  1. It could be comparing it to its predecessor - the B model - which would be true.

    Moxie truck.

    Odd Binder COE

    I think Daryl Gushee had a yellow one like that.
  4. The A model was built 1950-53. Do a search here for A40 and you will get a lot of posts about them. There were other A models as well that would be similar. If it is that complete, you might consider keeping it original. The sleeper cab would make it rare.

    What the heck is this beast?

    It appears that it still exists. Or it is a different one, it states that there were three. https://bringatrailer.com/2017/04/19/one-of-three-aluminum-unibody-prototypes-1953-liteway-cargo-truck/

    A classic - including the arm out the window.

    Nice pictures - heavy on Dodges.

    True. The bottom line is too many people that want too much stuff. And regulating the population isn't going to happen. No country wants to be weak by having too few people.

    1959 Chevrolet Spartan 100 Tractor

    It is certainly correct about GM putting new ideas into production in that era - from about 1960 to 1966. All had been done before, but they were different for a major American auto manufacturer at that time. Some of the things they came out with in addition to the transaxle were the aluminum engine, the overhead cam, front wheel drive, rear engine, V6 engine, turbocharging, pancake engine.

    Make a copy of this thread and get it to him.
  12. The production list lists three of them built until 1990, the R686R, R688R and R690R. I don't know what the last R is for. 1990 was also the last year for the RD.

    If you can't buy it, build it. Get some small lights. Buy a regular bulldog and poke its eyes out. I just skimmed over this, but it seems more complicated than it has to be. https://jalopnik.com/238353/if-you-cant-buy-it-build-it-wanky-the-safety-cat
  14. A "V" model (V-8) isn't it?
  15. Phase 1

    E9 questions

    Have you asked the dealer? If the guy owed them money, they probably did service work on the truck. They may have all the service records and someone there could have a good idea of what is wrong with the truck.

    R700 in Alabama

    The Superliner would have caused a decline in sales and models. There were probably few sold in the last years.
  18. Phase 1

    R700 in Alabama

    R747, 754, 767 and 770 are listed through 1985. Almost all of the others didn't go past the 70's.

    Little Generator:

    The way that float looks (my opinion only), it is possible it was caused by bacteria. https://www.bellperformance.com/blog/bid/40286/Microbial-Infestation-of-Fuel-Tanks-Use-a-Fuel-Cleaner-for-Bacteria
  20. Probably a DMM - a DM with a driving front axle. For pics Google Mack DMM and select Images.

    Brockway "Toughest Truck In The World"

    I wouldn't think the residents would generate much trash.

    Today's Project:

    How will you handle the wire for the lights on the mast? Could it be run on another sheeve on the hose reel?
