Hello everyone,

I recently aquired a '69 R 600 I have known all my life. From '69 to '82 she was used at a lumber co. to pull a flat bed & shavings trailers. In fact my dad & I hauled the last load of lumber from the lumber co. in this truck in '82 when the lumber co. was closed & auctioned. Our local volunteer FD bought the truck, streched the frame and installed a duece & 1/2 body with a 1000 gallon tank. So, since '82 the ol' girl has been tucked away inside the station. Recently, it was decided to retire her so here I am. Hope to ditch the tanker body soon, shorten the frame back to original length and get rid of the lime green paint. I am not an avid poster but have found these boards invaluable with doing tractor restoration. I look foward to participating.

Here are a couple of pics. One of me sitting on the fender when I was 5. And the other of the truck in my shed.

Welcome to the zoo.

I think all of us here are trying to re-live our youth, thats why we put so much effort into restoring these trucks.

BUT, we still get old and can't sleep thru the nite, what we used to do all nite now takes all nite to do.

PS-make sure the truck is full of fuel
