milwaukee, WI were were my extended family sold/sells them.

Our first snow of the season here in Maine.  This 1987 359 Pete with a load of logs from Maine going to Montreal, PQ.

Here's a video of my '66 Chevy being put to work with that load of rocks.

Loaded Down

Seeing these old trucks working is a lot better on the eyes than the newer stuff. My brother's Dodge may be able to haul and pull more than my Chevy, but doesn't have the same exhaust ring or look as good doing it.

Bruce,,    With any luck a picture of the Alaska bumper on the truck will be here in a moment. It was made out of 1/2" thick steel and formed into a deep channel with rounded ends.  It weighed 300#'s.  Somebody produced them back them (or still does) because John Costley posted a pic of a yellow A model that had the same bumper on it..

The steel behind the sleeper was 1/4" boiler plate, nicely formed and welded.  I assume it was used to keep splash down and to carry tarps and such.  It was heavy,, too heavy to be carryin' around for what I'm gonna do.

I have not taken the sleeper off.  I think that would ruin the looks of the truck..

This is on the way to a truck show, I am on Interstate 40, Eastbound, about 30 miles inside Arizona. Have been putting on some miles just hauling our toys around.

Frank picking up a drill of ours just before Christmas. I posted the photos backwards of him backing out onto the street.
