  1. Truck Shop


    New England Motor Freight is going out of business, is that true? Truck Shop
  2. Rails are drilled and painted and got a few parts installed, should have the crossmembers and suspension mounts installed this week. 280 wheel base on thirty foot rails. Truck Shop
  3. 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
  4. And a kill or maim you garden thrasher. Truck Shop
  5. These pieces of iron were hanging out with the AC's Truck Shop
  6. Your right, and this Pete was wrecked and repaired with some hood parts from a Fageol. Truck Shop
  7. 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
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. This thread for some reason reminds me of this rig http://theoldmotor.com/?p=144448
  11. 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
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
  16. I know where there is a complete one of these, Thornton Tandem Drive pretty rare they are. Except for carpilot how many of you have seen one of these. Truck Shop
  17. 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
