    1959 Chevrolet Spartan 100 Tractor

    Jim I do not think the 409 Chevy was produced in 1959. I would think 348. Double hump heads on both.

    Haulmaxx suspension ?

    I have Hendrickson Haul Max on my 2005 western Star tri-axle dump 46,000lb 4.56 ratio rears.I bought truck new and it has close to 400,000 miles on itmostly hauling asphalt. I like it. Very little repairs I replaced 2 rubber blocks on one side that is it. It is stable when dumping and not an awful ride. sorry for late reply.

    Happy belated Birthday.
  6. My B-67 is the flat back cab. Same interior room as a B-61. Shifters in mine are placed right and are easy to shift.If it was a contour cab I would not fit in it.
  7. Mike Stormo always remember " Spoke Wheels Rule". Nice Nice B-57 same cab tin as a B-66 or 67. I have a B-67 they have small doghouse it is not in the way in my opinion.

    I agree with Rob about what it is worth maybe a little less..The ride home is a major expense from California to the East Coast.

    Odd ball International

    The IH 4090 was also called the "Turnpike Cruiser". Tackaberry from Canada brings a nicely restored one to Macungie at times.

    Studebaker Diesel

    My Dad had 2 of these with 4-53 GM Diesels 5X2 trans new were under $5,000.00. He was leased to Arco Auto Carriers at the time late 50's up to about 1966. He had 5 trucks hauling out of Kenosha Wisconsin American Motors ramblers and Studebakers out of South Bend Indiana. No Interstate 80 back then took old route 6 across Penna. They could not pull the hat off your head those trucks.
