    B Model With Steam Calliope

    That is correct, Royal Ahold. Giant of Carlisle runs the show and writes the checks!

    B Model With Steam Calliope

    Giant Landover but both companies are owned by the same holding corp.

    B Model With Steam Calliope

    I drove a truck for Giant 35 years and this truck was our parade ready, completely rebuilt show piece. I have driven it in the past, 673 with unishift. Giant made many truck showpieces in their shop for their drivers and shop. Unfortunately the company was bought out by a holding corp. and sold off everything and chopped the company up and sold most of the assets. Sad end to a good company. I wanted to buy this truck but didn't have the money then(new child) . Wish I could have it now but the owner is asking to much!

    64 C85F For Sale

    Hi Doug, I'm shocked your selling your C85, that is a beautiful truck. What ever your reason I wish you the best. If I had room I would love to have it because it's beautiful. My wife would like me to thin my herd a little but it's hard to part with them!
  6. Carlotpilot, I thought you had the MH rollback?
  7. I grew-up in a town close by and went to school in Doylestown. I also have a B61 very much like that one I tried to sell on here for $5000 that's alot better condition and runs good but no one was interested.I tried to upload pictures but it wouldn't work.
  8. I live in the People's Republic of Maryland and their historic tags have that written on the bottom of the tag but the tags look like any other tag. In the interest of safety, I put reflective DOT tape on the bottom of the tag (covering the historic portion). You can't tell it from a regular tag! This was done only in the interest of safety mind you! I have been thru scales in Md, Va, Pa, Ny, Wva, Del and never had a problem, except in Pa I was pulled over 2xs because of no IFTA stickers, but when the officer saw I was legal, no problem. Just make sure you received no traceable compensation for anything you'll be fine.

    b61 wanted

    It is an air-assist because you can still push the clutch in with no air built-up, but with more effort. It does have a unishift 10sp. When I get to restoring it, I will have to find another shift knob because the one on it doesn't work. I'm nor sure if I could just put a external air splitter on it like the eatons have. It will be awhile before I get to it because of other projects higher on the list. It runs buts has a bad piston(the guy I got it from was ether happy). I got the parts to fix it and another engine if need be.

    b61 wanted

    I'll try at some point here when I can. You can only see it from underneath. It is fairly complicated and looks not easy to repair if something goes wrong. It's one of my trucks waiting to be fixed-up and sitting in my barn, and is not on the top of my list to work on yet!

    My B65 has an air-clutch and uni-shift 10sp. It was an old Mason-Dixon fleet tractor. All I can say is that it works!

    I bought it seeing what it could be with some work, forgetting that I had many other projects going both car and truck. There's not enough hours in a day!

    Still for sale, it would make a great Christmas present!
