    Old Graders and Tractors

    Vladislav- it does say Buda Lanova on the rating tag at the back middle of the block you can just make out the small brass tag. I was told this one is a 1952 one of the last Buda's before Allis Chalmers bought them out in 1953. Truck Shop

    A Couple of Macks

    Allen Chase the man who owns these has a personal museum in Union, Ore. He has three restored AC's plus a ton of other great rigs. Yes these are future projects. Truck Shop

    A KW, Pete and Federal

    A first year 1939 Pete and a extremely rare bird a 1944 KW built during the war in Yakima, Wa. KW's built during WWII are very rare, the Seattle factory was used by Boeing to build air craft so the truck factory was moved to Yakima. Very limited production during the war years, this is the only war bird I have ever seen. The federal is a X13 model.
  8. Two AC's I got photos of today. Truck Shop

    RDF International

    Found this 1959 RDF 405 today, still has the 220 but with a 10 spd. Hood and cab are pretty good shape but has the typical 405 fender rash. Plus two green ones to go with it. Truck Shop

    1960 B75 Rebuild

    No This frame is all Freightliner dimensions. Rail width is 33 1/2 front to back, have already figured out all the cab and radiator mounts. It will have outside frame power steering. Only thing on this truck that will be Mack is the cab, fenders and sheet metal. The hood will be extended 14 inches which will give it 14 inches between firewall and back of engine. And yes I'm not restoring a truck but rather I'm building one, and one of a kind. Adams can't beat that price on rails. Truck shop

    1960 B75 Rebuild

    Yeah that's for two rails and you are correct 80,000 lb tensile strength. I had to replace a rail on a 379 Pete 17 years ago, one 3/8 blank rail was $3,800 from PacCar. Truck Shop

    1960 B75 Rebuild

    Got my quote on frame rails today from HW Metals Portland Ore. For two 3.25" X 10" X 3.25 X 30'-5/16 grade 80 material formed $2,200.00. Very good price. Truck Shop
  15. 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
