  1. That is really nice, wish I could get the guy I have doing body work moving a little faster. He also is working on a Henry J, a 66 fast back and a 68 GTX at the same time. Truck Shop

    1960 B75 Rebuild

    Some kind of up date on progress, I have all the suspension brackets, steer axle, springs and parts and pieces rebushed and painted. Plus new crossmembers built and pre-painted. Next big item is ordering two new 30' frame rails which I will set-up and mag drill them pre-paint the insides. With having all the running gear done ready to go it won't take to long to assemble. I will post some photos when I have axles under it. Truck Shop

    Ford CL-9000 - Ford's surprise in 1977

    A friend of mine owned this 1980 9000 with a silver. I drove it several times he also owned a 352 Pete that I normally drove. Truck Shop

    That one deserves another
  7. The B75 I'm working on at the moment will probably run 20K when I'm done. And that is completely hand building the truck, because everything will be modified. the hood 14" longer, a new frame and totally different running gear. I have to build the outside frame steering, clutch linkage, all crossmembers , air intake, exhaust system, visor and several other goodies. But for me I have a ton of connections for parts and some of it has been given to me. I have a friend that runs a great machine shop for those items, plus I have lengthened 72 trucks over a span of 44 years as a mechanic. My advise is do a bunch of looking and investigating on costs before jumping into a major rebuild, having excellent sources is key to keeping the costs down. $12,000 in the KW I did some years back, Again I had most of the parts already.

    I see your a troll-standard Pennsylvania model or top line national model and one that can't read. I said I will get pics when I go back to get my parts. Truck Shop

    Those rear drives I traded out to a friend as basic scrap {no one around here is interested in them}. But If you are interested he will probably sell them pretty cheap. I think the ratio was 6.30 something could be wrong on that. I wasn't planing on using them so I really never looked. Truck Shop

    Well now I have to ask- I ran across two un-restored AC Macks and another that is restored today as a matter of fact. Now with those Mack's were two 30's KW's and a 1939 Pete. Now I have to go back to the salvage yard in the very near future to pickup the steer axle and other parts that were given to me for my B75 by the owner. And I'am going to get pic's. Big question does anybody want to see pics of the AC Macks. If so am I going to hear flack about the KW's and Pete I post under {Other Trucks}? Truck Shop

    That's true but they did build some west of the Rockies for a while. And I think that batch of cookies were the better ones. lol Truck Shop

    I think the title of this forum is Other Trucks. But I agree there are things everyone does not care for, for me it's anything east of the Rockies. Truck Shop

    I like damn near anything from 81 down. Old trucks have character, new trucks look look like a egg with small fins, can't tell one from another. And less reliable. Had a two reps from Freightliner-Portland in the shop a month ago discussing issues. I don't think they were impressed with me. I told them it's a good thing they don't build airplanes. Truck Shop
