    I have a question, why would Ford build a cab like that then add the sleeper after it was built? Its the same sleeper I see on the Ford cabover's that have the N model Mack cabs that you add to it.

    As a matter of fact im guessing it was a cost saving thing. Its the entire cab. You can see the finder well coverd up

    Yeah I've never seen one before. Don't even know what model it is. I've hauled to this place before and never even noticed it. I saw it the other day and thought it was odd looking.

    It a Ford H model ,also called the two story Falcon. Ford took a C model added the fiberglass panels to space it up into a Class 8 road truck. Quick fix when the GM Cracker box and the Dodge 1000 came out. The cover on the old fender wells is a tool box /storeage compartment. Paul

    This cab was mad by Budd and as was stated was used on the N model Mack and on hundreds of thousands of Fords from the 1960's to the 1990's. It was used for all kinds of applications, but was very popular for garbage collection and in the fire service. The low cab over is the C model. I was told it had the longest production run of any truck. That has since been surpassed by the R model Mack. The high cab over is the N model. You can see the fender cut out which was made into a storage compartment. Gary Mahan has one restored that had belonged to the late Mel Clark of NH. I always thought they were goofy looking, but they must have been very economical. If they did not have the sleeper compartment they had a shelf behind the seats.

    Yup! 41 chevy hit the nail on the head! being an ex-bedbugger myself,i have always been interested in the history of the moving and storage industry,i have some old records from my former employer (Atlas Van lines) and in 1967 1 in 3 tractors either leased or company owned was an H-model Ford! and as stated,they were more commonly referred to as "two story falcons" hard to find any vintage moving memorabilia WITHOUT a picture of a Ford on it!,they were VERY popular with movers,in my opinion,the only truck that was more popular with movers because it stayed in production longer,was the GMC Astro/Chevy Titan 90.................Mark

    My uncle worked for Walton P Davis Movers and ran from N.Y. to Florida with one. He was very upset when they replaced it with a I.H. Transtar.

    I remember a guy from Roanoke that had one hauling chips from Dillwyn, Va. to Westvaco in Covington around '79 or '80. Had a 220 Cummins in it. It wasn't this one, his was green, otherwise they looked about the same.

    It is the same cab as the C model, it is sitting higher with some skirting. That and the sleeper, not often seen on the C, make it look bigger. International did the same thing with the VCO low tilt cab to make the Emeryville.

    The C and H cab were Ford cabs. Ford contracted Budd to make the cabs. It was very common for truck makers to have their cabs made by a different company, just as it was once common for auto makers to have another company make the bodies for their cars. I suspect that Mack started the notion that it was Budd's cab, saying that the N cab was built by Budd in answer to people who called it a Ford cab - which it looked so obvious to be. Ford sold the cabs to Mack.
