  1. This one was Green , It was bought new in Winston Salem , It was originally ordered with a factory Turbo ( Which it still has & and a Pyrometer in the dash) with a Dead axle on the rear, The second owner Pulled a lowboy here in Buncombe co from the early 70’s till around 1988 , ( mostly a 175 IH Loader ) it sat till I got it in 1996 , the dead axle was worn out so I removed it, I painted it Red and pulled Antique tractors with a lowboy for a while before I made a rollback out of it ,, I believe I do remember a Blue one pulling a lowboy around Buncombe co in the 80’s and 90’s maybe towards the Northern part of the county , I’ll ask around about it , Thanks
  2. Great Job your doing on the H Model,, It’s good to see someone restoring one , you really don’t see that many ! I have had a H67 for years, it was bought new here in North Carolina, then some friends of mine got it in the 70s to pull a lowboy, I got it and painted it and did a “ Half “ Restoration, I stretched it and made a rollback, I still use it , if there’s something I can help you with , let me know, ( It looks like you know more about a H then me , Great Work) ! I know a guy that has 2 that needs restoring, not sure what his plans are .
  3. Great looking Truck! What’s the story of the tank ? Very interesting!
  4. Beautiful, I’ll try to catch you one here in the Great Smoky Mts of North Carolina , it will not be that colorful!
  5. Thank you, it’s difficult to catch that here in the mountains
  6. Beautiful! What time of day was that picture taken ?
  7. Looking Great! It’s going to ALL be worth it the first time you ease up off the clutch, and it starts to move!
  8. Matt , That Cab looks SO GOOD! I haven’t had time to work on mine for a few weeks, still installing some of the old copper air lines on my chassis,, I can’t wait to see your cab on the frame!
  9. YES ! I can tell that the one with the Baffles is going to be sweet,, Thanks to EVERYONE for all the Advice, I should be able to swap a 220 exhaust in my sleep,, It’s All worth it !
  10. Did not have time to work on it much today, But I did get some header wrap from a local race car builder,, I think it will help keep some on the heat out of the floor
  11. A short video of it running with the Baffled Backdrop 0213F1CB-FA47-4C80-A52E-48A3BE2ADD0E.MOV
