What series of truck are you looking for? I assume a 600, but what type of engine?

That is a nice looking unit, I even like the spokes. From your earlier description, it sounds like minor work and you'd be in business to work with it.

really doesnt matter what engine just something decent looking and reasonably priced

I've been talking to a guy in Oklahoma on a 1976, or 1977 R686 with a good running, but weakening END676 engine and six speed. It's not all rusted out but has some breaks in the hood. I have another hood but I'm not certain what I'm gonna do with it. What are you looking to do? This is a short tractor with a wet kit on 38 rears. It is Budd style hubs F&R.

The type truck you are seeking is out there, but as you say, "expensive". Those V8 engines are getting very expensive and hard to acquire parts for. I have a couple V8 R700 series trucks and I like the exhaust note from the stacks. Never had needed to purchase parts for any but they are the older two valve engines and hard parts are basically obsolete from all suppliers. Sad too for as many years they were in production.

what would a r700 with a v8 be worth and what year are they just wondering

I'd say average condition from a low of $3500, to $5000 needing minor work to be usable. Of couse there are some gold plated ones out there the owners want far too much for. All three of my 700 series trucks have the cabs raised higher than a standard 700. This is the primary reason I like them. A lot of 600's and 700 have the cab right down onto the frame and the truck looks less menacing, or aggressive in appearance.

I don't have any trucks that are finished as far as restoration(s) so no photos of anything where it will be. Have a lot of projects torn down and into. There is reasoning behind each one that we can talk about later. Here are some older photos:

I do make a bit of progress most nights on something, and it's not like I can't find something to do.

It's a 1974 RL797LST. Engine is an ENDT866B (with Dynatard), 10 speed Mack transmission, Rockwell SQHD rears with 4.11 ratio, on Reyco 101 series four spring rear suspension. Also has wedge brakes at all corners that work well. It was a California transfer dump truck all of it's working life.

Plans are not clear for this one as of yet.

I know a good deal of it,i have been trying to track down the original owner/photos of this truck for YEARS! my plan (eventually) is to purchase an RL-series, and try to duplicate this one as closely as possible, i have been amassing parts, ideas etc. with this intention since i was a teenager. I saw this truck at the old overdrive magazine drag races back in the 80's, then eventually saw it on the road, but never got to talk to the owner,or take very many pictures. This is truck "mecca" for me! i always liked the look of this truck and the attention to detail was second to none, not overdone,not too much chrome etc.( in my opinion) the quest for info on this particular truck is what lead me to this website,and was one of my very first posts..........Mark P.S. i noted you have a RL-755L listed in your inventory! LOL!

That truck is the third and final RL755LST built. Mine is the second and sole survivor of the trio. It is numerically 487 numbers back from mine and to the best of my research a 1980, or 1981 model. The original owner's name was Bob Eckstein from the Chicago area. He quit trucking when his invention, (the truck APU) took off.

From my understanding that truck had the 1693TA Caterpillar engine, 13 speed Fuller transmission, with 3.87 Mack rears on Neway air ride. As supplied new it had a "Rest Rite" brand 36" sleeper and was upgraded to a "Double Eagle" brand at a later time.
